Could Google’s Nexus 7 Tablet start shipping next week?

by: AdrianJuly 6, 2012

Although Google put the Nexus 7 Tablet up for pre-order both in the US and the UK just hours after officially unveiling it, few of us actually hoped to get the tab before the end of the month. However, it now seems likely that we’ll see the 7-incher start shipping next week, based on a couple of hints picked up by the guys at Phandroid.

First off, you can see on Staples’ official website a very intriguing announcement saying that the tablet “will ship between July 12th and July 17th” and that “expected delivery is 1-3 business days, arriving no earlier than July 13th 2011”.

Ignoring that spelling error which takes us back in time one year, we have no reason to [...]

Archos announces single core Android 4.0 tablet for $250

by: LucianJuly 6, 2012

We were wondering how fast the Nexus 7 would push the Android manufacturers to make a competing product, and Archos is now showing us that it didn’t take that long. They are announcing a 9.7″ Android 4.0 tablet called the Archos 97 Carbon, with a 4:3 aspect ratio (like the iPad) that costs only $250. For that price you get a 1 Ghz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, microSD expansion, and a 1024×768 resolution display.

So how does  the Archos 97 Carbon tablet compare to the Nexus 7? Well first off, it’s a 10″ tablet, so if you think that the 7″ size is too small, then you might prefer this tablet over the Nexus 7 right away. It [...]

Hugo Barra talks about Jelly Bean and Nexus 7 in interview

by: LucianJuly 5, 2012

Android Director of Product Management Hugo Barra appeared for the first time on stage at the Honeycomb event last year. Back then, I remember thinking he didn’t do a very good job presenting Honeycomb, but I think it was also the whole environment that didn’t make sense and put him in a bad light. It looked a lot less professional than any Google I/O event, and it seemed like they just quickly rented a room to show Honeycomb, which wouldn’t be the only rushed thing they did in relation to Android 4.0. However, at this year’s Google I/O event I thought Barra did a very good job presenting Jelly Bean, and he did it in a very confident manner.

Google Nexus 7 pre-order page now up on Dixons UK

by: Bams SadewoJuly 5, 2012

UK folks, the days of yearning for Google Nexus 7 will be behind you soon. The 7-inch slate is now up for pre-order on Dixons Group’s online stores, which means you’ll be able to secure your unit of the Nexus 7 from the likes of PC World, Currys and Dixons and get it possibly before others do.  For now, only the 16GB model of the tablet is available to pre-order, while the 8GB model is nowhere to be seen. As expected, the former will cost £199.99.

According to their websites, if you pre-order the quad-core Nexus 7 tablet now, there’s a good chance that you will receive the tablet by July 19.

The Google Nexus 7 tablet is expected to officially touch down in the [...]

Google Nexus 7 – not so awesome across the seas due to lack of digital content?

by: Chris SmithJuly 4, 2012

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

The Google Nexus 7 is one of the best Android tablets of the year and definitely a tough adversary for this year’s Kindle Fire versions. 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 [...]

Nexus 7 ghosting issues affect some displays, is it a widespread problem?

by: Chris SmithJuly 4, 2012

The Google Nexus 7 is available for pre-order in various markets already, but the device is not available to consumers yet in those countries. The only Nexus 7 units that can be used in the wild right now are the white versions that were handed free of charge to all Google I/O attendees last week. And it looks like some of those units have some display issues you should be aware of.

According to Android Police, the displays of some Nexus 7 units have an image retention issue, also known as ghosting, that has been replicated at least on two devices. The publication discovered the issue by leaving an image on the display at full brightness for [...]

Google Nexus 7 teardown already complete

by: Chris SmithJuly 3, 2012

The folks over at iFixit managed to get a hold of a Google Nexus 7 five days after being officially unveiled at Google I/O – in fact they did score a white version, the kind that was handed down to all attendees of the developer conference – and they did what they do best, tear it to pieces.

We have already covered the Nexus 7 extensively since the first Google I/O keynote, so you should be pretty familiar with its specs and features, release dates, international launch announcements, rooting, custom ROMs and default OS version. So let’s take a look at some of the things revealed by this “official” teardown:

The Nexus 7 is 10.4mm thick, [...]

Google Nexus 7 hitting retail stores in Australia, same minimum price to be expected

by: Chris SmithJuly 3, 2012

The recently announced Google Nexus 7 Jelly Bean tablet is available from pre-order directly from Google Play in certain markets and it’s supposed to start shipping at some point this month. But the device will not be a Google Play exclusive, as Google plans to partner up with various third party electronics retailers to sell the device.

In the UK, Carphone Warehouse already announced that it’s going to have the 32GB version in stores in the near future, and now we hear that a variety of Australian stores are going to sell the device soon. Gizmodo Australia cites various companies that will stock the Nexus 7 in the coming weeks including [...]

Google Nexus 7 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS image released

by: Chris SmithJune 30, 2012

After launching its first tablet ever at this year’s edition Google I/O, a device that also happens to be the first one to run Google’s latest Android version, the company decided to release the full OS image for the Nexus 7 and make it available to anyone interested in it.

The image will let Google Nexus 7 owners restore the tablet back to the original Android 4.1 Jelly Bean version (build JRN84D), in case anything wrong happens while meddling with the device. That means you won’t have to be afraid of bricking the tablet while trying out new things, although that doesn’t mean you should go ahead and go wild on your Nexus tablet, especially [...]

8GB is too little? Four easy ways to free up space on your Nexus 7

by: Matthew SabatiniJune 30, 2012

Just as you’re about to pre-order that brand spankin’ new Nexus 7, you have to make the decision. Are you going to get the 8GB version for $199 or upgrade to 16GB for $249?

Coming from a guy that doesn’t carry a whole hard-drive of music around, the choice was easy. I went straight for the 8GB model and sprung for that sweet dark grey cover. But let’s say you’re a music junky and like to download all of the top new movies, apps, and games. The 8GB on the base Nexus 7 model can get crowded fast, and unfortunately, there’s no SD card slot to extend the storage.

There are a few steps you can take to [...]
