Forum Added for Nexus 7 and Nexus Q
With a fantastically low price point of $199 and $249, today Google unveiled the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered Nexus 7 tablet. It’s made by Asus, and it contains a Tegra 3 quad core CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 7″ 1280×800 display, and your choice of 8GB or 16GB of storage. The Nexus 7 is up for pre-order today and it ships mid next month. Since we know a lot of you will have your eye this new tablet, we wanted to go ahead and add a new forum.
Also new is the Nexus Q, which Google defines as the first social-streaming media player. Essentially, it connects to a television and/or speakers and lets you remotely control Google Play content on your various multimedia devices. It’s available for pre-order now for $299 and will ship in mid-July. It runs Android and is thus going to be modifiable, so we added a forum for that too!
