Google bares Nexus 7 with HSPA+, brings down 16GB WiFi to $199

Planning to make your iPad Mini vs Nexus 7 decision much harder, Google recently bared a few interesting developments to their 7-inch Google Nexus 7 tablet.


First is a Google Nexus 7 version with HSPA+ that comes in 32GB version only. This one already comes with the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update which has a few new features on its own ““ multiple user support, 360-degree panoramic shooting mode called Photo Sphere, Google Now and Gesture Typing.

The unlocked version of the Nexus 7 with HSPA+ will retail for just $299. This is way cheaper than Apple’s iPad mini with LTE that starts at $459 for the 16GB model.

You’ve probably heard that Google already phased out the 8GB model of the Nexus 7. With this, the 16GB WiFi version now retails for $199 and Google introduced a 32GB WiFi version for only $249.

So what do you think? Is the Google Nexus 7 turning out to be your 7-inch tablet of choice?

    ayos ang 16GB WiFi… wala pang 10k for a quad-core tablet, lakas pa naman ng peso ngayon compared sa USD. sana pagdating dito nasa ganung presyo lang rin.
