Google Nexus 7 Tablet: 10 Coolest Features

Compass Mode For Business Photos
Android's Compass Mode, the ability to view panoramic views of street-level photographs, has been around for a while. The same goes for Google Maps' Business Photos feature, which shows 360-degree scenes inside local businesses. But Nexus 7 melds the two into something truly interesting. Its new Compass Mode for Business Photos feature uses the tablet's gyroscope to make the process more intuitive: To look around a business, you turn the tablet rather than tap onscreen controls.
