Just a couple of days ago the Nexus 7 refresh was revealed in San Francisco at a Google event along with Android 4.3 and Chromecast, a media hub that connects to your TV. But for this article we will be focusing on the new Nexus 7, more specifically why this is the first tablet that will actually be a threat to the iPad. First off lets run through the specs of the new Nexus 7:

  • 1920×1200 HD display (323 ppi)
  • Android 4.3
  • 1.2 MP front-facing camera
  • 5 MP rear-facing camera
  • Supports all LTE bands in US and Europe
  • Stereo speakers with built-in surround sound by Fraunhofer¹
  • 2GB RAM
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  •  Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor

Google is dubbing the new Nexus 7 the highest resolution 7-inch tablet on the market and they are right in doing so. Not only is it the highest resolution 7-inch tablet on the market but it beats larger tablets in resolution as well. Specs? It blows most other tablets out of the water, especially running Android 4.3 which boosts performance over Android 4.2.2. These things make this the first tablet that should have Apple scared, the new Nexus 7 could actually hurt iPad sales and help Google take over the tablet market.

I love everything about android and smartphones and always love learning more about them or anything else tech wise. I also love developing Android apps and learning new types of code in my spare time. My current devices I use are my LG Optimus G and Nexus 7, Pebble watch is still on the way.
