In partnership with hardware manufacturer Asus, Google has released the much anticipated Nexus 7 tablet, which has found a unique position in the market due to its good build quality, high capabilities and astonishingly low price. The 8GB Nexus 7 is an affordable £130, which is the same price as Amazon’s Kindle Fire and a massive 60% less than Apple’s successful but costly iPad. However, unlike the Kindle, the Nexus 7 sports better features and has a central function that is not directed at selling books. This article outlines the pros and cons of Google’s Nexus 7 and also highlights why the tablet is an attractive option for businesses that need remote conferencing services as an alternative to an audio visual installation.
The Nexus 7 has many advantages when it comes to its features. First of all, it is the first tablet device to run the latest Android Jelly Bean, has excellent battery life and has responsive performance that matches higher priced tablets from leading manufacturers. There are a few disadvantages though. The Nexus 7 does not have any storage expansion, but if you are comfortable with relying on cloud storage and an internet connection, this can be overlooked. It also lacks a rear end camera and does not come in a 3G or 4G version.
Because the Nexus 7 tablet is in part developed by Google, Google services are seamlessly integrated into the device. For example, as a business tool the Google Nexus 7 tablet can use Google’s video chat instead of av integration. This makes the Nexus 7 suitable for business use, and also cost efficient.
