Google Nexus 7 Tablet

I've picked up a Google Nexus 7 tablet with the idea of using it for most of my day-to-day personal computing.    These activities are mostly web-browsing, reading/answering e-mail, etc., but I'd also like to do some writing as well.  This is going to require a physical keyboard.  Right now I'm using Apple's little bluetooth keyboard.   I ordered Logitech's Tablet Keyboard for Android, but it arrived with several keys not working, so I've returned it for a replacement.

So far it's been great.  The Nexus runs Android 4.1 (Jellybean), and is missing all the crapware that Verizon and Samsung have forced on my phone.  The size is about perfect - big enough to do real things on, but one-handable.   

The only missing piece so far is a good application for writing - something simple and unobtrusive, ideally not a service.  I'm try some things out but still having found the ideal solution.
