Google Nexus 7: Cheap, Competitive and Beautiful

Google Asus Nexus 7 TabletNexus 7 tablet is a winner in many ways. It comes loaded with the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is the first tablet to have it. It is fast, fun, and full of punch. When compared to other tablets greater than $300 they all fall along the wayside. Not only can you surf the Web with ease, but you can play games without problems and it is compact.

The feel is solid and sleek for a $200 machine. There are just too many cheap tablets to overlook this beauty. The hardware is built by Asus, so it is no wonder that it is solid. The front is encased with Gorilla Glass and the back is layered with a slight grip, formatted in a stippled rubber. The whole tablet is 7.8×4.7×0.4 inches, weighing in at 12oz. You can easily hold it in a single hand for a long time without troubles.

The 7-inch IPS LCD screen supports 1280 x 800 resolution. While the resolution is greater than the Kindle Fire, there is a fat bezel encompassing the screen meant to give you a place to rest your thumbs without obscuring any part of the screen(while playing games).
