Google takes on the Kindle Fire and iPad with the Nexus 7

Techstination feature for Monday, July 9, 2012

       Google takes on the Kindle and iPad with the Nexus 7.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Google is partnering with Asus to deliver a new 7 inch tablet loaded with features and the new Jellybean version of Android.  And with a 199 price for an 8 gigabyte version and 249 for one with double that,  there’s plenty for competitors to worry about.   Daniel Sieberg is a technologist at Google…

“It’s got a quad core processor, this 1280 by 800 display, it integrates all of the Google tools you’re used to.  Chrome,  Gmail and Google+ and Google Play.   So it’s got all of this entertainment content, but is also a fully featured Android tablet.  And for two hundred dollars we really feel like that’s a great deal for folks.”

There are lower priced tablets out there, but not with the kind of specs being included here.   There’s more info at   You can find us, with archives, interviews and more at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
