What device do you use EpiInfo7 on?

My agency is using EpiInfo7 on the desktop to collect data. We're discussing purchasing tablets so we can collect program data while in the field as well. The Nexus 7 looks like a great budget option but I would like to hear what others are using and how it's going. One of my concerns is that the Nexus 7 has a relatively small screen (7", roughly the size of an iPad mini) but I've seen where others talk about using the EpiInfo App on their smart phones. Any feedback would be great, thanks!

We have a set of Nexus 7's that we have used on numerous surveys now and they have worked great! I wanted to buy the Galaxy Notes but they were just too expensive. We bought the Nexus tablets that allow a SIM card and bought the Otter boxes that said "WiFI only" and they work fine. Had issues in really rural parts of North Carolina with bad cell coverage (At&T) but otherwise they have been great.
