Google Announces New Nexus 7 and ChromeCast

Google has recently announced a newer version of its Nexus 7.  Which is one of the best 7 inch tablets, available in the world today for a very good price. But the older Nexus 7 lacked some hardware features like a rear camera some wanted and the lack of screen resolution. Well now Google has fixed the problem by announcing a much sleeker tablet by skinning of few millimetres. This is due to the screen vessel becoming smaller. The resolution from 1024x768 has changed to a mind blowing 1920x1200 display with 323 PPI screen. Clearly shows Google are taking a big step up from their old devices for a much cleaner and fresh hardware. The CPU also has been changed to a 1.5ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, meaning its at least a 18% change up. The GPU is also 4 times more. The system memory has been changed from 1GB ram to 2GB ram allowing a much larger profile of background apps and faster multitasking. Other things have been introduced is the special rear camera which is 5 megapixels and an upgrade to the front camera 1.2 mega pixels. Connectivity has been upgraded to the Bluetooth 4.0, Dual Band Wi-Fi, 4G LTE and NFC. Wireless charging is also introduced to the Nexus 7 with a special dock I presume coming out on launch. For video output the new Nexus 7 will have a HDMI output. Jellybean 4.3 will come out of the box from launch and it will cost consumers to get the Nexus 7 16GB $229, 32GB $269 and 32GB+4G $349. The other thing Google also announced is a small streaming device called the Chrome Cast. This is a device that uses a HDMI connector video input for streaming YouTube videos and online content via Wi-Fi to your HD TV.  Which will cost around $35 by many retailers and online sellers. However the Nexus 7 will be launching world wide to some countries on 30th July, same with the ChromeCast.
