The 32GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet (2012) 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, Wi-Fi wireless connectivity and 4G mobile broadband for accessing the Internet from anywhere. Plus, 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 of 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.
