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 Jelly Bean. The + Mobile version adds 3G wireless to the tablet and comes alongside an upgrade to 32 GBs of storage.
