The Nexus 7 has, without a doubt, proven itself in the market. The sales alone show how popular this handy little device has become. So what else can you look forward to, and do, with your Nexus 7 and what tips can I give you to get the most out of it.

Tethering your Nexus 7 to your mobile phone to so as to use the latter’s 3G connection is a viable option if you happen to be caught out and need the internet on the spot. It isn’t advisable to do this for more than very light use as it is both expensive and slow.

To do this you’ll need to head for the Settings function on your mobile phone where you should find an option for Tethering or Wi-Fi Hotspot. You can then set this up using the built-in guide on your mobile phone. Unfortunately this isn’t always as easy as it sounds as some mobile phone providers may have disabled this option and you’ll have to pay extra to open it up.

If you happen to be lucky enough to not have this option disabled, you can then tether your Nexus 7 to your phone via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth or even USB, depending on what you have to hand and what options are available to you. You can also use apps to handle the tethering for you should you want trouble-free internet access in a pinch, whenever that pinch may occur.

The app option may also be the one you want to use if your mobile phone is disabled. Or you can invest in a 3G dongle that you can slip into your bag/pocket/case for internet emergencies. Just make sure it is charged, has a SIM and that you know the password!
