Google Nexus 7 (Tablet)

July 1, 2012

Google might of surprised us with the awesome Google Glasses Demo they showed off at I/O this year but the next best thing an affordable tablet that even a parent on the Family Tax Benefit* in Australia can afford. Google announce th

e Nexus 7, and of course its a tablet. The new Android slate running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with an amazing 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and of course a big 7 inch screen resolution of 1280×800.

The tablet which comes with 1GB of RAM (Random Access Memory), 1300 MHZ quad processor, and also comes with Google Chrome for android as its default browser. One of greatest features with the tablet (in my opinion) is that the screen is scratch resistance. So if your like me that throw my keys

in my bag with my electronics the chances of the screen being scratched is very slim. And this seems to be a feature lacking in many of the current Android tablets available on the retail market.

The only issue i have with the Nexus 7 is that you don’t have a SD card slot for expandable memory, basically your stuck with the basic Nexus 7 internal memory with 8000MB (about 6.6GB) of available space. However the tablet does have USB 2.0 ports and Micro USB support.

The Nexus 7 built my Asus also comes with Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Voice commands, Voice recording sensors and features. The Nexus 7 Tablet is to be released in the third quarter of 2012 in the US and its RRP (Recommended Retail Price) should be around the

$200 range according to Google.

    Hi Shaquille, Awesome information on Nexus 7 tablet. I agree with you and it will remain painful issue of SD card slot because it will become user limited within 6.6 GB of memory. By the way, android 4.1 Jelly Bean is really amazing and has several stunning and significant features like Google Now, offline voice typing, extended android bean, improved notifications and Jelly Bean camera app compare to the previous android ICS. Google has become highly hopeful with its Nexus 7 tablet and ready to beat its competitors in tablet world. Thank you for informative sharing.
