Ask Engadget: should I get a 7-, 8.9- or 10-inch tablet?

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from Johan, who can't seem to determine which size is sizable enough. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I'm in the market for a tablet, mostly for content consumption but also for checking emails and being somewhat productive when I feel like it. I've never owned one before, so I'm wondering what size is best. I could get a 7-inch, 8.9-inch or 10-inch tablet -- I'm more concerned with the size than the OS, frankly. I need it to be portable, yet still feel "bigger" than my Droid X. Any opinions from those that have used multiple sizes? Thanks!"

A great question. There's obviously pros and cons to each of those sizes, and your options are certainly constricted down at the 7-inch end. That said, the now-discounted Galaxy Tab and the still-growing BlackBerry PlayBook would fit the 7-inch bill, and the choices spread out significantly when creeping up to 10-inches. So, what say you?
