But can the Nexus 7 remain a popular choice even when Apple unveils its latest iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 in the near future? Display: While the Nexus 7 has a brilliant resolution of 1280X800 pixels, the iPad Mini’s 1024X768 pixels could barely compare with it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Vs Apple iPad Mini Vs Google Nexus 7: Should You Spend The Extra Bucks For The S-Pen?


Google Nexus 7 went on to become one of the hottest selling tablets in the 7-inch category, until Apple came out with its popular iPad Mini. This 7.9-inch offering from Apple also went on to do pretty well in the markets and both devices are among the most popular tablets currently available.

How Does The Ubuntu Phone Preview Look On The Google Nexus 7?


Just yesterday, Canonical gave us a sneak-peek into the Ubuntu Phone experience by releasing the Preview version of the OS. The actual version for tablets will hopefully come out sometime next year, so we decided to ditch the wait and play around with the Preview until then. We loaded it on the Google Nexus 7 to see how the OS would work on a tablet. Read on to know how it went. The Ubuntu installer tools and instructions work on Ubuntu terminal commands, so if you want to give this a try, get yourself an Ubuntu-based system first. But installing the Preview is quite easy.
