We already knew everything there was to know about the Nexus 7, but Google went ahead and made it all official. The refreshed Nexus 7 for 2013 features Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, 2GB of RAM, a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 display, a 5 megapixel rear camera, a 1.2 megapixel front camera, WiFi N, Bluetooth 4.0, aGPS, NFC and more.
The devices comes in two different storage configurations. You can grab the 16GB version for just $230, or spring for the loaded 32GB version for $270. That’s “Google pricing” at its finest, and it’d be hard to find a more capable tablet than this for the price elsewhere.
Oh, and don’t forget that this thing will run stock Android 4.3 out of the box,
which we’re still expecting to hear about in the moments to come. Find more updates about Android 4.3 here.
The device will come with 4G LTE radios that work with T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon, all within the same device. You can grab a SIM card from any of these carriers and pop them right in to get 4G data going. (And, of course, there will be WiFi-only models for those who don’t need such connectivity).
The New Nexus 7 is said to ship “in the coming weeks,” in the US, Canada, UK, Japan, and more. For the US, pricing starts at $230 for the 16GB WiFi model and $270 for the 32GB WiFi model.
