The Nexus 7 Is Google’s Answer To The Tablet Trend

Google recently revealed details about its upcoming entry into the tablet market, the Nexus 7.

Boasting Android’s latest operating system, Jelly Bean, the software promises to run faster, smoother, and more streamlined than its predecessors. The Nexus 7 will feature all the familiar Google staples, with Gmail, YouTube, and Chrome.

As the first 7” tablet, the Nexus 7 should gain a lot of attention. It features a high resolution display, a 1.8 megapixel camera, and a battery life of 8 to 10 hours, depending on usage. The table will come in two versions; 8 and 16 gig. Both will have WIFI capabilities, integrated Bluetooth, and Voice Search. And with over 600,000 apps available, they’ll be something for everyone.

For Music lovers, Google Play makes it’s easy to enjoy your iTunes library on the Nexus 7. Importing your library into Google Play gives you access to your music on any Android compatible device. With free storage space of up to 20,000 songs, you’ll never need to worry about syncing your music again.

Microsoft’s Surface Is Feature Rich, But Still A Mystery

Microsoft took center stage last week in Los Angeles, giving onlookers and web-viewers a glimpse of their new tablet.

Surface showcased features that many believe the developers at Apple have long overlooked. A built in kick stand, an integrated keyboard, flash card slots, and USB ports are just a few. Microsoft presented plans for two versions of the new tablet, but both will boast HD screens, lightweight portability, and a new magnesium alloy body developed by the software magnate. While many details about the upcoming release were left to the spectators imagination, all in attendance were left asking the same question: when will it be released?
For now, that question has yet to be answered.

For all the available details about Surface, watch this week’s Sweet Tip video. If you have any questions about the new tablet, send us an email at sweettips@compren.com. Make sure you ask about our weekly specials and the computer repair services available in your area.
