    Nexus 7 Tablet Benchmarked; No Slouch - Can Even Outperform Some of the Big Boys!


    Get ready to be impressed. It would be natural to assume that a sub $200 dollar tablet might not be a killer when it comes to performance, but you would be mistaken. Of course, we already know that the new Google Nexus 7 tablet is running a version of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core chip and that its GPU has 12 Cores, so we shouldn't expect it to be a slouch, even if it is clocked slightly lower than some other Tegra 3 devices. Still, by looking at these preliminary benchmarks, your $200 bucks will go along way toward one of the most powerful tablets on the market. As you can see in the chart above, the little Google tablet even trumps the $500 dollar Asus Transformer Pad Infinity in most benchmarks!

    Who would have thought that one of the best multimedia and gaming tablets to hit the market would also be so incredibly affordable! Who wants one now?

    The guys (and girls) at The Verge reviewed the Nexus 7 today, and the conclusion of their review stated that the last time they were this thrilled with a tablet, it was when they first tried an iPad. They gave it a score of 8.8.

    Not a bad review!

    Yes-- me too. I was seriously considering one of these as an MP3 player (plus other useful things). But not if there's no expandable memory. One of several reasons why I won't get crApple stuff.
    TF101 B70 series, USA running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, rooted. 64gb microSDXC, keyboard dock with 32gb microSDHC in an adapter
    Dell Streak 7 running Honeycomb 3.2, rooted. 64gb SDXC. Mainly used as a music player.
    Virgin Mobile Optimus Slider, rooted -- frequently used as WiFi hotspot. 16gb microSDHC.

    why no camera on the back? Also a deal breaker for me.

    It seems that google confirms that USB on the go data transfers does not work, A root seems to be needed and a app called "stick-mount" to load the driver required. After that a flash drive can be mounted. I don't know enough to explain how it works

    B60 TF101 16gb WW version. Never rooted.

    I don't think this will be the top-end Android tablet...but it could be an excellent gateway device. It sounds like it's intended more for pure media consumption, and the UI might be simplified a bit. Lack of USB hosting or expandable memory may prevent it from being used by more technical users.....but at the price point it's listed at, it could be a great way to get people into the Android environment, and get more consumers purchasing Android tablets, apps, etc.....which could give developers more reason to build apps, which would give people more reason to buy OTHER Android tablets etc.

    I guess I'm one of those people that wants it all. I want a reasonably priced high performance tab with full expandability. I want no less than 16GB internal memory, HDMI out, Bluetooth, USB host, at least micro-usb expansion, and at least a front-facing camera for around $200. Is that too much to ask? Apparently. I was excited about the Nexus because it seemed like Google was listening to the consumers. However, they got it wrong like so many others. Sounds like Acer is really close though.

    I suspect that if they could do it, and deliver it for $200, they would have. Likely they put as much as they could in there. I'm sure Google's not leaving features out just so they can lose sales.
