While Google has released a number of Nexus branded "hero" smartphones in the past, the new Google Nexus 7 is the first ever tablet to bear the Google Nexus name. Built by ASUS, the Nexus 7 also has the distinction of being the first device to run the Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" operating system.
While the Nexus 7 offers nothing to consumers that can't be found elsewhere - save for Jelly Bean - it offers a number of refinements to the Android tablet experience in terms of both software and hardware. And it does it all at a sub-$200 price point that is meant to dethrone Amazon's Kindle Fire as the reigning Android tablet of choice for consumers.
With specs like a quad-core processor and a 1280 x 800 pixel display, that seems more than just possible. It might even be likely.
