With the quad-core Tegra 3 and 12-core graphics processor, Google’s 7-inch Nexus 7 Tablet delivers fast performance, and… The newly unveiled Tablet in Google I/O conference, and Google’s independent brand, gives us much more surprise and choices in the fast-moving Tablet market. Also the Nexus 7 tablet is the hit to Samsung, Acer, Toshiba Android Tablet and Amazon Kindle Fire.
Like Amazon Kindle Fire, Google Nexus 7 Tablet possesses 7-inch HD display, but the high resolution 1280-by-800 LCD screen is higher than Kindle Fire’s 1024-by-600 screen. Besides, the fast performance as the above mentioned, benefits from running Nvidia quad-core Tegra 3 and 12-core graphics processor and it runs the latest Android OS version 4.1. The tablet looks and feels sturdy, the weight of 340 grams noticeably lighter than the 413 gram Kindle Fire. But with rounded, tapered edges, it doesn’t feel like a brick. It’s slightly thicker (10.45mm) than a Galaxy Nexus smartphone (9mm), it’s comfortable to hold and Android 4.1 brings a surplus of welcome additions. However, the lack of built-in expandable storage and omission of HDMI are disappointing and the design follows the plain, black tablet mold, with uselessly thick top and bottom bezels. Of course, we can choose the Tablet of 8GB or 16GB storage, and the low price $199 or $249 would contend against Kindle Fire.
Google Nexus 7 tablet is the perfect service to build around Google. Users need to input the Google mail and password to open Google service including Google Play store, Google Chrome, Google Maps, Google+, Gmail, YouTube, Google Earth, Google Talk, Google Gallery and others. Nexus 7 is the first device in Google own equipment to define Chrome as the default browser, and it’s the first time of Chrome enter the mobile space. It is worth mentioning is that the Google Play store also appears to be optimized for tablet viewing; it now sells magazine subscriptions, books, videos, movies, music, and TV shows, for which a 7-inch screen is the bare minimum viewer. User can rapidly access to relevant content, download and consume content by clicking the shortcut key. It’s exciting that Android owners finally have an official, fast, and legal way of getting movies and TV shows on their devices.
The Nexus 7 tablet is significantly cheaper than Apple’s iPad and much more capable than Amazon’s similarly priced Kindle Fire. It is available for pre-order now via Google Play and will ship in mid-July to customers in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia.
