Did you hear the news? Today at the Google keynote, a new tablet called the Nexus 7 was announced! Check out the following excerpts below from CNET reviews–

Nexus 7 will be available today on the Google Play store starting at $200 for the 8GB storage configuration, with units shipping in mid-July.

The Nexus 7 sports a 7-inch, IPS (in-plane switching) screen, with a resolution of 1,280×800 pixels. The tablet is also the first 7-incher to house a 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, which includes a 12-core GPU.

Rounding out the specs is a Micro-USB port, 1GB of RAM, a 1.2-megapixel front camera (no back camera included), a gyroscope, GPS, accelerometer, microphone, and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.

The device measures 10.45mm thick, weighs 0.7 pound, and, from the looks of the first pictures released, has a textured, grippy backside and looks to be about the same size as the Kindle Fire.

The Nexus 7 will be the first device to run the latest version of the Android 4.1 OS, also known as Jelly Bean. Google says to expect 9 hours of 720p HD video battery life.
