Amazon, Apple and Google! These are clearly the biggest three companies in the tablet market, and the owners of the only three ecosystems that really matter in the mobile Universe. In tumultuous waters such as those surrounding the imminent release of Microsoft’s Windows 8, each one of these giants is looking to secure a position in their customers hearts and wallets.

Google Nexus 7 720p recording

The Nexus 7’s 1.2MP front-facing camera is good enough for most uses, as long as 720p video recording isn’t on the agenda. Out of the box, the Nexus 7 is restricted to a recording limit of 480p. As it turns out, this actually isn’t a limitation of the hardware.


Things are about to change for those of you who live in Taiwan and crave for a Nexus 7 slate, although the rest of Asia might again be left out of the mix. All three major Taiwanese wireless carriers, as well as a bunch of electronics retail stores, have started taking pre-orders for the 7-incher and will ship the tab in a matter of weeks.


The Nexus 7 tablet has been a smash hit so far, but Google isn’t content with letting things lay as they are. Nexus 7 advertising started with a popular commercial that focused on a father and son camping in the back yard, now advertising has even hit the home page of Google.

While many sites and search engines on the web clutter up their front pages with ads and extra information, Google has almost always opted to keep their front page free of clutter and advertising alike. Though this isn’t the first time that advertising has arrived on the front page, it is certainly a rare occasion.
