The Nexus 7 was the first 7-inch tablet to emerge from the partnership between Asus and Google and came to the market in 2012. It was received very successfully, which was above all due to the low price. It was released with Android 4.1 and runs on a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz. The Nexus 7 comes with 1 GB memory and a battery time of around 10 hours. The original Nexus 7 was sold in the Google Play Store, but could also be purchased at retail outlets. It was succeeded by the equally popular Nexus 7 (2013).
