Google's First Tablet - NEXUS 7

Google (Nasdaq: GOOG)'s first own-brand tablet is following in the footsteps of the popular low-cost Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) Kindle Fire rather than attempting to tussle for the high-end with Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL)'s iPad.

The search giant revealed its Nexus 7 tablet at its developers' conference in San Francisco Wednesday afternoon. The tablet is made for Google by AsusTek Computer Inc. and will start at US$199 for an 8GB model.

Specifications for the tablet include:

  • Google's latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system
  • An Nvidia Corp. (Nasdaq: NVDA) Tegra 3 quad-core processor
  • A 7-inch display
  • "Android Beam" Near-Field Communication (NFC) support
  • Up to eight hours of active battery use
  • "Tons of free cloud storage"
  • Tight integration with Google apps

Here's what Google has to say about its latest hardware move:
