Description: 

Powerful, portable and made for what matters to you: Now thinner, lighter, and faster — Nexus 7 brings you the perfect mix of power and portability and features a sharp 7” screen.

An amazingly sharp 7” screen: This Super High Resolution 7" tablet puts over 2.3 million pixels in the palm of your hand. With 323 pixels packed into every inch, you can read text that’s sharper than the printed page, see images more vivid than the highest quality photo magazine, and watch videos come to life in vibrant 1080p HD.

Sound that surrounds: Nexus 7 features dual stereo speakers and surround sound powered by Fraunhofer ¹ (the MP3 inventors), so you get rich and immersive audio. Hear it all more clearly with finely tuned volume boost technology that makes dialog and sound crisp and easier on the ears.

Fast and smooth: Nexus 7 is made by ASUS and packs a serious punch. With a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM, everything runs faster, and high-performance rendering ensures 3D graphics are smooth and dynamic.

Best of Google: Nexus 7 comes loaded with your favourite Google apps – like Chrome, Gmail, YouTube, Hangouts and Google Now – so you can browse, watch, share and stay connected wherever you go. And since Google apps are designed for the cloud, everything is simple and works seamlessly across your phone, tablet and computer. Now you have all the stuff you need, when you need it.

Powered by Android: Nexus 7 is the first tablet to be shipped with Android™ 4.3, the latest version of the world's most popular mobile operating system, so it's fast, fun and easy to make your own. Share your tablet with friends and family – each person has a separate customisable space, including personal home screens, wallpaper, apps, storage and more. You can also manage access to apps and content to create an experience that’s appropriate for each member of the family.

Ready to Play: Nexus 7 is great for gaming and with favourites like Prince of Persia, Asphalt 8 and Riptide GP 2, you can tilt, tap and touch your way to the top. The brand new Play Games app lets you track your achievements, play with (or against) friends and gamers around the world and discover new exciting games. And with an ever-expanding number of tablet-optimised apps like Flipboard, Expedia or The Fancy, you’ll find all the apps you love, and love the many new apps you’ll find. Sit back with the world's largest collection of eBooks, listen to streaming radio and millions of songs, and immerse yourself in thousands of movies on Google Play.

Smart, thin and gorgeous: The clean, simple design features a slim body, a thin bezel and a soft-touch, matte back. So it sits comfortably in the palm of your hand while the bright, beautiful 7" display brings your entertainment to life.

Lighter than ever, lasts longer: At just 0.64lbs, the all-new Nexus 7 is light enough to take anywhere and fits easily in bags, backpacks, and even back-pockets. With up to 9 hours of HD video playback and 10 hours of web browsing or e-reading, there's plenty of juice to get you through the day, and built-in wireless charging means you can charge, grab, and go.
