Google’s I/O Event 2012 couldn’t have been more exciting, with much improved Android 4.1- JellyBean features, which includes a better notifications system, a siri like voice assistant on Android and a lot other UI enhancements on the roll. I am overwhelmed with Android this time, though we don’t really focus on Android here on Gadgec. Android can be a mind changer, and Jelly Bean proved out to be a good example of it. Talking about Google’s own tablet, we are now ready to witness one of the smartest tablets ever in the human history, yes I am talking about Google’s Nexus Tablet, all set to give competition to the present day hot-tablets, specially Microsoft’s Surface and Apple’s iPad 3.
Well, based on what I have seen in the event, the tablet turns out to be highly efficient for you if and only if you reside in the United States. For outside use, it is not really much efficient and is like Amazon Kindle in many aspects. Talking specifically about the specifications of this Nexus tablet, we have a 7-inch display, supporting a 1280 X 800 HD resolution, backed by IPS Display Technology. The processor is a powerhouse- Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra Chip 1.3 GHz processor bundled with 12-core GeForce GPU graphics accelerator. The 1GB RAM provides smooth multi-tasking experience at its best on a 7-inch display tablet and supports all the everyday apps and multimedia.
Surprisingly Google missed out the rear-facing camera on this tablet, and decided to go with a standard 1.2 MP front-facing camera for video calling and other utilities.
Based on Google’s Android 4.1- Jelly Bean, this would be the first device to experience sheer Android experience which just got better with 4.1 release. Understand it like this- Jelly Bean is to Ice Cream Sandwich, as Windows 7 is to Windows Vista! The connectivity options include standard WiFi and BlueTooth capabilities. It’s is good to see a new product from Google, powered by its own new Operating System. YouTube and Maps app has been enhanced for the HD display on Nexus tablet.
Talking about the price, we are really happy to announce that at the time when Apple unveils a tablet priced over $400, Google has introduced Nexus tablet at a price of $199, which was expected before-hand. 8GB Nexus tablet is available for $199, 16GB for $249, and both can be pre-ordered from the Google Play Store itself. The tablets come with $25 Play Store credit as well, so you can download your favorite stuff on your Nexus tablet itself.
