Verge score: 8.8 Verge score: 7.5

Announced at Google's 2012 I/O conference, the Nexus 7 is the first tablet to be part of the Google-produced Nexus line of Android devices and is built by Asus. It was designed to compete against other budget tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet but differentiates itself with an unmodified version of Android 4.1.

Description

The smaller version of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD has a 1280 x 800 7-inch IPS screen. Other than the different display size, the Android-based tablet features the same dual-anntena 5GHz Wi-Fi, stereo speakers, OMAP 4470 processor from Texas Instruments, HDMI, and Bluetooth connectivity as the 8.9-inch Fire HD.
