Nexus 7, Google’s first step into the tablet hardware market, was officially unveiled at Google I/O, though news of the device had already leaked prior to the event. With one, user-facing camera and a 1,280 x 800-pixel display capable of viewing 720p high-definition videos, the Nexus 7 isn’t just another e-reader. Despite its small size, the Nexus 7 tablet has a lot to offer -- most notably the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.
Priced at $199, Google’s Nexus 7 is said to compete price-wise with the Kindle Fire but boast iPad-like features and specifications. However, Nexus 7 is already facing a firestorm of litigation proceedings by Nokia, which is claiming that the tablet infringes on its Wi-Fi patents.
