  1. What is Google Nexus?

    The Nexus is a “pure” Google experience on a smartphone or tablet. Devices in the Nexus series do not have manufacturer or network carrier modifications to Android (such as custom graphical user interfaces), and have an unlockable bootloader to allow further development and end-user modification. Most standard smartphones or tablets do not offer the pure Google experience. The Nexus devices offer this.

  3. How often is the software upgraded on the system?

    The current version of the software on Nexus 7 and 10 is the Android Jelly version 4.2 which is the latest version of the software. Being a pure Google solution, the devices receives upgrades as soon as released by Google. In our opinion, this is the key selling point of the Nexus devices. Other tablet devices are often 2 or 3 versions of the software behind.

  4. Where is the data stored on the Nexus 7 and 10?

    The data is stored on the device directly. There is no MicroSD card slot. The Nexus device comes in two versions (16gb and 32gb) and all the data and applications need to be stored there. Whilst this may appear on the face of it to be a disadvantage, we have observed that this is more then enough data capacity for most users.

  6. What are the technical specifications like?

    The Nexus 7 is marketing leading for a 7 inch tablet. Whilst you can get all the specs from the Google website, we believe that this an excellent smaller tablet for viewing movies, reading and answering emails. It is solidly built with a good display. The Jelly bean operating system works smoothly and this combined with the high tech processing chip (NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor) means that this is a hard tablet to beat. An added benefit also being that it has a long battery life (approx 9 hours of use).

    The Nexus 10 is a real challenger to the  Apple Ipad as it contains similar specifications but is much cheaper.
