The Nexus 7 is an Android tablet computer co-developed by Google and Asus. The Nexus 7 is a 7-inch tablet, powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor with 1GB RAM and either 8GB ($199) or 16GB ($249) of onboard storage.
The seven-inch 1200 x 800 HD backlit IPS display packs a respectable 216 pixels per inch onto the screen. Sure, it's not quite as impressive as a third-generation Retina Display iPad at 264ppi, but given the price, users will have little to complain about from the display.
The front of the Nexus 7 is devoid of hardware-based buttons, but a 1.2MP front-facing camera rests at the top of the tablet front, which is covered entirely by Corning glass .
The Google tablet also has a more powerful, quad-core processor from Nvidia, twice the internal memory and better battery. At four-tenths of an inch thick and 12 ounces, it’s also thinner and 18 percent lighter. Go down the list of standard tablet features, and the Nexus 7 wins every one. Camera? None for the Kindle; the Nexus has a front-facing camera and microphone for video calls. Bluetooth? The Kindle doesn’t have it; the Nexus 7 does. GPS? Yes on the Nexus, along with a newly-enhanced Google app that lets you save maps for use even when you’re offline. The Kindle has nothing like it.
The Kindle has the Nexus beat in one significant area: the depth and breadth of the online stores that are designed to keep them stuffed with content. The Kindle is deeply integrated with Amazon’s shops for e-books, music, movies and videos, which are all far richer than the sparsely stocked Google Play store, but you can also play Amazon instant videos on Nexus 7 with Pavtube ChewTune, which can help you convert protected Amazon videos, it can also convert iTunes Movies for Nexus 7.
Curiously, Google seems to buck the landscape trend made popular with most Android tablets. While the Nexus 7 will indeed rotate for landscape use with apps, the home screen itself is fixed into portrait mode, as if Google wants to encourage users to hold it this way when not watching content designed for landscape, such as movies or TV shows. With Pavtube Blu-ray Video Convcerter Ultimate you can enjoy any HD video/DVD/Blu-ray movies on Nexus 7 freely.
The Nexus 7 will be shipped with the latest version of Android, 4.1, codenamed Jelly Bean. Additionally, it will ship with Chrome as its web browser. The Nexus 7 does not completely use the widescreen-optimized interface used by other Android tablets; instead using a new interface mode in Android 4.1 optimized for 7-inch tablets. This new mode utilizes a design closer resembling the interface used by Android 4.0 phones. However, apps can still use the same widescreen-optimized layouts used by larger tablets. Video playback has greatly improved, you can convert MKV/AVI/MOV videos to Nexus 7 for watching with the help you Pavtube Video Converter.
Compared to Nook Tablet and Nook Color, Nexus 7 has overcome them in many features, but they all excellent in content.
Hey, we're a sucker for free stuff, so the goodie basket Google includes with the purchase of a Nexus 7 is definitely worth another mention here. We also can't wait to see an army of Nexus 7 owners marching to local stores, where they'll whip out a seven-inch tablet to pay for goods using Google Wallet.Like many recent Asus tablet products, the build quality is on par with Apple. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is exactly the right step for Google at this stage, focusing on enhancing the existing user experience - especially given the low penetration of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich - instead of throwing cool new features against the wall to see what sticks.
