Enter the new Nexus 7 tablet, the first device to run Android 4.3. The new Nexus 7 sports a 7-inch slim body with a thin bezel. Tipping the scales at 0.64lbs, the tablet is presumably light and would easily fit inside bags. Inside is a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and Adreno 320 clocked at 400MHz. There's also a 2GB of RAM inside and 16GB or 32GB storage options.
The 7-inch screen touts a 1920x1200 HD display resolution at 323ppi and Corning's scratch-resitant glass ensures the tablet will last for a long period of time. The new Nexus 7 tablet comes with a 5-megapixel camera on its back and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front. It's able to support Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, and LTE as well.
Another standout is its 3950mAh battery that promises to proffer up to 9 hours of active usage. The new Nexus 7 tablet is now available for $229 (16GB) and it will be available in the U.S. starting July 30th.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
