Thursday, June 28, 2012 At the Google I/O developer event in San Francisco on Wednesday, the search giant took the wraps off a 17.8-cm (7-inch) media tablet. Made by Taiwan's Asustek Computer, the device will be shipped in mid-July starting at $199. The first quad-core 17.8-cm tablet runs the newest version of Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and also features the NVIDIA Tegra 3 mobile processor.

Besides competing with the mighty iPad, Google--with its new tablet--is also aiming to take down Amazon's Kindle Fire.

"Nexus 7 with Tegra 3 delivers a premium experience at a price consumers will absolutely love," said Michael Rayfield, general manager--mobile business at NVIDIA. "We're thrilled to work with Google as they create an innovative device that redefines the tablet market with quad-core performance, great battery life and the best of Google."

The Tegra 3 processor features a unique 4-PLUS-1 quad-core architecture for outstanding performance and exceptional battery life, according to the company. Tegra 3's fifth battery saver core shines in everyday functions like e-mail, social updates, watching movies and playing music, while each of the Tegra 3's four main CPU cores progressively powers on only as needed for demanding tasks, like gaming.

The new tablet features a 1280 x 800 IPS screen, comes with either 8 GB or 16 GB of storage, 1 GB RAM, 1.2MP front camera, micro USB port and access to more than 600,000 apps, millions of songs and books, and thousands of movies on Google Play. Equipped with a 4,325mAh battery, the tablet weighs 340 grams. It supports Wi-Fi but not 3G. It also includes NXP's PN65 NFC solution, which features an NFC radio controller and an embedded secure element.

Nexus 7 provides users with up to 8 hours of HD video playback, 10 hours book reading, 10 hours Web browsing and 300 hours standby.

Nexus 7 will initially be available in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Australia. However, there is no information yet on its availability in the Indian market.

You can now pre-order the Nexus 7 tablet SIM free from the Google Play store.
