Tech Expert Weighs in on the Popularity of the New Google Tablet
With the market for tablets and other handheld devices evolving each day, the 16GB version of Google’s new Nexus 7 Tablet was recently forced to halt orders as demand far surpassed supply. While the 8GB model is still available, what has made the 16GB Nexus 7 the current must-own gadget? Tech expert Karl Volkman of SRV Network, Inc. offers his expertise on the popular tablet.
For many consumers who already favor Android phones, purchasing a Google tablet seems like the next logical step. The feather-light 7-inch tablet, similar in size to the Kindle Fire, is smaller than the current Apple iPad and was created to work with Google Play. Google Play features the world’s largest collection of eBooks, in addition to TV shows, movies, magazines, games and apps, making the tablet ideal for those looking for a handheld device with capabilities beyond that of a standard e-reader. With a price tag of $249 (the 8GB model goes for $199), the Nexus 7 is financially feasible for many more buyers, as the iPad 2 starts at $399.
“Consumer interest for smaller tablets seems to be growing, and the 16GB Nexus 7 is an attractive and affordable option for those looking to enter the tablet market – so much so that the demand completely overwhelmed Google’s supply,” says Volkman. “It’s a good indication that more major tech companies will be focusing on smaller tablets in the upcoming months.”
