Google and Asus have teamed up to offer Android enthusiasts one of the cheapest Jelly Bean tablets available on the market, the Nexus 7.
Made official one month ago, the latest version of Google’s Android platform, Jelly Bean, has already been pushed to a few Nexus devices, such as Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ and Nexus S, but also on Motorola XOOM Wi-Fi units.
However, the first device to come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box is the recently launched Nexus 7.
Manufactured by Asus, the Nexus 7
is bang for the buck. The slate embeds a powerful quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, which is complemented by an ULP GeForce graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM.
The tablet’s 7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display supports 800 x 1280 pixels resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
Nexus 7 packs 8GB/16GB of internal memory and a high-capacity 4325 Li-Ion battery, which should provide several hours of continuous usage.
The fact that it’s been priced for under 200 USD (150 EUR) made it even more appealing to customers, which is why the Nexus 7 is hard to find these days.
Last week, Google halted orders for the 16GB version of the tablet due to high demand. It looks like the search giant has been caught unprepared and wasn’t able to meet the all requests for its Nexus 7 tablet
However, it appears that it only took Google several days to replenish the 16GB Nexus 7 stocks, so the tablet is now back on sale via Google Play store.
Customers who wish to order the Nexus 7 16GB should know that the tablet won’t arrive so fast on their doorsteps. According to Google, the tablet should reach customers within 3-5 days. Keep in mind that Nexus 7 is not available in all countries yet.
