I use the Nexus 7 to receive Gmail and Hotmail. If I want to an email message I send it to the Dropbox from the Nexus 7 and then I go and print it on my PC since I don't have a wireless printer. Drop box is an app that you load from Google play.

Yes, if you have an internet connection to it! You should be able to IM, Text and email to whomever is on your contact list! You can call and video message (live video) if you have an auxiliary webcam hooked up or have the tablet turned towards you so the frontal camera can catch your image? That's one of the reasons I really love these little tablet PC's is that I can do everything that a smartphone does and more! Best compromise between a cellphone and a PC! Hope this helps! Be Well!

This camera was designed to only be used by apps such as Skype, however there is a work around.
Search the Play store for "Camera Launcher for Nexus 7". It is simply an app that will give you the icon for the camera, and you will be able to use it just like any other device.
Hope this helps.

The Nexus 7's from facing camera will only work with an app. Whether it is a video chatting app or a picturing taking app, you must open an app first to enable the camera. The camera does come with a native camera app, though, so you won't have to download anything if you wish to just take simple pictures with the front-facing camera.
