When I was first handed the Nexus 7 box I was surprised. I knew that the tablet was small, but this box is tiny.  It’s also light and fits nicely into my handbag. A girl honestly couldn’t ask for more…

Actually, she could… This girl wants to know exactly how well the Nexus 7 performs when she throws a bunch of tasks at it, but first let’s take it out of the box.

As you can see from this picture, the Nexus box is minute and just gorgeous.

Taking the Nexus out of its pretty box reveals a tiny device that measures only 7.81 inches x4.72 inches x0.41 inches and weighs only 0.75 pounds. It is incredibly easy to hold in one hand – the right shape and weight for easy control and comfort. Beneath the Nexus 7 is a small black box nestled neatly between the edges of the packaging. It looks mysterious and interesting.

It’s just the charger and three little books. That’s all you’ll find inside the box, but they are enough to keep you going and get you started. The Quick Start Guide is, well, just that. You’ll have your Nexus 7 up and running in no time with that. The other is the Warranty and the other language instructions.

Just look at the reflection in that screen. Isn’t that amazing. That 7” display has 1280×800 high resolution with over one million pixels just sitting there, in your hand. I can’t wait to get this device charged and ready to go.
