Google’s Nexus 7 tablet given a node: Jelly Bean on the cheap
TweetThe much talked about reference-grade tablet debuts. Yes, Google has authoritatively taken the wraps off its jelly bean powered, the Nexus 7. Sure, there’s no tablet currently shipping with Android 4.1, and the Nexus 7 should benefit from its optimization for lesser tablet screens, movies and journals – we’ve heard that it also ships with Google’s Chrome for Android, (Yea right!) as if we would be surprised.
The tablet is apparently built by ASUS (hints of ASUS’ MeMO ME370T, eh? only if you’ve been around long enough.) and surprisingly though, look what you get in exchange of a $199 price tag? A resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, IPS-based LCD “scratch-resistant Corning glass,” Near field communication (NFC), 1.2-megapixel front camera and NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 are just but a few of traits you’d generally not find in a sub-$250 tablet. And it doesn’t end there; for that same price tag – Google ensures a dainty 8GB model and asking slightly more ($249) for a 16GB storage version, plus 1GB of RAM – some captivating speed for the bargain, right? However, this folks didn’t include SD card slot. We promise unbiased hands-on Nexus 7 soon.
