Google Unveils ‘Nexus 7,’ 7-inch Tablet for $199

Looks like we were right earlier this week. >Google has confirmed the release of its tablet Nexus 7, which is 7-inches and will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The most appealing spec for me is 9 hours of HD video playback on just one charge.

According to Google:

The Nexus 7 comes in both 8GB and 16GB models, featuring a 7-inch 1280×800 HD display (216 ppi), back-lit IPS display, scratch-resistant Croning glass, a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and a 4325 mAh battery that promises about 8 hours of power use. The devices also tout near field communications (NFC) technology with Google Wallet, GPS and a 1.2MP front-facing camera.

The 8GB model will cost $199, while the 16GB device will be priced at $249. Google is taking pre-orders now and will ship the Nexus 7 in the next two weeks.
