Not a lot of difference between the two that isn't immediately obvious.
However if you like magazines or reading PDF scans of double column text you'll probably have a better time with the 8.9. 7" is great for books, but I think its a little on the small size for documents that were intended for a4/letter and have the formatting preserved.
That's pretty much where I ended up my thinking. Just don't know that it is worth the money for the occasional need? I can read larger size docs on my Kindle DXG or large size monitor. Plus, the 7" would be easier to sell when I want to upgrade.
