Google is about to release its new creation, Nexus 7, a tablet running the latest version of Android. Specifically, the Nexus 7 seems to have been designed to give anyone who bought a Kindle Fire from Amazon.com Inc. or a Nook Tablet from Barnes & Noble Inc. a lethal case of buyer’s remorse.
The Nexus 7 costs $199, the same that Amazon and Barnes & Noble charge for their tablets and it can be pre-ordered for delivery in mid-July.
