Even though the Google Nexus 7 has an affordable price, this tablet is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor, with 12 core GPU. It has a 1.2 megapixel front facing camera, Near Field Communication (NFC) capability and has a nice 7-inch IPS display at 1280×800 pixel resolution. Unfortunately there is no microSD slot for external storage. So you might want to get the 16GB version.
The Google Nexus 7 weighs 340 grams and fits perfectly in one hand. It also has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and is capable of 9 hours of video playback. The Nexus 7 is said to be “built for Google Play” according to Google.
The Google Nexus 7 is now available for order at Google Play for US, Canada, UK and Australia. And will be shipped sometime in July.
