Google announces new Nexus 7 tablet

It's finally here! Google's next-generation Nexus 7 tablet has been launched.

Just hours after Best Buy posted pre-order pages of Google's alleged next-generation tablet, here we are with an official announcement from Google.

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.
