I just bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" to use primarily as an ebook reader & checking email & Twitter from the comfort of my bed. It was $199 from Amazon + $21 for 32 GB of flash memory & $44 for a cover with built in blue tooth keyboard.
It will be interesting to see how much I get away from using my Nokia N8 other than as a phone or on the road if there is no Wi-Fi.
The thing is the cost. This Samsung provides everything you could need including off-line GPS at a low price point. They will be up gradable to Jelly Bean in the coming months (weeks?) according to on-line reports.
I considered a Nexus 7 or a Kindle however as I live outside the USA I can't buy from Google direct because of licensing problems with Google Play & the same with Amazon.
