At the recently concluded Google I/O 2012 conference, Google took the wraps off their Nexus 7 tablet - their first tablet to have been manufactured by ASUS. For those of you who thought that the design of the tablet seemed a bit drab and/or just did not suit your taste, ASUS have come up with an ideal solution by teasing a range of covers that are designed especially for the Google Nexus 7 tablet.
Colourful covers teased
As per a post on Twitter, ASUS have previewed six covers for the Google Nexus 7 that may give the tablet a bit of a personalized touch. The colours of the covers that ASUS will release include Blue, orange, grey and a few others. As of now, there is no pricing or date of availability of these covers but you can expect them to go on sale through the Google Play store.
If you are in the dark regarding what the Google Nexus 7 is about, then here is an insight as to what the Google flagship tablet features. This model comes equipped with a 7-inch IPS display that boasts a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 chip. As for the memory, Google have added a 1GB RAM, which should be able to match up with the best in the business. This tablet should be a gamer's delight and Google has touted it to be a serious gaming device as the brand has added a 12-core NVIDIA GeForce GPU as well to the fray.
This tablet, manufactured by ASUS is not just designed to take on Apple’s highly successful iPad, but will also pose a stiff threat to the Amazon Kindle Fire and Google aims to tackle the competition better with its pricing strategy. The Google Nexus 7 tablet is available in two storage capacities, which are 8GB and 16GB and the brand has priced it extremely competitively at $199 and $249, respectively. This puts rest to the countless rumours surrounding the pricing of the tablet, some of which had pointed out that the price would be in the sub-$200 price bracket.
As far as connectivity is concerned, there had been rumours that the Google Nexus 7 tablet would not come equipped with 3G connectivity, in order to keep the price to a minimum and the brand have done just that. The connectivity options found on this flagship Google Nexus 7 tablet, include Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth and NFC capabilities. This tablet also comes with Google Wallet pre-installed. As for the camera featured here, it comes as no surprise that Google has just added only a front facing camera that can be used for video calls, but what is interesting is that this camera can shoot HD 720p videos.
The Google Nexus 7 will be the first device running on Google’s latest operating software, which is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. As for the availability, consumers from United States, Canada, Australia and the UK can pre-order the tablet from the Google Play store. Google have announced that the delivery for this tablet is scheduled for mid-July.
So hopefully, these trendy covers launch alongside the tablet so you can add that amount of flair to your new 7-inch Google Nexus 7 tablet.
