There’s been rumours floating around for a while, but finally Google has their Nexus 7 tablet available for pre-order. Based on Google’s latest Android version, Jelly Bean, the 7″ tablet made by ASUS has a Quad Core Tegra 3 processor, a 1280 X 800 screen, 8 hour battery life, and will come in 8 and 16GB variations. Like the Kindle Fire, there are no expansion slots, with Google’s intent being for you to purchase all your digital media such as music, movies, apps and books, from the Google Play Store.
