New Nexus 7 Tablet Preview

With the success of Google’s Nexus tablet, it was only matter of time before Google were to release a new tablet. At the time of its release, the Nexus 7 was a powerhouse of a tablet with a great screen resolution, powerful processing power and a slick Android interface with pure Android which far outshone any of its competitors with similar size screens.

Now we have rumors on Google’s next tablet, and based on their previous track record the new tablet should be a pleasure to use and an ideal tablet for those looking for the best in Android, coupled with some amazing specifications and of course the ease and flexibility that Android has over other Operating Systems.

The original Nexus 7 was designed and made by Asus for Google and came equipped with a 7 inch screen, Tegra 3 chipset, between 8GB and 32GB in memory, 1 GB of RAM and the latest version of Android’s Jelly Bean (at the time version 4.1).

The new Nexus has been rumored to be made once again by Asus, which is a good thing, because they done a brilliant job with the Nexus 7. To keep up with the competition’s growing need for more screen and less bezel, it’s rumored that the screen on the new Nexus will indeed be a lot thinner, which will make the 7 inch form-factor even smaller but keep the same screen size.

The original Nexus had a very impressive 1280×800 screen resolution, and potentially the new Nexus could have a full 1080p resolution, although this has in no way been confirmed. The screen quality should also be of a high quality coming from ASUS, and based on the amazing screen of the original Nexus.

One major change from the original Nexus will be Google and Asus’ change of chip manufacturer from Nvidia’s Tegra to an as-yet unnamed alternative chipset. Ideally it would be the superior Exynos chipset from Samsung, but only time will tell.

There’s no doubt that Android tablets really are progressing at an unbelievable rate, and the new Nexus tablet could be a mouth watering prospect. Until then, the Nexus 7 continues to sell strongly, so expect to see some price discounts in the near future as we get closer to the release of another highly usable and technically impressive piece of kit.
