Google Nexus 7

A 7-inch tablet computer designed by Google and Asus that runs Google’s Android mobile operating system. The Google Nexus 7 debuted in late June 2012 with a starting price of $199 and is designed to compete with similar tablet devices like the Apple iPad, Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD and the NOOK Tablet HD.

The Google Nexus 7 runs version 4.1 (“Jelly Bean”) of the Android OS and features a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of internal storage and built-in near-field communication (NFC) and Wi-Fi connectivity.  The Nexus 7 does currently lack the cellular connectivity found in competing tablets, including some versions of Apple’s iPad, but a 3G version is reportedly in the works. Apps for the Google Nexus 7 are available via the Google Play app store.
