People have become more receptive to the idea of trying out the other brands of tablet PCs. This may be the reason why computer manufacturers are also trying their best to introduce new products as soon as they are ready. They cannot help but do this because sometimes, the products they have already launched perform less spectacularly than expected, so they always feel the need to bounce back with new products.
Google is one company that has joined the bandwagon by introducing the Nexus 7. Before, they were just focused on developing the Android software that tablet PCs use. But now, they themselves have developed their own hardware to work with their software. Price wise, the Nexus 7 is much more affordable than the iPad as it will be pegged at $199. It is said that it could be a great alternative to the iPad and because of this, people are already getting curious as to how this 7-inch tablet PC will fare in terms of performance. A lot of iPad users have been wondering whether to sell used iPad just in time for the release of this product.
What to Expect From the Nexus 7
This tablet PC belongs to the category of tablet PCs with 7-inch screens. The market is already flooded with products of similar size as the first tablet PCs of this size became hits when they first came out. People appreciated the fact that they were small enough to fit into any bag and they were able to bring it everywhere, yet the screen was still large enough for viewers to appreciate video quality.
The Nexus 7 is also lightweight at 12 ounces making it easy to use without users getting tired of holding it up for long periods of time even with just one hand. The $199 price tag will give those who are on the lookout for an affordable tablet PC a great option. It will also attract those who want to sell used iPad for a brand new device without having to shell out additional cash. For the low price, it will already get you the 8 GB model which is enough for a couple of movies and a great number of applications.
Since the unit has an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, you can be assured that it will be powerful enough to run your favorite applications without being sluggish or buggy. It also enjoys the status of being one of the first tablet PCs to come pre-installed with the latest version of Android, the 4.1 Jelly Bean. With this, you can be assured that the performance will be snappy and fast in executing commands and playing games or watching videos.
If you are looking for a new tablet PC once you sell your iPad, you can opt to get the Nexus 7. The low price with great specs will make you think that it is indeed a real good deal. You can expect a tighter competition between the Nexus 7, the iPad, and Microsoft Surface in the future.
