Blogathon 3/13 NewTech!

I have a new toy!

Yes indeedy, the Tablet generation has a new member.

I have finally managed to beg, borrow and/or steal the 32gb version of one of these:





A Nexus 10.




It’s very early days in this fledgling, but hi-tech relationship, but so far things are pretty comfortable.

I’ve installed the same applications on the Nexus 10 that I run on my phone (this blogpost is being typed via the very nifty WordPress application, using the SwiftKey virtual keyboard).

My two laptops have become exclusive to video and audio editing/production, whilst the Nexus 10 has become the primary Internet workhorse.

Because I migrated all of my audio, video, and text-based files and projects on to my NAS, just over a year ago, the Nexus 10 has access, via WiFi, to 1.5tb of multimedia data from anywhere.

One new development is that I’m also using the Nexus 10 as a Kindle.

So I have all this highly portable tech.

Shame I’m mostly using it for Twitter.

    Your primary internet workhorse?

    I know that they are good nowadays – and that Swiftkey app is pretty natty – but typing on a virtual keyboard has got to be pretty slow. Slower and more cumbersome than a proper keyboard. Isn’t it?

      So far so good on the KB front. I use the tablet in landscape mode and spread the virtual KB across the full width which means I can do proper touch-typing. But if I run in to a problem (haven’t yet) I have a BlueTooth keyboard which I could run in to the Nexus.
