Review: Google Nexus 7 by ASUS

Nexus 7, the first tablet in the Google Nexus series produced and developed in collaboration with ASUS landed to local shelves only after a two months delay after the official launch in the States back on July 2012. The launch of Nexus 7 was not as smooth sailing as one would expect it to be. Local enthusiasts were firstly disappointed with the shipment delay. Then the announcement of the official pricing was not well received due to the price difference compared to the States. However, we are not here to dwell into the availability as well as pricing issues. We are more interested in the design and technology behind the product itself. Although Nexus 7 has been in the market for a while and there’s plenty of reviews out there as reference, we are still keen to have our hands on it. After all, we are Tech Enthusiasts who just could not resist and review offerings. Before we move on, do take note that we are reviewing the Nexus 7 ME370T, which is the WiFi version without 3G.
