      Google Nexus 7 The Tablet You Must Own...

We have played and fell in love with the Nexus 7..we love it for jelly bean,fantastic quality in terms of build and Screen.If you have never bought a Tablet before and if you all ready have consider the Nexus 7..which definitely puts value as its first redeeming character the reasons are many,lets try and convince you below:

When Google took to the stage last week for the first keynote of theGoogle IO Confrence everyone wanted to know more about Jellybean…but it was the anticipation of hardware announcements that was more exciting to a great number of Android fans.
Everyone had anticipated that Google would announce a Nexus-branded tablet during the show, and they did just that with the unveiling of theNexus 7. But Google surprised a lot of folks by announcing a new Android-based media-streaming device, the Nexus Q, hot on the heels of the tablet. I’ll talk more about the Nexus Q in an upcoming entry.
While it was a pretty poorly-guarded secret that Google was going to be releasing its own Android tablet in collaboration with hardware-maker Asus, people were eager to find out just what form the tablet would take. Even though the predicted $199 US price point was bang on, the hardware configuration checked in with a slight more robust spec than expected.

The Nexus 7 tablet is named for its 7-inch screen, sporting a widescreen resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. That’s not quite as impressive as the Retina Display on the new iPads, but completely suitable for a 7-inch handheld device.
Under the hood, the Nexus 7 has a bit of oomph: it comes with the Tegra 3 chipset teamed up with a quad core CPU and 12-core GPU. That means it should be able to deliver a fair amount of performance, whether it’s general number-crunching or graphics-heavy gaming.
What may be problematic for some, however, is the storage: armed with either 8GB (£150) or 16GB (£199), the Nexus 7 feels a bit light. And while other Android tablets come with a mini-SD expansion slot, the Nexus 7 seems to be lacking any hardware-based expansion options.
What does that mean? To put it bluntly: after installing a few apps or loading up a few videos, many users will be frustrated at the lack of space…especially those who tried to save money by choosing the 8GB model.

In some ways, this isn’t overly surprising, with Google doing its best to steer users to the cloud. During the keynote, Google stressed that the Nexus 7 would be “optimized for`google Play`in fact, when you fire up the tablet, your media will be front and center. The presumption, then, is that much of your content would stream directly to the tablet, instead of living on it permanently, obviating the need for higher storage capacities. Nice thought, but unfortunately it’s not how a lot of users actually work.

Now that said, the Nexus 7 does have a few other hardware goodies designed to impress. That includes a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, and the inclusion of Near Field Communications, for quick and easy transfer of data with other NFC-equipped devices. The Nexus 7 also features both WiFi and Bluetooth, but as expected at this price point, there are no cellular data options.
The Nexus 7 will also have the distinction of being the first device shipped with Jelly Bean already onboard, so if you order the tablet, you’ll be among the first to get your hands on this new version of Android. You can pre-order now at, but orders won’t go out until mid-July in the US and Canada.

Here in the U.K there are a number of deals Apparing like at Ebuyer,expect many more across Europe to as we expect the price to be competative even with high demand.

We give this tablet our Gold Star for Value,Quality and pushing the Price Benchmark
to New  Heights Google/Asus `Lucky` Tablet gets more than a seven from us it gets 9/10.

Useful Links For Nexus 7 Owners:

The Nexus 7 Guidebook is available over in Google Play for free.
The 84-page long book is an instruction manual for the new 7-incher from Google and Asus, but what should draw your attention most is the section dedicated to Jelly Bean. You’ll get a better understanding of all the new features in Android 4.1, so as to be fully prepared when the time comes to play with Google’s latest toy.
The OS’ resizable widgets, Google Now voice assistant, and expandable notifications are just some of the functions and features thoroughly explained in the Nexus 7 Guidebook, but there are also loads of very useful tips on how to make the most out of your Jelly Bean experience.
Standard Android usage is also pretty thoroughly covered in the new guidebook, and, while experienced tech users will probably browse right through most of those sections of the book, newbies might actually have a lot to learn.
Although this is a pretty “thick” piece of literature, the writing style and the formatting should make the Nexus 7 Guidebook a fun reading material. Worst case scenario, you’ll still catch a few glimpses of what the new 7-incher will bring to the table and you’ll at least make the waiting a bit less painful.
Unfortunately, as you might already know, Google Play still has some country restrictions for e-books, so the Nexus 7 Guidebook is not available globally. Our advice? If you can download it, just do it and don’t think twice about it!
