Google today at their I/O 2012 keynote introduced the Nexus Q, a media centre similar to the Apple TV, and also their latest tablet–the Nexus 7:
Nexus 7 is a no compromise Android tablet that’s designed to go where you go. With a stunning 7” display, powerful quad-core processor and up to 8 hours of battery life during active use, Nexus 7 was built to bring you the best of Google in a slim, portable package that fits perfectly in your hand.
Here are the quick specs on this latest Google device, that sports hardware from ASUS:
- 1280-by-800 high-resolution display
- 8 hours of HD video playback, 10 hours of web browsing or 10 hours of e-reading
- NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor
- Android 4.1, Jelly Bean; ships with Chrome for Android
- 1.2MP front-facing camera, NFC
- $209 CDN for 8GB, $259 for 16GB; shipping in 2-3 weeks
- Buy from Google and receive: $25 credit to spend on Google Play, free copy of Transformers: Dark of the Moon
The Nexus 7 presents itself as an iPad alternative, in a smaller form factor that reminds us of the Amazon Kindle Fire. It actually looks impressive and is comes with some impressive specs…but the 7 inch form factor is still yet to be determined as a hot seller. The PlayBook was a dud and Amazon doesn’t reveal their Fire sales numbers.
Anyone jumping on one of these?
