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.
