Advice wanted for using a tablet in USA
My sister (who's not very tech savvy), will be going to San Diego in 5 weeks for a fortnight. She fancies taking a tablet and is also looking for a new phone. I've advised her already to get a Nexus 7 and a decent android smartphone. I've never been to the USA, and don't really know anyone who's been with a tablet. She'd like to stay connected while she's out and about - says she'll be doing some travelling while she's there - and keep herself entertained with movies, books & music.
I thought an N7 combined with an Android phone would be the perfect combo - she could tether the N7 to the phone. I also thought buying a PAYG SIM out in America would be a good idea too, and cheaper.
Was this good advice, or does anyone know better?
