Nexus 7 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. It weighs about 340 grams, has 1GB RAM and Tegra 3 processor. It also has a micro-USB port, a 1.2MP front camera. The battery backup is of 9.5 hours.
Google says, the tablet has been designed with gaming in mind. There are about 675,000 apps and games, a large collection of eBooks, songs, thousands of movies and TV shows, and the latest magazines available on Google Play. With this tablet, one can make the best use of Google Apps like Gmail, Chrome, Google+ and Maps.
Do you still want to wait?
Google Nexus 7 was named ‘gadget of the year’ at London’s T3 Gadget Awards 2012.
Though Nexus 7 has become one of the very successful tablets, its rivals Samsung’s Galaxy Tabs, Amazon’s Kindle Fire and iPad are very popular and have a major share in the market.
With iPad Mini arriving in India, Nexus 7 might face a tough competition. At the same time, people may not buy either of these and wait for Nexus 7 32GB model with 3G to hit the Indian market.
Are you the one who wish to wait or go for one of these?
