Google Nexus 7 is here, launching in mid-July

Ladies and gentlemen, the day is finally here when we see the first ever Google-branded tablet. Behold, the Google Nexus 7, an Android 4.1 tablet manufactured by ASUS. There’s no doubt that in it Google and ASUS have just made the most perfect Android tablet, and it’s beautiful as well. It will be launched with Android 4.1 along with the apps, games, books, magazines, and music from the amazing Google Play store.

Nexus 7 will be available in mid-July from the Google Play store for only $199, though it’s currently available for pre-order. As a bonus, if you order now, you will get a $25 gift card to spend in the Play Store. It makes the Google Nexus 7 the cheapest and yet most powerful tablet available in Android sphere. Have a look at the main specs:

  • 7-inch 1280 x 800 HD display
  • Tegra 3 quad-core 4-PLUS-1 processor
  • 12 core GPU
  • Front facing camera
  • 9 hours of of continuous video playback

There’s no rear camera in the Nexus 7, so maybe Google thinks that taking pictures from a tablet is appropriate and awkward. That’s about all that we know about the Nexus 7, and I am really happy to see this amazing masterpiece from Google and ASUS. Don’t forget to share your thoughts with us in the comment box below.

    It was soooo close to being awesome. Missed by THAT much. It appears that they neglected to add SDHC expansion. Dumbasses.

      I don’t miss it on my GNex, it is a cloud device. Is there something that is eating up space that I am not thinking of? Maybe getting pics off of a camera’s card.

        Since my tablets are never cellular, they don’t always have data available like my phone. I like to load my content onto the device, a lot of PDF books, many gigs of music, etc. I can fill up 32gb very quickly.
