Wow! Google has unveiled their Nexus 7, its first own-brand Android tablet..

This device is made by Asus, the Taiwanese computer components manufacturer rather than the firm's own Motorola hardware unit. 

Nexus 7

It will be sold for U$199 from mid-July pitching it directly against Amazon's Kindle Fire. It is set to be released in mid-July

The 7-inch device features a quad-core CPU & 12-core GPU processors onboard has a smaller screen than Apple's bestselling iPad and is 340g meaning it is also lighter to hold. 

It also features Google's Chrome browser at its default option - the first Android device to do so.
