The Nexus 7 is available for pre-order now via Google Play for $199, and will ship in mid-July to customers in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia.
Buyers will get a $20 credit to spend in Google Play, and the tablet will come pre-loaded with the Transformers Dark of the Moon movie, the Bourne Domination book, and issues of magazines like Popular Science, Food Network, and Conde Nast Traveler, among others.
The device boasts a 1,280-by-800 HD display, and runs a Tegra 3 chipset with a quad-core CPU and 12-core GPU. "It's basically 16 cores," Android product management Hugo Barra said today at the Google I/O developer conference.
The Nexus 7 includes a front-facing camera, and "all the connectivity options you'd expect," like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. Barra promised up to nine hours of video playback on a single charge, and up to 300 hours of standby time. It weighs in at 340 grams.
