With the announcement of a 7 inch tablet, Google has made clear that it would mainly be competing with Amazon and not Apple.
And when we consider the technical specs and price of the device, it clearly seems much better than Amazon Kindle Fire. With this tablet it is quite evident that Google has come a long way from its roots and is determined to evolve further in the arena of technology and information.
The Google Nexus Tablet would come with the latest version of Android named Jelly Beans.
Android has been improved to a considerable extent since its inception a few years ago and today it is quite successfully competing with Apple’s iOS.
User interface and overall app structure has been improved in Jelly Beans compared to the previous versions. Google has combined all of its services on a single device with this tablet which clearly provides it an edge over its competitors.
The excellent hardware of Nexus Tablet has been manufactured by Asus while the operating system is certainly among the very best.
A slight let down in Nexus tablet is the absence of support for microSD card, other than a single front facing camera.
Although both iPad and Kindle Fire do not have support for microSD card and Kindle Fire also does not have any camera, Google could’ve had a clear edge over both of them by working towards this direction. Still, even a single camera gives it an edge over Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet.
Google has also been working quite actively on its “Project Glass”, a system that combines eyeglasses with cameras and audio projection.
Recently, the demonstration of this technology was done by a team of skydivers in mid air above the convention center in San Francisco. Meanwhile, Apple has constantly been waging wars against Android devices, the most recent of which was getting the Samsung tablet banned temporarily.
However, this ruling would have little effect since the said device is soon to be replaced by an updated model. So far Apple has not faced serious competition in the market of tablets, and the 7 inch Nexus Tablet from Google shows that Google is not yet ready to directly compete with Apple.
