New Google Nexus 7 16GB, available soon

After many rumors and assumptions more or less credible, at last a few days ago Google has officially unveiled its tablet Economic Nexus 7, thus dispelling once and for all the mystique that surrounded him. After the hands-on offered by our American colleagues, we just have one last question: when can we buy in Europe? Nexus 7 is expected to reach store shelves as early as the end of next August or early September.
The version sold in Europe should be the “flagship”, ie with 16 GB of storage space. The price? The Google tablet will be offered to 249 euros, that is the exact equivalent of the price in dollars for the United States and, remember, the 8 GB version will be the one to 199 dollars.
As we know, however, both versions, made by Asus on behalf of the company in Mountain View, include a display IPS (In Plane Switch) 7-inch diagonal and a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, capable of producing a pixel density for thumb very high, amounting to at least 216 PPI, almost equivalent to that of some of Apple Retina display (the MacBook Pro 15-inch and 2880 x 1800 pixels, for example has a density of 220 PPI).
The tablet also has an Nvidia Tegra SoC 3, with quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor at 1.3 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.2-megapixel front camera (but no rear camera), a microUSB port and a battery of 4325 mAh which should ensure a maximum range of 9 hours, while we thought connectivity module WiFi (no 3G then), all controlled by the new operating system Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
