How about a July 11 launch for Google’s second generation nexus 7? Well that is what suggested by the recent leaks and FCC appearances that Google is soon to follow Motorola who is reportedly launching Moto X phone on July 11. According to the reports f IBTimes, Google would take the stage to introduce its new iPad killer-the powerful and affordable Nexus 7 on July 11.
However, CNET’s sources have contradicted the July 11 release for the Moto X phone and further disclosed that Motorola has been planning for some other secrets to be revealed at the same press event. Meanwhile, an ASUS employee leaked the specs of Nexus 7 and confirmed that it would tout a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon Pro processor clocked at 1.5GHz.
What’s more, he further hinted that Google is also expected to introduce a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera in the second-gen Nexus 7 tablet, a feature that is notably absent in the current Nexus 7. If this source is to be believed then the launch of Google Nexus 7 would be not possible before July end.

What happens when a loquacious customer service representative chats, the internal specs of one eagerly expected Nexus 7 comes out. However, the specifications provided by the same bear no confirmation; it somehow manages to unlock the secrets of new Nexus 7.
According to the leak, the new model sports a 7-inch LED display with a resolution of 1980 x 1200 which is actually a jump from the present model of 1280 x 800 screen. The CPU will be a Snapdragon from a Tegra, specifically a quad-core 600 and RAM would be chalked at 2GB, up from 1GB, and internal storage is supposed to be 32GB.

Google Nexus 7 with all its remarkable features is going head to head with all new Microsoft Surface Pro 2. The first device to run android Jelly Bean, the Nexus 7 sports a Quad-core processor and a sturdy 12-core GPU. The 7-inch HD IPS display ensures it fitting into one hand and a great portable reading device.

The new Microsoft surface pro 2 tablet runs on current Windows 8 desktop applications and integrates with the existing enterprise management infrastructure. With 10.6 inches ClearType Full HD Display, it sports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:9. This tablet comes with two 720p HD LifeCams, front- and rear-facing with TruColor. This tablet is powered by 3rd Gen Intel Core i5 Processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000 with 4GB RAM.
With more internal memory and Quad-core Intel Core i5 Processor, Surface Pro 2 seems to be more attractive than Nexus 7 however, price factor still remains a concern.… Read the rest
