Google have just announced their own take on the Android tablet at their annual I/O developer conference.
Dubbed the Nexus 7, the search giant is taking direct aim at the Android tablet offering of Amazon, the Kindle Fire, with a cheap price and a content eco-system.
£159 will net you an 8GB unit, with the 16GB version coming in at £199. Both come with the aforementioned 7" IPS screen, 1GB RAM, NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, WiFi and Android Beam NFC support.
Both will also run on stock Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the latest version of the open-source mobile OS.
You can buy it from the Google Play Store, with it said to be shipping in 2-3 weeks (if you preorder, you'll get £15 of Play Store credit too).Tweet
