So I am going to be spending considerable time in Central America and am wondering which tablet would be the best one for me to use while I am down there. I have looked at the Kindle Fire and the Nexus 7 but am still undecided. Some folks on the internet have said that Google Play will not work overseas so that is a concern of mine. I borrowed a friends Nexus 7 for a few days and loved it so I would probably choose that one if the Google Play is not horribly limited when I am out of the US. I talked to a customer service rep at Amazon and she said that I will be able to download books onto the Kindle Fire overseas but I will not be able to do any movies. She said I will not be able to download songs onto the Kindle Fire but I can download them onto a seperate computer and then transfer them. Another question I have: If I use a Nexus 7 will I be able to access all the KIndle books at the amazon website? Those are the only two tablets I have really researched so far. There was one article on the web that said the Samsung Tablet was the best one for traaveling but I think that article was written before the Nexus 7 came out. I look forward to any info. thanks.
