New Nexus 7 Makes its Debut in UK, Germany, Spain, Japan and France

The new Nexus 7 (2013) is currently one of our favorite tablets on the market, including those that don’t run Android. It made its debut in July in the United States, and now several additional countries can get in on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean fun. The device launched today in the United Kingdom, Japan, Spain, France and Germany.

Let’s take a quick look at why it should be at the top of anyone’s buying list, no matter what country you live in. First, it offers a crisp 1,920 x 1,200-pixel display, one of the sharpest on the market among tablets of its size, and that means the tablet is a superb choice for reading books, watching movies, playing games or just surfing the Web. It also offers pretty stellar surround sound speakers, a super thin body, and easy-to-hold design and great battery life. No, it doesn’t have the fastest processor on the market, but its S4 Pro chip has offered more than enough power in our experience with the tablet.

Add in its £199 price point (£239 for the 32GB model) in the UK, and it’s easy to see why buying this tablet should be a no brainer in most cases. We expect Google will continue to roll out the tablet to additional countries in the coming weeks and months.
