Asus, Google and Nvidia. Three big names in the computer and online entertainment industry. We’ll, what if these guys all got together an created something you wouldn’t want to be without, something affordable, practical and even powerful enough to not only take-on anything in the portable gaming industry but beat it hands down? Well, they have…and it’s called the Nexus 7.
The Nexus 7 is available in 8GB and 16GB editions. More than enough for your music, movies, magazines and more importantly…games! Don’t forget that everything you buy is stored in your Google account, so if you ever need to clear space you can simply re-download at a later date.
The Nexus 7 also offers a high resolution (1280 x 800) 7″ screen. This makes the Nexus 7 large enough to be an essential tablet, but still small enough to be the most powerful mobile games platform on the planet! Nvidia have got the Nexus’ back on this, equipping this new tablet with the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset. This will spoil you with a 1.2Ghz quad core CPU and a 12 core GPU! The games this baby can run, will have your jaw hitting the floor!
Add to this 1GB of RAM, 16GB of flash storage space, the latest (and superfast) Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software and £15 of FREE credit on Google Play, and you’ll soon be enjoying portable FPS games that look as good as this:
The Nexus 7 is currently the only device that can run Dead Trigger on ‘Full Graphic Quality’. Screenshots fail to do the Tegra 3 justice, so check out YouTube for some amazing vids of Nexus 7 games, such as Dead Trigger, Rip Tide GP, Glow Ball, The Dark Meadow, Major Mayhem and City of Secrets (don’t forget to look for Tegra 3 versions of these games). These games haven’t even attempted to push the mighty Tegra 3 to its limits!
Movies, Music and Magazines on the Nexus 7
Google Play will already offer a huge collection of ebooks and games for the Nexus 7, straight out of the box. But you may have heard that Google are currently still in negotiations with movie, music and magazine subscription deals. These will all be updated and expanded pretty soon and if you’re wondering how we know this, the answer is very simple: Google will make very little profit from the Nexus 7 (with build costs totalling up to 75% of the tablets retail price!) as they plan to make money back on Google Play apps, movies, music, ebooks, magazines and games.
So basically, this means Google Play is going to update, expand and kick-butt at a VERY fast pace!
