Google I/O 2012 - Google have finally unveiled their cheap 7-inch tablet, which has been confirmed to be manufactured in partnership with ASUS. Nexus 7 sports a 7-inch 1280x800 display and NVIDIA's Tegra 3 SoC.
Nexus 7 weighs just 340 grams, thanks to its small 7-inch screen, it will reportedly last for up to 9 hours of HD video playback. Connections on the Nexus 7 aren't that bad, where we see Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, but no mention of 3G/4G connectivity. A front-facing camera makes an appearance on the Nexus 7, too.
Nexus 7 will ship with the recently-unveiled Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, and Google pitches Nexus 7 as the ideal tablet for music, movies, books, magazines, apps, and games. The best bit about Nexus 7 is probably going to be its price, slated at just $199 this 7-inch bad boy is going to be very, very popular.
