The Google Nexus 7, built by Asus, will hit hands in 3 weeks, with pre-orders already available through the Google Play Store.
Google's first tablet has a 7-inch 1280x800 HD (216 ppi) back-lit IPS display, is powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 SoC and comes in 8GB or 16GB models. Additionally, the device is the first with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is a slight update to Ice Cream Sandwich that adds a slightly "frosted" look to the OS and also adds Google's own version of Siri or S-Voice.
Additionally, the tablet has a large 4325 mAh battery for 8 hours of use, has built-in NFC, GPS and a 1.2MP front-facing camera.
The 8GB model is $199 and the 16GB model is $249. If you pre-order, Google is giving $25 in Google Play Store credit, as well. Get it here: Nexus 7
