probably a Nexus 7 with 32gb. I don't think you can get a well branded 10 inch one at that price

Yeah, the 16GB ASUS Google Nexus 7 is probably the best you can get for this price. The 32GB Kindle Fire HD is 199 and it is not bad at all .

I don't think a 7" screen would be very good for the OP's needs. 10" would be alot better or a netbook with a proper keyboard.

Well I've been recommending it non stop since I bought it earlier this year but I will say it again, BlackBerry playbook will do those things really well. 129 for a 64gb version from pc world. Built in office editor will open word files etc. It's very smooth and snappy and nice to use if you don't mind a 7 inch screen.
