Some of the mystery has been taken out of it, but Google has officially taken the wraps off of theNexus 7, its first reference-grade tablet. The 7-inch slate is the first and currently only device shipping with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and takes advantage of its optimization for smaller tablet screens, magazines and movies. Like was widely suspected, the tablet is built by ASUS (shades of Eee Pad MeMO ME370T, anyone?) and mostly draws our attention in terms of what we get for the money: that quad-core Tegra 3, 1.2-megapixel front camera and 1280 x 800, IPS-based LCD are traits we’d normally look for in a pricier tablet. There’s no SD card slot, however
Price and availability of the Google Nexus 7 tablet in USA
Google is asking just $199 for a dainty 8GB model of the Nexus 7 tablet and $249 for a 16GB version — that’s a lot of speed for the money, You can order it today and it’ll ship in mid-July. We’ll test the Nexus 7 as soon as we can, but you can swing by Google Play right now.
The 199$ price tag includes a $25 credit for the Google play store and a copy of Transformers: Dark of the Moon along with the latest Bourne book.
