Forum Added for the Nexus 7 (2013)
To say that the Internet has fallen in love with Google’s Nexus 7 refresh would be quite the understatement. After all, the new device is a healthy upgrade over its predecessor, packing a vastly improved screen and a faster processor in a slimmer and sleeker design.
The refresh features an IPS panel at 1080p resolution. At 7″, this equates to an impressive 323 ppi, making it the sharpest 7″ tablet currently on the market. The processor was upgraded as well, now featuring a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro running at 1.5 GHz, just like the Nexus 4.
Because of these upgrades at a still affordable price point, it’s no wonder that we received overwhelming demand to give the Nexus 7 refresh a place in our forums. Well, you asked for it, and now you’ve got it. Head over to the newly created Nexus 7 (2013) forum to get in on the discussion.

This year, cardboard returned...
