New Google Nexus 7 2013 16GB Wifi Reviewed and Unboxed

The new Google Nexus 7 looks very similar to the old version and within seconds of  you can tell it’s the next generation. It’s slimmer and lighter than the original coming it at just 8.7 mm and 290g.

The best feature of the new Nexus 7’s hardware line-up is its amazing screen. The tablet still has a 7in IPS display but the resolution has been boosted from 1280 x 800 pixels to an amazing 1920 x 1200, giving it a whopping pixel density of 323 ppi. The display is simply gorgeous and without a doubt the best of any 7in tablet around at the moment.

Google has swapped from  nVidia to Qualcomm this year and the New Nexus 7 (2013) is equipped with a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core  processor and the memory has been increased  to 2 GB.

Google yesterday announced the new Nexus 7 with some impressive specification and is now up for pre-order in the US.  The latest version of the Nexus 7, features a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a higher display resolution (1,920×1,200-pixel resolution) and will ship with Android 4.3, and will go on sale priced at $229 (£149) for a basic version with 16 gigabytes of storage.

There’s also support for dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and wireless charging using any Qi-compatible charger.

The device will also be the first to feature the new version of Android, 4.3, which includes individual users profiles, which can be restricted so that, for instance, children cannot see in-app purchasing options that could land their parents with huge bills.

As soon as the New Nexus 7 is available in the UK I will be doing an unboxing and hands on review on my youtube channel – www.youtube.com/user/johnrshirley

Nexus 7 Updated Review and how its preformed over the past few weeks

In this video I talk about how I have been getting on with using the Nexus 7 over the past few weeks and also talk about what I like and don’t like.  One good application I really like is the Google Navigation.

This is the Nexus 7 32gb running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.  I have get been able to update to 4.1.2 as it keeps crashing on the update.
