    I'm used to the samsung galaxy phone (4'') and can type quite easely (girl's fingers do have advantages) so I probably won't have problems typing on a 7''. Beeing light weighted is probably a heavy quality

    Well there you have it then- Aurora wins the day! Let us know how it goes when you have had it for awhile.

    Yes, I read ebooks every day on the 7". I think the 7" is better than my 10" for books because it is less bulky. I use FBreader for .epub files on both. I would think you'd be able to read subtitles on a 7" without difficulty.
    keyboard/case... not so sure that would be a benefit. Print on screen is small and having it away from you at keyboard distance will be difficult to see especially while in motion with the rocking of the train. You would have to zoom in on the screen, then type, then move page, type again, and so forth... Not good, I would think.

    Thank you Surely will.
    I think I'll wait one more week though, before buying it. Stock is low this days...

    No keyboard then, less expensive for me
    Guess aurora wins then.
    One more question, just to be sure: 3G external use works how? I don't know how they are called in english, but here we use an usb device, kind like a flash drive. Will it work with the Aurora?

    Thanks

    It's called a "3G dongle". I don't know how well they work. I have not used one. You would need to be sure the make/model of a dongle is supported by the tablet.

    Those are the main ideas to use it for... Will work on it only if I have to. Reading, watching movies and browsing are the main things I want to do with it. Beeing light weighted is really a plus.
    Thanks!
