Google Nexus 7

The specs show that the Nexus 7 is a 7-inch tablet featuring 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” which we can assume is a form of Gorilla Glass.

The tablet features a front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a micro USB port and NFC.

As expected, the Nexus 7 will run Google’s upcoming Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean” operating system, a platform about which very little is known at present.

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.

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.

Google has begun taking pre-orders now and the Nexus 7 tablets will ship in the next two weeks.
