Here’s the web’s review of the newly released Google Nexus 7:
Plenty more time with the Nexus 7 is needed before a full review, but snap judgement: There is zero reason to buy a Kindle Fire over this. It’s brighter, sharper, faster, and infinitely more capable. Your move, Amazon. – Gizmodo
First, the specs. It’s a 7-inch device, with a 1280 x 800 IPS LCD that clocks in at 400 nits of brightness. That’s powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30L quad-core processor running at 1.2GHz. Wireless connectivity is 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth as well, but there’s no WWAN connectivity here, so you’ll want to stay close to a hotspot. Finally, there’s 1GB of RAM and either 8 or 16GB of storage. – Engadget
It’s nearly impossible to say after only a few minutes with the device, but on a superficial level, it’s pretty nice. With an IPS display the screen is vibrant with fairly decent viewing angles. HD videos look sharp. Speaker placement is a bit weird but audio quality sounds pretty good. The textured rear looks and feels high-end. – TechCrunch
