After Apple’s Ipad , Microsoft’s Surface , Google is going to release its new Tablet Nexus 7 ! It is rumored that the tablet will be released in the I/O developer conference in San Francisco this week (Yes the very conference in which CEO Larry Page is not going to be present!).
Google has confirmed that the new Tablet will run Android 4.1 O.S. Jelly Bean , also Google has said that tablet is 7 inch and has only WiFi support.
According to Gizmodo , Google’s new tablet Nexus 7, a 7-inch Tegra 3 device running Android Jelly Bean would hit the streets in July for $200.
According to the documents received by Gizmodo the tablet is built by Asus, with a 1.3Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, GeForce 12-core GPU and 1GB of RAM with two different storage variants: 8GB and 16GB.
The Nexus tablet will also feature NFC and run Google Wallet (probably only in the US) and Android Beam.
The screen is an IPS display with a 178-degree viewing angle, running a resolution of 1280 by 800. The device will also sport a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera. The battery will also give you 9 hours worth of operation.( “Holy Mother of God 9 f***ing hours”)
The 8GB model will set you back $199 USD and the 16GB will cost $249 USD.
The first clue was when Asus demonstrated the awesome cheap and wonderfully cheerful Eee Pad MeMO 370T at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, before delaying the unit indefinitely.
Apple has already played its announcement cards around iOS 6, Microsoft has announced Surface and Windows Phone 8, and Google risks being left behind without its own bespoke tablet product. June is one hell of a month to be following what’s new in tech.
Priced at $200, the Google’s Nexus 7 will become Amazon’s biggest problem post-launch, threatening the market share of the hugely successful Kindle Fire. The Fire runs a highly modified version of the Android operating system and prevents users from wandering outside the customised Amazon environment. The Nexus brand, however, has always been associated with the purest form of the Android operating system Google has to offer, meaning that it’s likely going to be a better experience. Google is also banking on the fact that the screen is better than the Fire’s, with a higher resolution and 10-point touch capability.
