At the Google I/O yesterday, Google unveiled their new 7-inch tablet, the Nexus 7. This is the Nexus’ first tablet and it seems to be going in direct competition with the Kindle Fire successor.
Even though Google now owns the Motorola firm, they decided to work with Asus on the design of the new Nexus 7. The Taiwanese company have already got their own branch of tablets.
The Nexus 7 caught the eye of many with it’s cheap price tag, starting the phone at $199 with an 8GB of storage, of course, if you feel this isn’t enough, you can opt for a 16GB tablet, which will cost $249.
The Nexus 7 will be the first tablet to sport Android’s brand new 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and is likely to include some of the newest features to the operating system that were shown off a Google’s I/O.
NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core graphics processor will also be present on the Nexus 7. There is a 1.2-megapixel front camera; near-field communication and 1200x800 LCD resolution.
The new Google tablet is one of the first to be considered an outsider in the battle against the iPad – with tablets coming out every month trying to claim the title, it seems Google have taken a chance to take some of the other tablet markets.
The Nexus 7 comes out late July, perfect timing for when the Kindle Fire’s successor is apparently going to come out.
