Google watchers expect a new version of the 7-inch Nexus tablet to debut soon. Here's what it might look like.
2 of 7
The first-generation Nexus 7 has a screen with a resolution of 1280 pixels by 800 pixels at 216 pixels per inch (ppi), which is comparable to other small slates. Amazon's Kindle Fire HD 7" is also 1280 by 800 pixels; Apple's iPad Mini is 1024 by 768 pixels at 163 ppi. The next logical step is for Google to bring full HD glory to the Nexus 7. That's exactly what it plans to do, according to a January report from Digitimes, a Taiwan-based publication which is not always correct on pre-launch gadget details.
We checked with NPD DisplaySearch analyst Paul Semenza, who gave us his take via email: "We are expecting the new Nexus 7 to have a 7-inch, 1920x1200 display (323 pixels per inch); we expect panel production for this to start soon, but no product announcement has been made."
