Google To Launch 3G-Enabled Nexus 7 Tablet In Six Weeks: An Effort To Play Down Upcoming iPad Mini ?

Google Nexus

Google launched its Nexus 7 Tablet in July to clinch market share of Apple’s iPad and Amazon Kindle Fire. The search engine giant introduced the device at very affordable price starting from $199 and undoubtedly, the device is having impressive features. The device was introduced with the latest Android Jelly Bean version and quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. Despite of these, the product has been lashed out by detractors due to lack of cellular connectivity, rear camera and memory card slot.

If anyone will ask me to opt one from Google Nexus 7 Tab and Lenovo’s IdeaTab, then I will definitely lean towards IdeaTab. Tough, the price of IdeaTab is little bit higher than Google Nexus, it’s no way vulnerable than Google’s 7-inch Tablet. Both the Tablets have almost same hardware specifications including screen size and quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.

A 16 GB A2109 model costs $50 more than Nexus 7 Tablet, but it features a 3 MP rear camera, a 1.3 MP front facing camera, a micro-HDMI (high definition multimedia interface port) and expendable memory up to 32 GB through a MicroSD slot. It’s pretty clear that Lenovo has included all those features which Nexus 7 Tab lacks. However, the Lenovo’s device does not have latest Jelly Bean OS, but it has Android ICS. In addition to this, Lenovo’s another 10-inch Tablet (IdeaTab S2110) has been designed for full-fledged entertainment—having resolutions of 1280 x 800 pixels– and that costs $399. And more important, the Lenovo’s Tablets offer 10 hours of battery life.

Indeed, Lenovo has endeavored to provide all those stuffs what an user requires.  I never debated whether Google Nexus 7 Tablet is weaker than Lenovo’s IdeaPad Tablets in functionality or not, but the absence of the three main features (cellular connectivity, memory card slot and megapixel rear camera) favors the Lenovo’s Tablet.

Anyway, Google has understood its weakness now and it has decided to launch 3G enabled Nexus 7 Tab in next six weeks. The search giant launched the device in July of this year, and it was considered as a potent rival of iPad and Amazon Kindle. Still, the device is one of the best Tablet in 7-inch category but, do you think that Google has taken lots of times for making the decision? Absolutely, a sequence of Tablets are going to be launched in October and that time, Google Nexus 7 could face a fierce competition from upcoming 7.85-Inch Apple’s “iPad Mini“.

Though, there could be no hardware changes in the Nexus 7 3G Tablet, but the price is likely to be expensive than Wi-Fi models. whatever it maybe, one one thing is quite clear; users will have number of options to opt in 7-inch Tablet markets by the end of this year while manufacturers will have tough time to mark their product presence.
