It’s been a long time coming but Google’s ASUS-manufactured second-generation Nexus 7 2 tablet has finally hit the market. And it includes a decent list of features for its $229 price tag, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor powering on with a 1.5GHz CPU clock rate and a decent cache of 2GB of RAM.
Further, the main feature is the crisp LED-backlit IPS LCD touchscreen panel, measuring 7.0 inches and offering 1200 x 1920-pixel (Full HD) resolution, driven by an Adreno 320 graphics core.
You’ll find either 16/32 GB of flash to play with (depending on the model) but there are no external storage options available. It’s the first outing for Google’s new Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) operating system and includes a number of new features, not least of which is support for OpenG LES 3.0 and VP8 encoder. Next, 802.11 a/b/g/n-standard Wi-Fi will connect you to your home or office network and Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP covers wireless personal communications.
There are two versions of this tablet – one with telephony support and one without. For the model with, multi-network support over 2G is handled through the tablet’s 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900MHz band coverage while for 3G networks, the bands covered are 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100MHz.
Battery life is rated at around nine hours from its 3950mAh built-in Lithium-ion battery.
The tablet delivers decent-quality photos, thanks to its 5MP (2592×1944 pixels) image sensor with autofocus on the back and you get a simpler 1.2 MP camera on the front. It can also capture video at up to 1080p@30fps.
The Asus Google Nexus 7 2 lands on the scales with 290 grams and measures 200 x 114 x 8.7 mm. It was announced in July 2013.
