Nexus 7

We're live from Google's San Francisco event, where the company has just unveiled the successor to last year's Nexus 7 tablet — the new Nexus 7! This year's 7-inch tablet is once again made by Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS, and boasts a higher-resolution screen, faster CPU.

The 2013 Nexus 7 is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU and the display resolution has been bumped up to 1920x1200, while still fitting in a 7-inch diagonal frame. Unlike last year's model it also boasts a 5-megapixel rear camera and dual rear speakers.

In the U.S. there'll be a 4G LTE model offered, too.
