Nexus 7 - 2013 Gen

Postby tankee » Tue May 28, 2013 8:23 pm

A recent filing at Bluetooth SIG (dated 27 May) reveals more information related to the next-generation Nexus 7 tablet. The documentation reveals the model number of the "7" tablet to be "ME370T." This 7 inch Nexus branded tablet is made by ASUS and packs updated internal specifications as well as a new, high resolution display when compared to last year's model.

The new Nexus 7 is said to come with a Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels) 7 inch LTPS display as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core chipset (in favor of the nVidia Tegra 3 chipset). Android Authority reports a rather interesting observation; the device is running an unreleased "JWR11" software version which we all suspect to be the unreleased Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build......

It's available in the US now - glowing CNN review.

Somehow, the Nexus series has never caught my fancy. Despite the nice high end specs, I find them too thick and clunky, with too much bezel.

Oh, for me, the main factors were memory and price. My dd and I are light users of the tablet - just browsing and less than 10 basic apps. We don't even take the tablet outside the home; I did not want us to be that typical Singaporean family - superficially eating together in a restaurant, but each one lost in his or her mobile device. So, for us, the 32Gb Nexus with WiFi is good enough.

I agree the Nexus is thicker than (say) the Samsung tablets, but, in general, tablets are so much slimmer and lighter than laptops or netbooks, that, for me, focussing on the relative thickness of the Nexus is splitting hairs. :)

Nexus 10 at $688 is a good buy.
