Google Nexus 7 Is Now Official, Comes In July For $199

Google officially unveiled the Nexus 7 tablet at the Google I/O Developer Conference in San Francisco. Manufactured by ASUS, this is Google's first hold on a tablet of their own brand.

As the name suggests, the Google Nexus 7 features a 7" IPS display with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. The tablet is powered by a 1.3Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Tegra 3 chip with 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 12 core ultra-low voltage nVidia GeForce GPU.

And despite the capable hardware, Google managed to haged the price of the Nexus 7 impressively low. The slate will come in 8GB and 16GB flavors, which will retail for $199 and $249 respectively.

The Google Nexus 7 comes with Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) a/b/g/n, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity and Google Wallet preinstalled. Sadly, there isn’t a 3G model available, but obviously keeping the price as low as possible was key here. That's also the reason there isn't a capturing camera at the back, and only a 1.2MP front-facing snapper. However, it's capable of shooting 720p video, so it's not all bad.

Measuring 198.5 x 120 x 10.5 mm, the 7-incher weighs in at 340 grams which is respectful for its size. The Amazon Kindle Fire and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will be having a hard time, indeed.

Here's the promo video of the Google Nexus 7.

The Google Nexus 7 is available for pre-order correct now in the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK and will start shipping mid-July. An 8GB version will cost $199, and $249 for the 16GB model.
