(Credit: James Martin/CNET) The Nexus 7 has landed.
It turns out most of the rumors about a $200 7-inch Android 4.1 tablet from Google were true. The slate was unveiled during the Google I/O keynote this morning and like we expected, it’s made by Asus and packs a front-facing camera, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.
Google touts the potential of the Nexus to tap its Play store for gaming, movies, apps and e-books and magazines.
Google says its latest Pavlovian drool-inducer from the Nexus family will ship in July.
Those are the facts so far, but frankly, they aren’t worth a damn. What matters is what you think. Will you buy a Nexus 7 tablet? Has Google just blown Amazon’s Kindle Fire out of the water? Or is this new device still too little, and perhaps too late in a world where the iPad continues to be the king of touch-screen hill?
