The 16GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet from ASUS represents a premium Android-based device that delivers the best Google experience available on a tablet. Aside from including easy-to-use software and state-of-the-art hardware, the Nexus 7 is the first tablet to ever feature Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. Jelly Bean brings intuitive controls and a plethora of customizable options. With smarter notifications, beautiful new widgets and home screen customization, the Nexus 7 takes advantage of Jelly Bean's easy to use drag-and-drop controls.

Finding that perfect balance between practicality and mobility is a difficult task. Fortunately, the Nexus 7 combines both into a slim, lightweight tablet with a perfectly-sized 7" IPS display. With a 1280 x 800 native resolution, you'll be able to enjoy deeper black levels and vibrant color when playing your high-definition video content. The screen is made by scratch-resistant Corning glass so you don't end up with unwanted marks when carrying your Nexus 7 around.

Mobility is key for any tablet and the Nexus 7 is no exception. It is only 0.41" thin and weighs less than a pound so you can carry it around with you wherever you go without adding any bulk to your bag. You don't have to worry about low battery life either since the Nexus 7 can run up to 9.5 hours during HD video playback. Actual battery life may vary with use. 9.5 hours was achieved by playing a 720p video at 100 nits brightness with an external headset, Wi-Fi turned on and logged into Gmail.

Note! The nVIDIA Tegra 3 processor can run at 1.3GHz in single-core mode.

You can also tap the microphone on the keyboard and use your voice to type out your emails, SMS or anything else you want to text. The Android Beam makes it easy to share contacts, websites, apps, maps, directions and YouTube videos to other people close by.

          Comments about ASUS 16GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet:

          I am happy with everything about this tablet. It does everything I want it to do. The only thing I wish it had was an expansion slot for an sd card. For the price I am very happy with it. It does not have a fancy camera, which I don't care about. It is a basic tablet and does what I want, which is what I wanted in a tablet.

            Tablet is to be used with a GoPro camera, haven't used it for that purpose, yet. Been getting familiar with the features and it is easy to use and I think it will be great when it is wifi connected with the camera. It is light weight and very portable.

            I bought one of these tablets a year ago for my husband and he loves it. He uses it for everything. Email, movies, music, games, etc. It has a razor-sharp full-HD screen, long battery life, design is thin & light but not cheap, easy to navigate and learn. B & H Photo has the best price ever. My husband loves this tablet so much we just bought another for our granddaughter for Christmas.

            positives: beautiful screen, reliable, google with voice to text, great size.

                  Bought this for my wife who is not want you would call a "tech" person and she's off and running with it. Really enjoys how clean you can make the windows (doesn't have the preloaded stuff that Apple includes on the main frame that you can't hide).

                  Wallpaper selections are kind of drab, she's working on getting something better.

                    Got one for me, and one for my 52yr old mom, and so far its been really easy to teach her how to use. Super light... I take it to meetings with me... read with it... and of course Pinterest. I took it to a convention and followed along all day (in airplane mode) and at 5pm the battery was still at 77%. Great, inexpensive tablet for Jehovah's Witnesses!
