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...

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.

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 Goo...

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. Bu...

Nexus-7-Root

Well, that didn’t take long, rooting the Google Nexus 7, a tablet that’s just two days old.
