Last couple of months have been very important in the tech industry since two of the top companies, Microsoft and Google, announced their respective tablets and made official launch in the tablet industry. However, while Microsoft has made the hardware of its own tablet, the hardware of Google Nexus tablet was manufactured by Asus.
Google Nexus tablet is a 7 inch tablet which would come with dual core Tegra 3 processor. Besides, it would run the latest version of Android named Jelly Beans. Priced at extremely competitive $200, this tablet would certainly prove to be the closest rival of Amazon Kindle Fire. Initial reviews by the tech experts reveal this tablet as extremely snappy and smooth device. The tablet is much better compared to the first version of Kindle Fire so if Amazon wants to remain in the competition, it would need to launch the second generation version with much better specs.
While Kindle Fire did run Android as its operating system, its user interface was much different compared to almost all other Android devices in the market. Besides, Amazon’s large content based services also played their role in the success of Amazon tablet. Prior to the launch of Amazon Kindle Fire, Amazon Book Store had been established as the most reliable and most popular online retailer of books and other content. So Kindle Fire was already expected to be a success. Amazon also made a wise decision of launching the tablet on the eve of Christmas when the demand for gadgets is at its highest. However, after the initial immense success, the demand for the tablet considerably declined. But still it remains to be one of the very best Android tablets in the market.
Talking from the perspective of Google, the Nexus Tablet is certainly much better than Kindle Fire when we talk of technical specs. Besides, the brand name of Google coupled with the reasonable price would play its role in the success of this tablet. Google Play is a relatively recent innovation but it has done pretty good since its inception. Besides, Google has collected all its services at a single place in its new tablet which would certainly contribute towards the popularity of this device. By the time Google Nexus hits the market, Amazon would most probably announce the second generation version of its tablet. As for the winner of this contest, that would be known after both devices are released and tested by experts and common users.
