Asus Nexus 7

Nexus 7 is the first Google branded Android tablet. The tablet is designed by Google and built by ASUS of transformer fame.

The 7-inch tablet also introduces to the world Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean. The tablet is seen by press as a competitor to Amazon’s Kindle Fire, but Nexus 7 is more than just a content consumption device. The tablet features the new Google Maps which offers offline feature; all new offline voice search, and new Google Earth (with high quality 3D images).

Despite the powerful hardware, Google is looking at selling content through the tablet as the company has added movies, TV shows and magazines to its Play Store. The tablet will be sold in the US, UK, Australia and Canada so one can expect the availability of content in these countries.

The tablet is available for pre-order on Google Play Store for $199.
