I'm in the market for the wife... she says she wants the Galaxy, but seriously truth be told, she doesn't care.

We're only going WiFi on either one, so the Nexus' lack of cellular antenna isn't a breaking point.

As far as I can tell, there are some pros for each, so I'm just struggling a little.

Nexus has better display, better processor. Android 4.1. Better battery.

Galaxy has expandable memory, better WiFi (I hear), Bluetooth. Proprietary charger. Android 4.0.

I have never found expandable storage important on the tablet. I have all of my music on my phone which is alsways with me.

The Nexus will receive Android updates faster. Samsung is notoriously slow. You would also have a more pure Android interface onthe Nexus if you don't like Touchwiz.

I see it is the 4g lte model; do you have to have a plan with it?

My daughter wants a tablet or a 3ds XL this year. Trying to decide between the two.

Office Depot has it for $229 in store. May be able to find a coupon to go along with it.
