Nexus: Google is officially into tablet business


 

 

Google is officially in the tablet hardware business!

Google is about to launch Nexus 7 in next few minutes. Here are the first pics of the Google Nexus/Asus Nexus 7.

Both 8GB and 16GB models pack a 7-inch 1280×800 HD display (216 ppi) back-lit IPS display covered in “Scratch-resistant Corning glass”. A Terga 3 SoC powers Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) and Google promises the 4325 mAh battery should provide up to 8 hours of use. There’s NFC, GPS and and 1.2MP front-facing camera.

Contrary to the leak early today, ICS’s menu bar is still in tact with a row of icons positioned above it. You can see Jelly Bean’s slightly tweaked interace in the video below.

Pricing is inline with the rumors. The 8GB will go for $199 with the 16GB hitting at $249. For a limited time, buyers will get $25 in Google Play store credit with the purchase. Google is taking pre-orders now with shipping expected in 2-3 weeks.
