The Nexus 7 , Googles first foray into the tab business is an amazing little device with a number of unique features. The front view of the tablet has no hardware buttons aside from the power button and volume rocker. The device spots a 7-inch size, which makes it easy to be stowed away into the bag or even one’s jacket breast pocket. Again compared with other tabs in that category, Nexus at approximately US$199 for the 8 GB model, is not bad.

Meanwhile the device has basically sold out on its first run in the U.S. although people are questioning whether it was due to its relatively cheap price or just that the device is a genuinely good Android tablet. The Nexus 7, especially for a tablet of this size, packs some serious hardware grunt. A quad core Tegra 3 processor provides the processing power, with 1GB of RAM providing enough memory, in tandem with Android’s fairly robust multi-tasking abilities, to handle the variety of tasks a typical day of use can throw at it.

The device itself comes with either 8 or 16GB of onboard storage, depending on how much cash you’re prepared to splurge (we’ve been using the $199 8 GB variant, the 16 GB model costs $249). Unless you want to store your entire music library or a collection of HD movies locally, either size will probably serve your needs, and Google is angling this as a cloud device made for its Play store.
