Having a mobile device means that you can take your work with you when you step out of the house, read your latest RSS feeds when you’re on vacation, and stay connected to the music you like. Unfortunately, unless you’re very religious in syncing music between devices, chances are you’ll forget a song at home and your playlist just won’t be complete without it.

Most Android devices, if not all, have in-built audio and video players. Although, there is never a guarantee that these players can support all audio and video file formats.

Update- We have just launched the best Android tablets of 2013 series.

At the same time, the device is not an iPad-killer, it’s not even intended to be one, and, moreover, it may do a lot more harm within the Android tablet ecosystems, as other OEMs will not be able to replicate Google’s current tablet strategy.
The Nexus 7 is an affordable device that packs quite a punch under the hood and is able to offer users access to Google’s latest operating system, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, right out of the [...]
