Nexus 7 up for pre-order at Best Buy

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Pictures and full spec

The wait is over, at least for US based Nexus 7 lovers. The next generation Nexus 7 is listed for pre-order in 16GB and 32GB versions. Both tablets are black and the16GB unit will cost $229.99 + local tax, while the 32GB version would set you back $269.99 + tax.

Best Buy went one step further and listed the tablet’s full specification, once again confirming the looks, Android 4.3, 7-inch screen with IPS technology, 300 cd/m² brightness, 178° viewing angles and 1920 x 1200 resolution, giving us even more sharpness than a Retina iPad. Best Buy also revealed that the CPU inside is the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 8064, with a 2MB L2 cache and a clock of 1.5GHz. The graphics inside of the chip is the aged Adreno 320 that will do just fine, but it is not the best mobile GPU around.

The tablet has 2GB DDR3LP memory as well as 16 or 32GB storage, 5-megapixel rear facing and 1.2-megapixel front facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11n wireless. The new Nexus 7 weighs 11.2 Oz (317.5 grams) and has measures 0.3 inches (7.6 mm) at the waist. It stands 7.9 inches (20 cm) tall and it’s 

4.5 inches (11.43 cm) wide. The old Nexus is slightly heavier at 12 ounces (340 grams) , significantly thicker at 10.45 mm and a bit shorter. It measures 198.5 x 120 x 10.45 mm (7.83 x 0.39 x 4.72 inches).

The model name NEXUS7-ASUS-2B16 confirms that Asus is still the maker behind this tablet but Asus brand is gone from the back side. It is simply called Nexus, and the logo is printed in large, friendly letters, but it’s vertical now, not horizontal like on the old Nexus.

Before we finished this article Best Buy removed the 32GB model but just in case we took a screenshot of 16GB model listed.

You can preorder the 16GB version here.
