All New Nexus 7

There have been rumours in the smartphone industry of a launch of a new tablet from Google. Yesterday, Google launched a sleek, powerful, and updated version of its signature Nexus 7 tablet.
The launch event took place in San Francisco and Google ended up doing something really unexpected: launching Android 4.3 and a really cool device ‘Chrome Cast’.
I live-tweeted throughout the event. Here are some tweets covering that launch event.


Android 4.3

Ever thought about a tablet that have dual camera with main camera as huge as 5 mega pixel? Well, Nexus 7 has ’em!

Nexus 7 isn’t just about a polished upper crust, inside lies a powerful beast!

I understand that personal computers and gaming consoles still dominate video games industry, but what Nexus 7 came up with, would certainly set a benchmark for awesome computer graphics in mobile devices.

And when I thought that was all for the day, Google dazzled us with a piece of hardware the size of a typical flash drive. It is called Chrome Cast.

So, that’s what Google/Chrome Cast is. You plug it in the HDMI port of your LCD/LED TV, and it’ll connect itself to an Android 4.3-enabled mobile device. You can then run videos on your device and view them on your big ass TV! You can also create playlists and have your friends add/edit items to your playlists.

Like that wasn’t enough, Google launched an SDK (Software Development Kit) using which developers can make Android apps that make use of this new revolutionary device.

So, these were the highlights of Nexus 7 launch. The tablet will be available in the US on 30th of July and would cost around $300. So if you’re a gadget enthusiast (read: freak), you should put your hands on this device. Don’t forget to buy the cute little awesome device, Google Cast.

    • Thank you, Sara. I just added a link to a storify page that contains all the tweets I posted for the launch of Nexus 7. Much more detailed version now.
      Yes, the devices do agree but this one comes with updated Android OS and have many features like creating playlists, allowing friends to add, edit already created playlists etc.
      I’d love to get my hands on that little device.


  1. Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
