Google Nexus 7: Latest Must-Have Tablet

Meet the Nexus 7, the first Android tablet sold directly by Google and the first to run Android 4.1, a.k.a. Jelly Bean. The 7-inch tablet is priced like an ebook reader but offers a lot more. Its low price, big screen, and impressive performance might give Apple's iPod Touch and low-end iPad a run for the money, too. Don't completely count out Samsung's Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 just yet, though.

Google gives new Nexus 7 owners a taste of the entertainment that's available by providing free samples. Purchasers of the tablet get some free music; single issues of magazines such as Popular Science; ebooks such as The Bourne Dominion; and the movie Transformers Dark Side of the Moon. New owners also get a $25 credit to the Google Play online store.
