Google Nexus 7


$199.00 Released June, 2012

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Quad-core CPU combined with Jellybean Android leaves almost no lag. Amazing price point. Great value. Available for sale direct from Google (and outside the US too!).

The Cons:No rear camera. Certain apps (ie. Instagram) won't even install because of that requirement. No SD card which can limit the media utility of the 8GB model. Highly reflective display - a real glare monster.

Google Nexus 7 is a quad-core tablet running Android 4.1 (Jellybean) announced at the Google I/O event in June 27th, 2012. It is available for sale directly from Google Play for $199 (8GB version) or $249 (16GB version).

Product Shot 2 The tablet is also available in Canada ($209 8GB, $259 16GB), and Australia. It will be available in the UK for £159 (8 GB) and £199 (16 GB). It is the first device to feature a the Jellybean version of the Android operating system. It can most closely be compared to the Amazon Kindle Fire, which is another 7" tablet with a customized version of Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system. Most notable difference between the two devices are the Quad-core processor found on the Nexus 7, whereas the Kindle Fire only has a single core CPU. Among other features not found on the Kindle Fire, the Nexus 7 features a front-facing 1.2 MP camera and a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution (vs. 1024 x 600 on the FIre) display, GPS sensor, Accelerometer, Microphone, NFC, Magnetometer, Gyroscope, and Bluetooth.

    lights a fire under the competition - should lead to lower prices across the board, a cheaper 7" iPad

    highly reflective display - a real glare monster

    The camera is pretty bad compared to iPad. Skype video won't look nearly as good.

    Not many apps are optimized for Android 4.0 and/or 7" so they may look bad

    LCD panel not as vibrant/sharp as AMOLED found on Android phones

    7" size might not appeal to all consumers. No 10" option

    Very large bezel, especially on the bottom

    Home screen and soft buttons don't rotate when you rotate the device

Erik: #google_nexus_7 I've been running a modded Kindle Fire with an unstable CyanogenMod 9 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for a few months. The Nexus 7 destroys my setup. It has all of the missing sensors and has a camera while also supporting the latest Android OS natively. Combined with the Quad-core CPU and an affordable price point. This is a great buy!!!!!
