At last, the Nexus 7 is here. The much hyped 7 incher from Asus came out in public at the Google I/O event as expected.
The tab packs the brand new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the same $200 rumored price tag. But shipping starts only in mid-July only.
That’s a long wait for the Android fans. That is the reason why ‘buy now’ offers have already popped up in online retail stores with some Google I/O attendees trying to make a killing at the delay in shipping. All 6,000 attendees of the developers conference were blessed with a Nexus 7, Nexus Phone and Nexus Q social streamer. Now most of them are trying to sell the tab online.
One deal we spotted at eBay offers the tablet for $500 or a bid which starts at $250. But, it looks like Android fans are the most patient types in the world since nobody has taken the $250 bid bait so far.
However, another bid over eBay for the same machine has found 8 bids with 15 hours to end the bid. But the highest bid so far is $295.
The tab packs 7-inch IPS display of 1,280×800 resolution. Being the first 7-incher to have a 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core chip with a 12-core GPU, its performance has got applause from initial users.
Other specs include a Micro-USB port, 1GB RAM, a 1.2 MP front camera, a gyroscope, GPS, accelerometer, microphone, and 802.11a/b/g/n-compatible Wi-Fi.
The 8 GB version is priced at $199 and the 16 GB at $294.
