Google threatens Amazon’s Kindle Fire with $200 Nexus 7 tablet

Check out our full review of the Google Nexus 7.

Among a plethora of other cool new gadgets we’ve gotten glimpses of during Google’s I/O conference this past week, the new Nexus 7 tablet is perhaps one of the most exciting. The slick new tablet will run the latest Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system, sports a 7-inch display with 1280 x 800 resolution at 216 pixels per inch, a 1.2GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 12-core GeForce GPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB of storage, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Developers at Google said they’ve worked hard to ensure that Jelly Bean works smoother and faster than any previous Android OS — and based on the demo footage available, it looks like they’ve achieved their goal. Whether you’re watching movies, running applications, playing games, or just browsing the web, the Nexus 7 is designed to handle the task with unprecedented speed and responsiveness. At only $200, the tablet is poised to compete with Amazon’s popular and inexpensive Kindle Fire. Read more about the Nexus 7 in our original news story.
