Take a look at the ASUS Transformer series

I strongly advise you to take a look at the ASUS Transformer series.  They are 10" Android tablets with an optional keyboard dock.  The killer feature is that not only do they support microSD cards, but the keyboard dock has a standard SD card slot and USB ports (in addition to carrying extra battery power).

What this means to the photographer is that you can pull your SD card from your NEX, pop it into the Transformer and work right away - upload to Flickr/Dropbox/Picasa, copy from SD card to the Transformer memory or even onto an external USB memory stick or portable hard drive.

The down-side is that the best ones (Prime & Infinity)  are quite pricey, though the more cheaply built TF300 is reputedly very good. Obviously they are larger and heavier than the 7" tablets.

I use Photoshop Touch on the original Transformer TF101 and it's useful but sluggish compared to the newer models. Because it has USB ports, you can plug in a mouse for more accurate editing than can be achieved using your finger.
