SAN FRANCISCO, USA – Google has now officially revealed the company’s first tablet, the Google Nexus 7.
The tablet is lightweight, has a 7-inch HD screen, and will cost about $199 for the 8GB version and $249 for the 16GB one.
It looks as if it will be competing against the Kindle Fire. However, the Nexus 7 offers a lot more at this price. Google’s tablet is built by ASUS and packs a 7″ HD touchscreen display, a quad-core Tegra 3 chip. The device will feature a 1.2 MP front camera and NFC along with a powerful battery with 4325mAh in capacity.
The tablet is specially designed so users can fully benefit from Google Play, which allows access to more than 60 000 apps besides thousands of songs, movies, shows and eBooks. Furthermore, it incorporates all the popular Google apps, such as Gmail, Youtube and Chrome.
The Google Nexus 7 will be rolled out around mid-July starting off in USA, UK, Canada and Australia first.
