Meet the all-new Nexus 7: Same name, different game

So, what exactly is the diff between this new Nexus 7 and the Nexus 7 of last year?

For starters, this 2013 edition of the Nexus 7 now rocks a full HD (1920×1200) display. The one released last year, made by ASUS, maxed out at 1280×800.

This Nexus 7 also now comes with LTE connectivity, runs on a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor (vs 1.3GHz Tegra 3) with Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM (vs 1GB of RAM), preinstalled with Android 4.3, wireless charging support, and – last, but certainly not the least– a 5-megapixel rear-mounted cam to complement its 1.2-megapixel front-facing cam. More specs here.

Just like last year’s model, this Nexus 7-incher will be available in two variants – a WiFi only Nexus 7 and one with mobile data-capabilities, an LTE Nexus 7.

It’s scheduled to hit stores in the US on July 30 with a starting price of $229 (16GB). Based on current exchange rates, $299 is more or less Php9.9K.

No word yet if and when this baby will become available in the Philippines, but it is confirmed coming to Asia – Japan and South Korea to be specific.

Needless to say, if you’re one of those die-hard early adopter types, well, you know where you can get yourself a new Nexus 7.
