Google Announces Nexus 7 Tablet, Offers Some Heavy Competition To Kindle Fire

We’ve been waiting for Google to announce the Nexus 7 tablet all day, and our wish is now granted as Google has unveiled their first self-branded tablet, running stock Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Manufactured by Asus, the tablet features high-end specs with a presumably low-end price with a super slim profile and design.

Full Specs:

Google is set to market the Nexus 7 as an access terminal to Google Play, so it’s clearly positioning this as a media consumption tablet. We’ll have to see how the likes of Amazon respond as they too are focused on media consumption with the 7″ tablet size.

The Nexus 7 tablet is available today, starting at $199.99 and includes a $25 credit for use in the Google Play store.
