Google recently announced the Nexus 7 Tablet, which promises to make a huge impact
on the world of lower priced Android tablets. Designed by Google, but manufactured by
Asus, the tablet features impressive technical specifications including:

      7 inch 1280×800 IPS HD Display (218 ppi)
      Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad Core CPU with 12 core GPU
      1 GB of Ram
      8 or 16 GB of Storage
      9 Hour Battery Life (Video playback)
      802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth & NFC
      7.8″ x 4.7″ x 0.4″ and 12 ounces


So what makes this device so special over other Android 7″ tablets, like the Kindle Fire,
Nook Color or Samsung Tab 7? A few things really, so let’s go through them one by
one:

“Nexus” device by Google: Nexus branded devices traditionally offer the purest form
of Android, without any manufacturer skins/limitations. These devices offer the
reference hardware for Google, and are most likely to be upgraded to latest versions of
Android before any other device is. Since it’s designed by Google, they also have the
advantage of being made by the same company who’s making the operating system.

Android 4.1 Jellybean: This minor upgrade to Android focuses mostly on experience
improvements, such as a new coding system to boost average framerates of interface
movements (such as swiping) up to 60 fps. This will give the impression of a faster and
smoother device and is reminiscent of the “polish” that Apple devices are known for. 4.1
also includes offline maps and voice input and various interface tweaks and changes to
improve and support Google Play (formerly known as Android Market).
Open Device: The previous champion of the Android 7 inch tablets was the Kindle Fire
by Amazon, but it had one serious limitation: closed walls. Kindle Fire was designed by
Amazon to be a closed wall device where you would primarily look at content from
Amazon’s Music, Video, Book and online offerings. This was great for amazon prime
members who got free streaming of video and eBook rental, but not so great for
someone who wanted to install an app that was in the regular Android market but not
available in Amazon’s App Store. The Nexus, being stock Android, is open to installing
anything that will run on it.

Performance: Quad core Tegra 3 from Nvidia is the chip powering this tablet. What
makes this chip so amazing is the $199 price tag. This chip has previously been
reserved for the top of the line $500+ tablets. You’ll see quick app performance, fluid
and fast scrolling and faster load times of media.

So what’s my opinion? Order one now before they are sold out! If you’ve been looking
for a cheaper alternative to the Apple iPad or an Android tablet with the most bang for
the buck, this is the tablet to buy.
