We finally got our hands on the new Nexus 7. Is it really as great as everyone expects it to be? Read on to find out.
Last year's Nexus 7 from ASUS and Google was for a long time the 7-inch tablet to beat. It had a very competitive price at £199, and offered much more than what the competition had at the same price point. Initially it shipped with 16 GB of storage, which later turned into 32 GB, but Google kept the price the same.
That pricing stability did have somewhat of a detrimental effect in the long run, as the older the tablet got, the less interesting it became compared to other state-of-the-art 7-inch and 8-inch tablets. Take the Memo Pad HD 7 from ASUS, for example, it dropped in price so much it now offers a lot of bang for your buck.
In other words, it was high time for a new Google tablet. The new Nexus 7 keeps the competitive pricing. The 16GB Wi-Fi edition costs £199, the 32GB Wi-Fi model costs £239 and the Nexus 7 32GB with Wi-Fi and LTE (4G) is priced at £299.
