Google’s strategy with tablets is interesting, as it is selling them as a loss and aiming to recoup money through apps and content. As Google also make the Android operating system, you can rest assured that the Nexus 7 showcases the very best of what this user interface can offer.
Like the iPad, tablets are available in 16GB and 32GB format, with added 3G connectivity coming at a premium. Also like the iPad, the Nexus 7 does not offer you the ability to expand your memory through a microSD card, so make sure you opt for a bigger hard drive if you’re a media junkie.
With generous levels of RAM and a quad-core processor, the Nexus 7 runs on the very latest version of Android: 4.2. The benefits of using this include the ability to establish multiple user accounts, just like you would on a family PC. By using parental controls, you can subsequently control the content that younger members of the family get to see.
If you’re looking for cutting-edge tablet technology, a diverse range of features and a reasonable price – not to mention easy access to Google Play (Android’s app store,) the Nexus 7 should be at the top of your list.
