This is Google’s ploy at a $199 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet: the Nexus 7. It contains a 7-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display, a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 1GB of RAM, contains a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera, has WiFi with Bluetooth and NFC, sports a massive 4325 mAh battery for up to 8 hours of use, and measures 198.5 x 120 x 10.45mm, while weighing 340 grams. It makes heavy featuring of the Google Play experience, like movies, reading magazine and books, music, apps (just what the Store consists 600k of, anyways), and because of the Tegra 3 SoC tech, games. Especially graphically-intensive games.. Now for the price: $199 for 8GB, $249 for 16GB — obviously aimed to pin down and kill the Kindle Fire, using its slim 10.45mm thin profile and Jelly Bean operating system.
It has a striking chance. Just look at it: it’s produced by ASUS, therefor ensuring a satisfying build quality considering the price point. Google is currently taking pre-orders for the Nexus 7 and it should start shipping in 2-3 weeks from now. Oh, and to kcik things off, Google is including the Transformers: Dark of the Moon film on Nexus 7, free of charge. Announcement video for the Nexus 7 from Google can be seen below.
