The 7-inch Tesco Hudl tablet (yes, a tablet from the supermarket chain) is decent enough with a quad-core processor. It is very light to carry, however, not so good as far as the camera is concerned.

This tablet bridges the gap between a tablet and a laptop perfectly. It has a large screen, Qwerty keypad and Windows 8 OS. It is slightly heavy though and average on screen resolution

Google Nexus 5 ; Akin to Google Nexus 4, Nothing Fresh On The Table?

Google recently released its update of the Asus made Google Nexus 7 tablet which is called the Nexus 7.2 fuelling rumours that the new Nexus smart phone will be the Nexus 4.2 not the Nexus 5.

The Google Nexus 4 was a very well received device not just because of it great features and specification but also because of its very competitive price. If Google decides to make an update of the device with better features and specification like it did with the Google Nexus 7 and Nexus 7.2 it is easy to imagine that Google will have another winner on its hands – especially if Google decides to release the device with its rumoured new OS the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. An insider by the name of Taylor Wimbley has recently confirmed that Motorola will be making the new Nexus device. His post gave no other name to the device adding to the rumours that it won’t be the Nexus 5, rather the Nexus 4.2.

Google has been mum on all of these rumours and has not confirmed that Motorola will be making the new Nexus device.… Read the rest

All That Glitters is Not The New Google Nexus 7: Might Not Be The Deal Breaker!

A question mark hangs over the fate of Google’s upcoming Nexus 7 2, just as anticipation builds up regarding its launch in the market.

Considering the leaked rumors surrounding the device, the Nexus 7 2 might not be a breakthrough tab that users would love to splurge on.

Coming in competition with Apple’s iPad Mini and iPad Mini 2, Google will have to roll out the Nexus 7 2 with powerful specifications to make its device outshine the former.

Running a 1.5GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, the Nexus 7 2 is expected to hold 2GB of RAM with in-built storage of up to 32GB. The device is expected to come in 16GB and 32GB variants so the storage space is limited. Its rivals such as Apple offer 64GB of storage space in iPad Mini and 128GB in the iPad.

This 7-inch tab will roll out with a 1,980 x 1,200 display and a 5-megapixel camera at the rear with 1.2-megapixel at the front, which might be a disappointment for those who have a better camera quality in their smartphones.

Considering the software, Google was expected to house the latest Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie but we hear, the Nexus 7 2 will hold Android 4.3 Jelly Bean instead, which is just a minor update.

It seems like Google is following the same tradition of not including a microSD card slot in the device, which is missing in the existing Nexus 7 as well. The device is also rumored to sport the same design as its predecessor; the Nexus 7.

In anticipation of the upcoming Google Nexus 7 2 coming out in Q3, Google Play Store has put up its predecessor, the Google Nexus 7 at a discounted rate of $200 for the 16GB Wi-Fi variant and $250 for the 32GB Wi-Fi version.

The forthcoming Nexus 7 2 is expected to roll out with a price tag of somewhat in between $199 and $249 for the Wi-Fi model.

Speculated to sport the Snapdragon 600 processor, the impending 7-inch Nexus tablet will house a 5-megapixel camera at the rear and a 1.2-megapixel camera at the front. With a resolution of 1,980 x 1,200 pixels, the tab’s display might look a little washed out.

The Nexus 7 2 is likely to hit the market in the first week of August.

Reports indicate that the Nexus 7 2 will come out with certain issues fixed that users reported in the previous Nexus 7 tab.

The discount comes in a limited-period offer and is spreading fast. So go, grab a version as we hear Google Play Store will have the offer open the entire week. The offer is also open at Staples store.

A Welcome Attempt for The Next Version? Nexus 7 Put Up At Huge Discounts At Staples!

Available in a limited period offer until July 13th, Staples has displayed the 16GB and 32GB variants of the Nexus 7 at a discounted rate of $179 and $199.

The discounts seem to be an attempt to make way for the arrival of the second-generation Google Nexus 7 tablet.

The current Nexus 7 was announced in June 2012 and released in July. A year later, Staples is hoping to clear out the stock in anticipation of the next version.

However, the move might be an attempt by Staples to attract more customers. Nevertheless, the discounts are attractive, considering the cost of devices at Google Play Store that’s $199.99 for 16GB and $249.99 for 32GB.

The deal is also open at Staples online store. Interestingly for those who got a Discover card, Staples is offering further 5 percent off at the devices due to its ShopDiscover service.… Read the rest
