Folks, the Google Nexus 7 tablet is officially unveiled and available for pre-order starting today. Literally every facet of the device we leaked over the past couple of weeks turned out to be true as the Google crew took the stage to unveil its first Nexus branded tablet running Android 4.1 out of the box. To recap and confirm the specs, it features a 7 inch touch screen display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, 8GB of onboard storage, NFC, WiFi, Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 12-core GPU, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. There is a 16GB model available for $249, but the base 8GB model will cost $199 as it takes aim at the Amazon Kindle Fire and the iPad. The battery life is touted as 8 hours of continuous video playback, and over 300 hours of standby time. It will ship by mid-July and each purchase comes with $25 worth of credit to be used in the Google Play Store.
