I guess that also means any interested hacker could eventually detail a method for enabling Android Market access on the Vox.
Bah, I kinda wish I waited for this Vox instead of getting a NC, but I know now at least from using a 7" tablet that I'd much rather a 10". Still, the Vox looks very nice.
I think for books, 7" is great; I picked up a 10" for the wife's christmas gift(asus eee Pad), and like the iPad I had tested for work a couple years ago, it just gets a bit to heavy holding it one handed for extended periods of time. But lying flat on your lap or on a table, it does fine.
Personally, I think 6"-8" are good for books, both in terms of screen size and weight, but if you want to do newspapers/PDF's, you're better off with 10"+. Our 10 year old is going to flip for the Vox because she's started getting into graphic novels and I think it'll work fantastic for it.
