Nexus 7, goes on sale on British high streets today. Reviews of the 7-inch tablet have generally been positive and US retailers, who began selling it at the weekend, reported shortages within 48 hours.
The Android tablet will run Google’s latest Jelly Bean Android software and is a serious gaming and surfing gadget. The 8GB version costs £159 while the 16GB memory gadget costs £199.– less than half the price of the cheapest iPad 2 – the Nexus 7 has an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, WiFi (not 3G) and a 1.2-megapixel camera.
But Apple is unlikely to let Android rivals steal the limelight for too long. As the imminent iPhone 5 prepares to wrestle back the smartphone crown from the Samsung Galaxy S3, a cheaper and smaller ‘iPad Mini’ tablet could go head-to-head with the Nexus 7 with a potential release later this year.
