Nexus 7 has been a big success for both Google and Asus on tablet market. We start seeing iPad share market dropped with the rise of Android tablet to the market. Android tablet start seeing the sight of rising after release of Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire as well as Samsung Galaxy series tablet. $199 Nexus 7 is a powerful tablet with affordable retail price. Now, Asus is planning even more cheaper 7 inch tablet named “ME172V” and we believe it could be the next generation of Nexus 7. According to the GLBenchmark leaked information, it shall equipped with 7-inch display 1024 x 600 resolution, 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, with external microSD card slot and a 4270mAh battery.
The expandable memory storage is such important nowadays for all the full HD display media files. Nevertheless, the reduced price Nexus 7 to $99 definitely will compromise in overall performance in term of processor speed, from the previous 1.4GHz to 1GHz. We believe the degradation of processor speed will be compensated with the buttery smooth Jelly Bean OS.
For those who are aiming the budget yet good hardware tablet, existing Nexus 7 or the next gen Nexus 7 will be the best tablet for you to enjoy the love of Android.
