Announced at Google's 2012 I/O conference, the Nexus 7 is the first tablet to be part of the Google-produced Nexus line of Android devices and is built by Asus. It was designed to compete against other budget tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet but differentiates itself with an unmodified version of Android 4.1.

Reviews and Hands-On Previews

The Nexus 7 is an amazing package for something that costs a penny less than $200. It feels like something that could sell for much more. It has a great screen, solid performance and a clean, clear, uncluttered version of Google's latest operating system, Jelly Bean. From a pure hardware standpoint it beats the Kindle in every way possible -- except for content. Amazon's selection almost always trumps that of Google's, both in terms of variety and cost, but that's one wonderful problem to have, because almost all of that content is just as available on the Nexus 7 as it is on the Fire. The only major exception is Amazon Instant Video, and with Netflix, we can live with that.

So, while we tend to prefer larger tablets that better differentiate themselves from phones, if you've been toying with the idea of getting a real Android slate but didn't want to spend big bucks for a big device, this is what you've been waiting for. This is the best Android tablet for less than $200 and the best budget 7-inch tablet on the market. For the moment. The race to the bottom in the tablet space is, after all, just getting started and, if the Nexus 7 is any indication of what's to come, we're in for a very good ride.

Honestly I think ASUS and Google have really done an excellent job here with the Nexus 7. The combination of a quad core SoC, IPS panel, solid construction, and the latest version of Android all for such a killer price point pretty much make it hard to really find any faults. Sure, it'd be useful to have a full size USB host port, microSD slot (though no Nexus has shipped with one since Nexus S), 5 GHz WiFi (Nexus 7 is 2.4 GHz only), or cellular, but the tablet wouldn't be $199 anymore. I also really feel like the 7 inch diagonal form factor is an ideal one, and the Nexus 7 is quickly growing on me.

Nexus 7 Specific F.A.Q

QUOTE
1-Does the Nexus 7 support MHL
   Unfortunately,no.

2-What about USB-OTG?
   Input devices like mice and keyboards are supported out of the box.You can mount storage devices if you've rooted the device and use Stickmount which can be downloaded from the Play Store.

If you look around at XDA or some tech sites apparently USB-OTGshould be supported but more confirmation is needed for now.

I would've gotten a local set as well, but I wanted access to the Australian Play store. Singapore and Malaysia Play stores don't have much movies and music to buy.

Btw, as far as I know, the $25 worth of free app purchases gets credited into the Google account that makes the order, not the credit card.... at least that's the impression I get from reading the various online documentation. So I'm not sure for people ordering in bulk from the US. It would be good if someone could confirm this.

From what i read at XDA the 25$ will be credited to the account that's added to the device. hmm.gif
