This is the Google Nexus 7 tablet
GOOGLE together with ASUS has unveiled The Nexus 7.
With a 7" display, quad-core processor and all day battery life, the Nexus 7 is available for order on Google Play and will ship in mid-July, Google says.
Google also showed off a device that can stream music movies and TV shows at home, called the Nexus Q. The new device will compete with other home-entertainment streaming devices, such as Apple TV.
The Nexus 7 is powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and comes with either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM. The tablet is powered by a 4,325mAh battery offering up to 8 hours of active use. It also has a 1280 x 800 HD display with a pixel density of 216 pixels-per-inch, which is only slightly lower than the iPad 3 with its 264 pixels-per-inch screen density. The screen is covered with what is described as “scratch-resistant Corning glass”.
The tablet features a front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a micro USB port and NFC.
The 8GB model will cost $199, while the 16GB device will be priced at $249. Price includes $25 credit to spend in the Google Play store, plus a copy of Transformers Dark of the Moon.
