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 Google.com/play. You can find us, with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
