The tablet combines both Google and ASUS design with advanced software from Google paired with high-end ASUS hardware. All Google apps are pre-loaded here like Gmail, Chrome, Google+ and YouTube, easy to use and everything automatically sync across your tablet, phone and computer.
Nexus 7 created for portable gamers who are asking for hardcore games that’s why it is also packed with NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor for fast internet browsing, fast page loading, multi-tasking and smooth and responsive gameplay. A 12-core GeForce GPU delivers advanced graphics while the patented 4-PLUS-1 CPU design gives maximum performance when its needed and power efficiency when battery conservation is the priority.
Google set a $199 price for Nexus 7 which is worth considering as it set a new standard of pricing of high-end device. Its a good news that it is already available in Philippine market but the cheapest Nexus 7 I found online cost Php12,500. According to Google, every purchase of Nexus 7 are entitled to a $25 Play Store credit as a reward as well as two books and Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon for free.
