Google stormed into the tablet market last year with the Nexus 7, a low-cost but high quality 7-inch tablet that significantly lowered the price barrier for Android media consumption. Despite the iPad mini launching just a few months later, the Nexus 7 sold extremely well, leading it to be the most prolific Android tablet, and seriously pushing other OEMs to produce quality devices for a low cost.
Enter 2013, time to refresh the Nexus 7 with a new model and new specifications. Asus is still producing the device, receiving a serious speed boost, a better quality display, a rear camera and new features. At $220 the new Nexus 7 presents itself as a remarkably attractive proposition for people who want to read, watch or play.
