Also as expected, Google introduced its first Android tablet under the Nexus brand, the Nexus 7, which Google describes as powerful, portable and designed for Google Play. Running on Android 4.1/Jelly Bean, the Nexus 7 features a 7" 1280 x 800 HD display and comes with a Tegra 3 chipset, with a quad-core CPU and 12-core GPU. It only weights 340 grams, features a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera and allows to browse the web blazingly fast with Chrome. Not supporting GSM/UMTS connectivity, the Nexus 7 only supports WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth as well as NFC and comes with an accelerometer, GPS, magnetometer and a gyroscope. It has 1 GB RAM and either 8 or 16 GB internal storage.

The Nexus 7 comes preloaded with some great entertainment, including the movie "Transformers: Dark of the Moon", the book "The Bourne Dominion", magazines like Condé Nast Traveler and Popular Science, and songs from bands like Coldplay and the Rolling Stones.

Google will also included a US$ 25 credit to purchase your movies, books and more from Google Play, for a limited time. The Nexus 7 is available for preorder yesterday from Google Play in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia, and starts at US$ 199 in the U.S. It will start shipping mid-July. A worldwide availability wasn't announced.

Cheers ~ Arne
