Nexus 7

Google was setting San Fransisco ablaze with its new Nexus 7 Tablet at their breakfast event yesterday. It has been exactly one year since Google introduced the world to their Nexus Tablet series. The Asus Nexus 7 boasts to have the sharpest display for a 7 inch tablet, with a resolution of 1920×1200 on a Full HD 1080p IPS display with scratch resistant Corning® glass. The 7.02 inch device has 323 pixels packed into every inch, which makes reading ebooks or viewing pictures  and videos a whole lot of  fun.

The key features of the new Nexus 7 excluding the HD display is that it is the first device which comes with the all new Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box.  The device also features a 5 MP rear camera which lacked in its predecessor and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. The new Nexus 7 does not fall short when it comes to power either, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 Quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. The device also comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and wireless charging . The most important part of any device is its battery and Google have given it quite a strong 3950 mAh battery, which is good to see.
