It’s been heavily rumoured for a long time now, and was even almost completely leaked just hours before the keynote, but finally Google have announced the Nexus 7 tablet.
Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (article coming later tonight), the Nexus 7 is the latest addition to the Nexus family, and hopes to dominate the tablet market.
The Nexus 7 is heavily based around the Google Play, the media store released earlier this year.
Screen, 7inch (gorilla glass)
Variations, 8gb & 16gb
Battery, 8 hours
Now the amazing part. The Nexus 7 starts shipping mid-July, for the mind-blowingly small price of £159, including £15 of free credit to spend in the Play Store. Tablets, maybe due to Apple setting the trend, have always been a very expensive device, often exceeding the price of a decent laptop. Good to see Google change things.
