I went to Westlake High school so your post holds water.

you can have an app that can do word documents called documents to go,

the free version lets you read all oddice documents and pay version edit them. (easy to get paid version for free)

you cannot update it as it already comes with ICS(ice cream sandwich)

and is not supported for jellybean(fragmentation:p)


android operating systems goes in order of the alphabet and dessert

F froyo, G gingerbread, H honeycomb, I ice cream sandwish, J jellybean

So did I..

I lived in Foxmoore right near Westlake Elementary... also went to Colina...

Vote still goes for Nexus 7. It now comes standard with the 16GB drive, which is substantially faster than the old 8GB that was offered.

You won't be disappointed.

I haven't tried to run it through the paces yet, but I do games, netflix, forum, and some mild text use with an office program I got for free.

Also, it's great for a personal planner/calendar.

It's proven to be fantastic and better than the similar Samsung/Asus tablets. Do it.

I lived off of Via Colinas, off of Thousand oaks blvd. near the highschool.

I will take a look at the nexus. I may just give my daughter my Xoom.

Why not just upload the office files to drive and edit them for free in Google docs?

You can upload files (or folders) from your computer to Google drive. When you do, there is an option to convert it to the format that allows for editing in Google Docs (word, Excel, PowerPoint files). Alternatively you can just create the file in Gdocs and start there.

Or, if you want to keep an original copy, or if you already uploaded the files and didn't convert, you can create an editable copy after they're already there.

It's all free up to 5GB of storage.
