Google has just officially joined the tablet wars as it introduced the Google Nexus 7 Tablet! Available now for pre-order on Google Play, the Nexus 7 tablet is scheduled for release mid-July. But sorry folks, it’s not going to be available in the Philippines during that time yet. What else is new? And you can’t check it out either from Google Play since it can only be seen by U.S. and UK banners. So, that means you can’t pre-order the Nexus 7 tablet (yet!) if you’re not in the U.S.
But I’m pretty sure, there will be some work-arounds to get the Google Nexus 7 on the same day as our friends in the U.S. So just be creative if you want to be the first owners of the Nexus 7 tablet. Why bother? There are several reason why. It’s Google’s first foray into the tablet world. The Nexus 7 tablet is almost as cheap as the Kindle Fire with the 8GB version priced at $199.99 and the 16GB model priced at $299.
As for the specs, well they are pretty decent as well and worthy of the price that you have to pay for. Take a look at these:
- 7-inch 1280×800 HD Backlit IPS Display
- Scratch-resistant Corning Glass screen
- 1.2MP front-facing camera
- 8GB internal storage
- 1GB of RAM
- Quad-Core Tegra 3 processor
- Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
- 4325 mAh battery
- NFC, Accelerometer, GPS, Gyroscope, Magnetometer
Looks pretty capable, right? Now, better start doing that work-around to get yourself a Nexus 7 tablet come release date. Good luck!
