Google Redefines the Nexus 7
Google has introduced the all-new Nexus 7, which we feel, is the Nexus 7 tablet that should have been. Boasting the latest Android 4.3 update, class-leading 1920×1200 display, the new Nexus 7 is also sleeker, lighter overall. The new tablet also gets a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, Adreno 320 GPU graphics and a bigger battery. And oh, a main, rear-facing camera! More about the Nexus 7.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean debuts
Google officially released Android 4.3, an incremental update under the Jelly Bean umbrella. While we wait for the big Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie update, Google hopes we’ll be happy with some performance enhancements and feature updates. Most important – Multi-User Restricted Profiles and Open GL ES 3.0, which brings much better graphics performance. More about Android 4.3.
Sony Mobile went on record to confirm that the new Android 4.3 update will come to its range of Xperia devices including Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP and Xperia Z Ultra. No time frame has been giving though. But hey, rejoice! Read more about the announcement.
