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.
Among other features front and rear cameras (1.2- and 5.0-megapixel, respectively); Bluetooth 4.0; a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor; 2GB of RAM; NFC; and an Adreno 320 GPU (the same graphics chip used in the Samsung Galaxy S4). 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
