Google just announced Nexus 7, a seven-inch tablet powered by the latest Android 4.1 operating system (Jelly Bean) with a quad-core CPU and 8GB of internal storage for $199 — the same screen size and price as Amazon's Kindle Fire.

Nexus 7 was built by ASUS and comes with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor which minimizes lag and provides quicker, smoother and responsive interations. A 12-core GPU delivers rich and immersive graphics while patented 4-PLUS-1 CPU design gives you processing power when you need it, and battery saving efficiency when you don't.

Google claims Nexus 7 was built to bring you the best of Google in the palm of your hand. Hang out with up to 10 friends on Google+ using the front-facing camera, browse the web blazingly fast with Chrome and, of course, crank through your emails with Gmail.

Nexus 7 was built for Google Play to access apps, games, eBooks, songs, movies, TV shows and magazines on its 1280×800 HD display. The tablet comes preloaded with some great entertainment, including the movie “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” the book “The Bourne Dominion,” magazines like Conde Nast Traveler and Popular Science, and songs from bands like Coldplay and the Rolling Stones.
