I'm planning a cross country trip to California from Chicago and back and I need some techie help as to whether a tablet could assist me in sightseeing photo preservation.

Right now I'm considering buying a tablet like or similar to the Google Nexus 7.
I currently use an Olympus XZ-1 10 megapixel camera,
but might also bring a small Canon Powershot for supplemental photos. Even with the Olympus, I can easily take 700MB worth of photos in a day! My plan was to download my camera(s) each night onto the tablet, and then upload them to a photo sharing site like Flickr. My question...is this at all feasible with a cheaper-than-an-iPad-tablet? My budget is limited so the lower the cost the better.
Any other suggestions on how to manage large quantities of photos on a long trip (6 weeks!) are welcome.
