So one of most awaited device is finally out! Google released it’s 7 inch tablet Google Nexus 7 on the first day of Google’s Conference – Google IO.
There were a number of rumours surrounding the release of Google Nexus 7, a number of designs and a number of others rumours did hit Google Nexus 7. Finally, the device is out and here are the specifications of the device:
- 7” 1280×800 HD display (216 ppi)
- Back-lit IPS display
- Scratch-resistant Corning glass
- 1.2MP front-facing camera
- 340 grams
- 8 or 16 GB internal storage

- Quad-core Tegra 3 processor
- 198.5 x 120 x 10.45mm
- WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
- Micro USB
- Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
- Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) - Google Nexus 7 will be the first device that will be featuring the newest version of Android i.e. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which is as big a unique Selling Property as it gets
- Tegra 3 Quad Core 1.3 GHz processor- Even though we have seen many tablets that function on tegra 3 processor but a 7 inch tablet is sure to give you the best and the fastest performance on a quad core chipset!
- Battery Life: 4325mAh! Finally, a device that appears to have descent enough battery life. People at Google expect the device to last 8 hours with heavy usage while more than 300 hours on stand by!
That’s pretty much about it as far as the specification of the device is concerned but then we did leave out on one of the biggest USP of the device- the price!
Google Nexus 7 tablet is priced at 200$ and is available in two different variants 8GB and 16GB. Yes folks, the device costs only 200$ and hence is a direct competitor to Amazon Kindle Fire but given what the device backs, it could surely give Apple a run for its money as well.
Google Nexus 7 will be released mid July in US, Canada, UK and Australia at the moment.
How the device will actually span out still remains to be seen but at the first glimpse and taking a look at the specifications of the device, it surely looks worth buying.
