Last year, the Nexus 7 gave consumers the choice of a small, sleek stock Android tablet that was easy to carry around with great hardware to power the device. The biggest deal breaker was the price too. We should expect nothing less this time as the rumored $229 for the revamped Nexus 7 will come with better hardware and even sleeker than before, possibly giving consumers a better deal than the first Nexus 7 tablet.
Not much has been revealed about the new Nexus 7, which is expected to be announced later this week, but what info has leaked is that it will sport a magnificent 1920X1200 display (based on a Best Buy ad). Yes, higher than 1080P and will surely be better than an iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display if or when it does come out. The original Nexus 7 resolution was at 1280X800. With a 1920X1200 display and costing $229 for 16GB internal storage, you get a nice HD resolution, with great form factor.
In comparisons to the original Nexus 7, the revamped Nexus 7 is slightly taller but more narrow. It’s processing power will likely be more powerful than the original Nexus 7 tablet with hopefully 2GB of RAM as well. Previously, it ran on an NVidia chipset clocking at 1.9Ghz Quad-core with 1GB RAM. It is also rumored to run on Android 4.3 which was recently leaked and has not been officially announced. This revamped sleek Android tablet will make for a great tablet to carry around with it’s great display and likely great processing power.
