Excerpt: The Nexus 7 remains one of the best tablets on the market and the Nexus 7 LTE on Verizon Wireless combines always on connectivity with the Nexus 7 (review) we liked so much when the device arrived last year.
Summary: The 32GB LTE model is priced at Rs 27,999, which feels a bit expensive for a 7-inch Android tablet. However, when you compare it to Apple’s iPad mini with Retina at the same price, the LTE Nexus 7 offers better value as you get double the storage and LTE data too. Given these tablets were only just introduced into the market, the prices should drop in a couple of months. If you don’t need 3G, then the Wi-Fi only version is also a good pick as prices start at Rs 20,999.
Conclusion: The original Nexus 7 was a genuine game-changer - an Android tablet that was reasonably priced and offered incredible power and a version of Google's OS which actually worked properly on a large-screen device. This 2013 model takes the concept to a new level, bringing a massively improved display, more processor muscle and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Summary: In a way, it's a shame that Google didn't choose a new name for the Nexus 7. For while this looks very much like the original Nexus 7 tablet and costs about the same, it's a much more capable device. The first Nexus 7 managed to deliver an impressive tablet for the price, but there were compromises everywhere - from the inadequate memory to the low resolution screen to the uninspired design. This new Nexus 7 puts all that right.
Excerpt: It was a bit of a wait, but the 32 GB version of Google’s 2013 Nexus 7 refresh is finally available in Canada, and I got my hands on one. I’ve been using it heavily for the past week and a half or so, and I am completely in love.
Summary: The 2nd-gen Nexus 7 is, without a doubt, much better than the old one. From the form factor to the hardware, all aspects of the tablet have been improved. New technologies like LTE and Qi have also been incorporated and the shortcomings of the older model have been fulfilled.
