In this post, we will talk about the first tablet of Google, called the Nexus 7. The Google Nexus 7 tablet is the first device to run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
It has a 7-inch screen with 1280 x 800 pixels, Wi-Fi, NFC, quad-core processor Nvidia Tegra 3 (With a 12-core GPU), front camera of 1.2 MP, pre-loaded Chrome browser, increased use of YouTube, optimized Google Maps, and a battery of 4,325 mAh.
The tablet does not have 3G or 4G, nor has a microSD card slot.
According to Google, the Nexus 7 is constructed so that the user can take advantage of the reproduction of Google and its contents. The tablet will be available in mid-July in two versions: 8GB (which costs $199.99) and 16GB ($ 249).
Currently, orders are open. Note that for the moment, the tablet is available for pre-order only in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia.
As many of you know, Google is preparing to introduce a Tablet (Android) Nexus this year. It was recently heard that the first Nexus tablet would be manufactured by Asus.
And now, The Wall Street Journal seems to confirm this. Moreover, the publication cites “people familiar with the matter” saying that Google will sell the tablets directly to its own brand through online stores. This would be similar to what Google did in 2010, when it began selling the Nexus One smartphone online.
Both Samsung (with Galaxys Tabs) and Asus (with Transformer series) have been quite successful in Android Tablets.
The Google Nexus Tablet (manufactured by Asus) could come with a 7 inch screen and Android Jelly Bean, and cost $149.99. At this price, the $50 device would be more economical than theAmazon Kindle Fire, which sold millions of units since its debut in November.
