Remember way back when Google and Asus were said to be working on a powerful yet extremely affordable tablet? It was the greatest thing ever. What’s even better? You can finally get one.

The best part about this new tablet is the price. At only $199 for a 7-inch tablet with the raved about Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 8GB of storage, a 1280 x 720 resolution screen and 1,2 megapixel front-facing camera, this tablet is a steal for anyone who has been waiting for such a thing to emerge.

Sure, the Kindle Fire was the deal of the century, but now the Google Nexus tablet is the new deal. Better yet, it’ll receive updates straight from Google. Yes, that means you won’t need to wait six months until other manufacturers lazily get around to updating your product.

Asus was behind the manufacturing of the tablet, so you know it’s quality. Its Transformer Prime that was the first tablet to release with the new Tegra 3 processor, which was a fantastic product. But not wanting to get shown up by Google, Asus will also be coming out with a cheap tablet.

Perhaps the best part of the Nexus tablet is that it will ship with the newest version of Android to date codenamed Jellybean, which is Android 4.1 in number form. Ice Cream Sandwich was perhaps the biggest update of Android in years, and Jellybean is supposed to be even better. With increased speed, responsiveness and fluidity, Jellybean is the refined version of Ice Cream Sandwich.

Here is a list of the specs for the Nexus 7:

  • Quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 7-inch IPS display with a 1280 x 800 resolution and 216 ppi
  • Android 4.1 Jellybean
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 or 16 GB of internal storage
  • 4325 mAh battery ( around eight hours of active use)

The Kindle Fire will probably drop in price to combat the Nexus tablet, but we will wait and see.

In the meantime, get your hands on one of the most anticipated tablets of the year, and also anticipate massive delays in shipping and also get ready for the tablet to be sold out everywhere for quite some time.

I warned you!
