New Nexus 7 Expected to Arrive in Stores 20 Jul

Retailers are Expecting Shipments of the New Nexus 7 Next Week

Couple this leak with Google's press event scheduled for 24 Jul and it definitely looks like the next gen Nexus 7 is finally here.

Quote:
Shortly after pricing info for the new Nexus 7 made an appearance this morning, evidence that the revision of last year’s popular 7-inch tablet is headed to retailers as early as next week surfaced. According to documents that have leaked out of OfficeMax, the new Nexus 7 will hit stores on July 20 and be placed on display next to the old Nexus 7. Yes, these documents actually refer to them as “new” and “old,” meaning this is indeed the 2013 Nexus 7 still made by Asus.

Best Buy on Tuesday via a screenshot of their ad posted elsewhere, $230.

Don't like a large bezel? Well I guess one cannot have everything.

The thing i'm interested is battery life and weight. Amazon is rumored to be releasing a 1080p tablet this quarter. With Barnes and Noble bowing out, it looks like its only google and amazon pushing screen tech on smaller tablets.

It doesn't seem that Samsung is even trying to compete.The Galaxy Tab 3 has a microsd slot, but so does the hisense pro and the upcoming newest generation of the asus memopad, both of which have are 50$ cheaper with 720p screens.

If the leaks are to be believed, the weight is 11 oz (=312 g), so only a few grammes more than the iPad mini.

9 hours for battery life is what I have read but I forget where to tell the truth. If I find that again in my travels, I will link. Of course real world use and specific activities done varies one's mileage.

Since the page changes frequently, you may not find it there down the road.

This site has a full spec listing.
http://blog.the-ebook-reader.com/201...-for-ereading/

11.2 ounces, lighter than the previous gen nexus. Still don't know about the battery life though. I know the ipad mini bigger, but the fact that google managed to make a lightweight device with a 1080p screen makes me the doubt the claims that Apple can't make a lightweight mini with a retina screen.

So if true, it has comparable battery life to the first gen. Not bad.

Battery life was promised in the form of "9 hours of HD video playback." It will also, of course, ship with Android 4.3.

And they managed all that with a smaller battery -- 3950mAh vs 4325mAh for the 1st gen.

Hmm, that makes me wonder how much life it would get with a bigger battery. How much weight is that smaller battery really saving?
