Google Nexus 7
1 August 2013
Excerpt: Balance. That's the key. Last year's Nexus 7 set the bar for small tablets with just the right balance of features, size, and price. This year, Google and Asus do it again. The new Nexus 7 balances size, performance, and price to hit the perfectly sweet spot for a small tablet.
Excerpt: The first Nexus tablet is made by Asus. It comes with a 7-inch 1280x800 pixels screen, 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Wi-Fi connectivity, 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera (for video chat), GPS, Bluetooth, while Android 4.1 Jellybean is running the show.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Excerpt: Google’s blessed Nexus line of stock Android phones now finally includes a tablet big brother. The ASUS produced Nexus 7 will be the first device to ship with Android 4.1 a.k.a. Jelly Bean, which promises a slew of enhancements from previous desert OS iterations — particularly when it comes to speed.
Excerpt: Google’s play in the tablet market is the Nexus 7, a 7-inch screen Android tablet clearly built for on-the-go use and once you play with this one for a while you’ll also see it was truly designed around and for Google Play.
Excerpt: Those of you who have followed my posts will know that my first tablet was the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7″ . I thought this was a fantastic form factor: slim, light and portable. It was so convenient with its 3G slot, and because of its small size, you could even throw it into your back jeans pocket – the ultimate compromise between size and usability. I then moved to the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet , a 10.1″ tablet.
Pros: Small, Portable, Latest Android updates first, direct from Google
Summary: The Asus Google Nexus 7 has a 1280x800 IPS display coated in "scratch-resistant Corning glass,", as well as a front-facing, 1.2-megapixel camera. The Asus Google Nexus 7 will be powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 1GB of RAM. Connectivity options include GPS, Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Micro USB as well as NFC. To top it all off, it will come with a 4325mAh battery and weigh only 340 grams. The price? Just USD 199 for 8GB of storage.
Excerpt: I've been salivating at the thought of getting a Nexus 7 for quite some time, as I really just wanted to test out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Do you remember when the 3DFX Voodoo Banshee video card came out, and it arrived with Half-Life: Day One? I was one of those people that literally rang every single retailer in my state (this was really pre-Internet) to get my hands on it. When I want something, I want it bad. This is how I felt with the Nexus 7.
Summary: The 32GB 3G version of the Asus Nexus 7 costs Rs 21,999, which is much better value for money when compared to a similarly spec’d 3G iPad mini, which costs upwards of Rs 30,000. The Nexus 7 still loses out to the Galaxy Tab 2 though, which is priced at Rs 16,000 and has expandable memory, rear camera and voice call support – something the Nexus 7 lacks. If you’re looking for a tablet for gaming, then the Nexus 7 is the most powerful out of the lot.
Excerpt: Google’s Nexus 7 worries me. As an iPad and BlackBerry PlayBook owner, I’ve been snobbish towards genuine Android tablets. Now, and as the Nexus 7 gently lands on my desk, I’ve seen the light. If you’re going to own a tablet, it should be this one. Thin, light and fast, this is everything the upcoming iPad Mini should be. But it’s the unique “Googleness” of the tablet that warms me to it.
