Google’s new tablet

Launching in Australian stores last week, Google’s new Nexus 7 2013 features the highest screen resolution on the market for any 7-inch tablet, while shaving 50g off the weight of the previous model, taking it down to just 290g, almost 20g less than the Apple iPad Mini.

Tablets running Google’s Android operating system, including the Samsung range of products have been making significant gains in the Australian market over the past year due to being 4G enabled, compared to the Apple range of tablets which can only be used on the Australian 3G networks. Apple isn’t expected to release a new iPad which will be compatible with the Australian 4G networks until next year.

The Nexus 7 2013 is manufactured by ASUS and will retail from $369 for a 16GB wifi only model to $529 for a 32GB 4G version, making the Nexus 7 2013 up to $180 cheaper than the Apple equivalent iPad mini.

The Nexus 7 2013 is a more affordable tablet, easy to get started with and one of the best smaller sized tablets on the market for watching movies and reading ebooks. This new Google tablet is certainly worth your consideration when buying a new tablet.
