Google Nexus 7 gets Slimmer–Comes with Jelly Bean 4.3

Google on Wednesday unveiled a slimmer, more powerful Nexus 7 android tablet which is the first to run the android Jelly Bean 4.3. The ramped-up 2nd Gen Nexus 7 tablet which is housed by Asus is a 7-inch tablet. The 16GB Wi-Fi-only version will be available for $229, with a 32GB Wi-Fi-only model coming for $269. A 32GB 4G LTE (unlocked) version will retail for $349.

The key features are its HD screen which gets a real boost up to 1,920x1,200-pixel resolution with 323 pixels packed into every inch; front and rear cameras (1.2- and 5.0-megapixel, respectively); Bluetooth 4.0; a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor; 2GB of RAM; NFC; and an Adreno 320 GPU (the same graphics chip used in the Samsung Galaxy S4). There's also support for dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and wireless charging using any Qi-compatible charger.


The new Nexus 7 is the first device to support the latest version of OpenGL ES: 3.0. The new version includes support for higher-quality reflections and lens flares. Of course game developers will actually have to program these new features into games before you'll see any notable difference. Hopefully, with support for the latest version of OpenGL, frame rates on the new Nexus 7 will be higher than on other devices using the same S4 processor, such as the Sony Xperia Tablet Z.

Now thinner, lighter, and faster – Nexus 7 brings you the perfect mix of power and portability and features the world’s sharpest 7” tablet screen - putting over 2.3 million pixels in the palm of your hand.
The all-new Nexus 7 will be available in the US beginning July 30 (with more countries coming soon!).
The clean, simple design features a slim body, a thin bezel and a soft-touch, matte back. So it sits comfortably in the palm of your hand while the bright, beautiful 7" display brings your entertainment to life.

Google Nexus 7: Fear Less

At just 0.64lbs (290g), the all-new Nexus 7 is light enough to take anywhere and fits easily in bags, backpacks, and even back-pockets. With up to 9 hours of HD video playback and 10 hours of web browsing or e-reading, there's plenty of juice to get you through the day, and built-in wireless charging means you can charge, grab, and go.
