Google Rolls Out 'Nexus 7' Tablet at I/O Developer Conference
On Wednesday, as Google's I/O Developer Conference got underway, the Internet search giant confirmed its new venture with Asus: the "Nexus 7." The 7-inch tablet runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and, perhaps most impressively, retails for just $199 (8GB model). The higher-end 16GB model goes for $249.
Here's what we know about the tablet's many features. There's a 1,280-by-800-pixel display (powered by the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset), front-facing camera, NFC compatibility, a quad-core CPU and 12-core graphics processor, built-in Wi-Fi, and, of course, Bluetooth. The Nexus 7 weighs just 12 ounces.
During a presentation at the company's annual developer conference, Google showed its Nexus 7 tablet which rivals Amazon.com Inc.'s popular Kindle Fire in both size and price. The device features a seven-inch screen that is designed to display books and other media available on Google's Play service.
Interested in the Nexus 7? If so, you won't have to wait long to get it. Google says the tablet will be rolled out in July - likely toward the middle of the month. So far, the most successful low-end tablet is Amazon's answer to the iPad known as the Kindle Fire. Only time will tell if the Nexus 7 will put out the "fire."

Love Android or hate it - more competition is a good thing and really drives TRUE innovation.

Good price but it looks terrible. No design to it at all.

The front of it looks kinda identical to, well a smaller iPad, or a larger iPod Touch. I mean, nearly freaking identical. I smell an oncoming Apple lawsuit, and they'll be right to do so.

You would think that Apple kind of have to release a 7" tablet to try and counter this.
The specs of the Nexus are impressive and it's going to sell bucket loads at that price.
AND The Fire is still not available here in the UK. It's almost as though they don't want to sell any.
Come on Apple and blow them away again with a 7" iPad 2.5 lol

apple innovates plenty, which tablet did you use before the iPad? creating the first consumer ready product in a category is innovation.

Windows Surface is still better!

This is more of a meh to me... Kindle fire 2 maybe?

I thought the specs were decent but no rear camera? You have to come with a complete tablet not just an E-Reader, hoping the user does not need or want one. Apple as set the bar and none of the competition is close. Good design and great OS=better tablet.

NFC technology? Really?
All iPad competitors here's your mistake you are clunking up your devices with as many features possible!!! Just keep it simple that's by apples > androids. Kindle fires sold cause they are just simple they do what they say they aren't confusing and loaded with millions of features

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Tuesday backed Apple Inc's request to stop Samsung Electronics selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the United States, giving the iPhone maker a significant win in the global smartphone and tablet patent wars.

Adding feature with pointless cause are dumb. They won't help the device sale ever thought of why apples successful? One reason is that they have one device and it's not clunked up so third party companies can make it compatible. You don't understand that millions of features don't sell. QUALITY OVER QUANTITY!
