ASUS Nexus 7The simplicity of the first Nexus 7 was one of its biggest draws. It was light and easy to use and feature rich. Sure, it didn’t have a rear facing camera or a huge screen, but it did have ubiquity and flawless performance and total portability. Mine has been with me every day since I first got it and I won’t part with it for love or money.

Although, I  am very tempted to swap it for the new ASUS Nexus 7 that is just as affordable and stylish, but has a few extras thrown in for luck. It’s certainly had a ton of publicity with every news outlet screaming about the last dribble of information they’ve managed to find. It almost eclipsed the Royal baby. Almost…

So the Nexus 7 mark 2, or 7.2 as it is affectionately referred to, is one of the best of its kind on the market today. It runs the 4.3 Android Jelly Bean system – although I am willing to bet that Key Lime Pie will be released to the tablet quite quickly – and has some nice tweaks included.

The new Nexus 7 is thinner and lighter with an incredibly high quality seven inch screen. There are 323 pixels on this baby so the images and pages and games you view using this device will be clearer and richer than before. It weighs only 290g and the battery life is superb, giving you up to nine hours of HD video playback or ten hours of web browsing or eReading. Oh, hey, you can also charge it wirelessly. How cool is that?

Games such as Prince of Persia or Asphalt will glisten on the tablet and you should be suitably impressed by both the resolution and the excellent quality and sensitivity of the touchscreen. Of course, the device taps into all the services that Google offer so you’ll get Maps and Mail and Calendar and Play and and and… It’s pretty much an all-in-one tablet that does everything except call your parents.

ASUS Nexus 7Some of the tech specs include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, dual-band Wi-Fi, optional 4G LTE, 1920×1200 HD display, 1.2MP front facing and 5MP rear-facing cameras, stereo speakers, Andreno 320, 400MHz GPU, microUSB, SlimPort, 3.5mm audio, microphone and power/volume buttons. It will rotate, unlike its predecessor, and has a built-in compass too.

I am really excited about playing with this particular tablet, I think it is going to be worth the hype that’s surrounded it and something that will give the market a much needed shake.
