The Nexus 7, unveiled at Google I/O on June 27, 2012, is shaking up the tablet market with its great tech specs and incredible price of $199 for 8GB, $249 for 16GB. Running Android 4.1 OS, Jelly Bean and quad-core Tegra 3 processor, the Nexus 7 is co-developed by Google and Asus to be the first tablet of Nexus series. With 7-inch screen and 1280x800 pixel display, the Nexus 7 is bright enough and making you wonder if the screen could have been larger or the tablet smaller.
Versatile, well-built, fast and fun. Yes, this is Google Nexus 7. But you may wonder how about comparing Nexus 7 against the current king of tablets--the New iPad? Don't worry. Here let's give a look at it.
Screen: The first real difference between Nexus 7 and iPad 3rd generation is their screens. The New iPad’s 9.7-inch Retina display has 2048 x 1536 pixels of resolution, which works out to a density of 264ppi and is currently the best screen on a currently-available tablet among the market. The Nexus 7 doesn’t quite have the resolution of the iPad 3rd, but its 1280 x 800 panel has a respectable pixel density in the 215ppi range, which is still among the best of the rest.
Dimensions: These two tablets are also quite different in size and weight. The Nexus 7 is smaller at 120 x 199mm compared to 186 x 241mm; however it is thicker at 10.5mm against 9.4mm. Since the Nexus 7 is smaller than the New iPad, it is unsurprisingly lighter. It weighs in at 340g and the iPad at 652g for the more featherweight Wi-Fi-only model.
Processor: As we know the processor is an very important part of a tablet. The iPad 3 has an Apple A5X dual-core processor which is based on the ARM Cortex A9 architecture and has quad-core graphics. Google has opted for an nVidia Tegra 3, a quad-core chip along with a 12-core GPU.
Storage: Obviously the Nexus 7 loses out against the iPad 3’s storage options. It only has an 8GB and 16GB version, compared to the iPad 3’s 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models.
Connectivity: The New iPad has it in terms of connectivity. The Nexus 7 won't be available in a 3G version just yet, so the iPad is unchallenged in non-Wi-Fi terms.
Price: Although Nexus 7 seems to lose out on most aspects, its $199 to $249 price makes it win when compared to New iPad's at $499.
Above all, the price of Nexus 7 is an attractive factor with its impressive power. However, since it's a 7-inch tablet, it should aim to compete with other 7-inch tablets, like Kindle Fire, Nook Tablet, Galaxy Tab 2, etc. But not with 9.75-inch New iPad. The report goes that Apple will also release a 7-inch iPad mini in this October. We won't know which will finally win until then. Anyhow, currently, the New iPad is still remaining the king of the hill. But if you're looking for a tablet that is very portable and won't break the bank, the Nexus 7 is a good option.
