PCWorld’s Melissa J. Perenson says Google’s Nexus 7 tablet, starting at $199, resets expectations of what an inexpensive tablet can and should be, training its guns on Amazon’s same-priced but lower-quality Kindle Fire. She declares that among today’s 7-inch Android tablets, the Nexus 7 is the one to beat, and indeed is handily one of the best-executed Android tablets of any size you can buy, although you need to pony up the extra 50 bucks for the 16GB $249 version for the Nexus 7 to make a sensible purchase.
Perenson praises the Nexus 7′s high-quality look and feel, and its light weight making it possible to hold in one hand for extended periods, and its crisp, bright, contrasty 7-inch, 1280-by-800-pixel display, which is sub-Retina grade at 216 pixels per inch but clearly far ahead of other 7-inch tablets’ pixel density of 170 ppi, and its astounding 10 hours, 10 minutes battery life in PCWorld’s video playback test.
The Nexus 7 has a 1.2GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 T30L processor and 1GB of DDR3 memory making it the best performer of all 7-inch class tablets tested and competitive on some tests with the top 10.1-inch Android tablets. Perensin observes that while Google hasn’t positioned the Nexus as an iPad killer, she says it’s worth noting that the Nexus’s price is 38 less than the cost of an iPad 2, and a 50 percent saving over a third-generation iPad, summarizing that the Google Nexus 7 tablet is simply the best 7-inch tablet you can buy today.
