Are you a baller-ette on a budget looking for a small-ish Android tablet that will make you the envy of all your iPad owning friends (don’t quote me on that)? If so, you’ll be happy to know that Google is all set to drop the Nexus 7, a new 7 inch tablet that provides a lot of bang for not so much buck.
Coming in at 12 ounces, the Nexus 7 kind of looks like any number of Android phones that been released over the past year, only blown up to a bigger size (though 2 inches smaller than an iPad). It’s got a standard definition 1280 x 800 IPS screen covered with scratch resistant Corning Class, and a 1.2 megapixel front facing camera (with nary a rear camera to be found). Inside its svelte-for-its-size frame is NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 chip powering the latest and greatest version of Android, Jelly Bean (aka Android 4.1). In addition there’s 1GB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB of storage, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-fi. Oh, and it’s also got the whole shebang-a-bang as far as sensors go, like an accelerometer, magnetometer, and a gyroscope.
You can pre-order either the 8GB or 16GB version of the Nexus 7 now at various places (including directly from Google’s store) for $199 and $250 respectively with orders shipping out in the middle of July.
