In case you didn’t already know, Google has partnered with ASUS to build a stock Android device for Google, the Nexus 7.
It’s built for Google Play and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Nexus 7 will have a 7 inch 1280 x 800 display, the Tegra 3 chipset from Nvidia. Also included is a 1.2 MP front facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. It will run for nine hours with HD video playback, or 300 hours of standby time. Is very light at just 340 grams and is as light as your average paperback book. Sadly, it doesn’t appear if it includes a MicroSD slot.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMQdfGFK5XQ&feature=g-u-u’]
It will be available from just $199 USD and this price will include $25 of Play Store credit, as well as some freebies including the latest Transformers movie. It will be available in the US, Canada, UK and Australia from mid-July. Official United Kingdom pricing is set for £159 for the 8 GB model and £199.00 for the 16 GB version.
KitGuru says: No surprises here; it looks amazing and has the price point to ship millions.
