The New ASUS Nexus 7 Gen 2 Android Tablet
Asus has recently introduced the successor to the popular Nexus 7. The original Nexus 7 was a svelt, small, light, and affordable 7 inch tablet built by the technology giant Asus. The small portable tablet market is saturated with entries by many manufacturers all competing for your heard earned money. In order to be successful in this category you have to present a significant value or set of features to stand out from the crowd. The market is currently dominated by the iPad/iPad Air , iPad Mini, Samsung’s Note 7/8, and Tab series. All that changes with the new Asus Nexus 7 Gen 2.
Asus has pulled a rabbit out of its hat and brought to market an undeniably excellent product which excels over the competition in nearly every important category. I will rarely speak out strongly for a product but the Nexus 7 Gen 2 really does bring a winning combo to market. Before we get into why the Nexus 7 Gen 2 is so great lets take a look at the two varieties, its’ specifications, and some pictures.
