Google Nexus 7
Back at Google IO12 the Nexus 7 was introduced as the reference tablet for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The price was set at $199 for 8GB and $249 for 16GB model. It has a 7 inch screen, Android 4.1 and a quad-core processer all top of the line but in an inexpensive package. This was made to show other device makers what type of device Google wants to see made.
After seeing the power of the device and that I have wanted an Android based tablet I ordered one as a gift to myself for getting though school. It arrives tomorrow but I thought to give an overview of the specs and my thoughts on the device. I will add an update when I get mine up and running.
So what are the details?
7″ IPS back lit HD screen, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 8 or 16 GB of internal storage, 1 GB RAM, Quad-core Tegra 3 processor, ~8 hours battery life, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, and Micro USB.
Ok that was a lot of stuff, but what really matters is that it has a fast processer on a good looking screen with lots of internal goodies. At this point there is no 3G/4G networking option, and the only camera is a 1.2 MP on the front, but from reports there is space in the device for a rear camera and 3G antennas already built in.
So if you’re looking to get a tablet for a nice price with good specifications and the latest software this is a good device to look into. Even iPad fans that love there Apple devices think that this is a good tablet to have.
