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.
