Google Nexus Seven sarà in vendita anche da Carphone Warehouse
Uno dei protagonisti più attesi del Keynote di ieri è stato sicuramente il Nexus Seven, tablet da sette pollici che segna l’ingresso diretto di Google nel mondo delle “tavolette”. Nato con l’intento dichiarato di essere il primo rivale del Kindle Fire, il Nexus Seven potrà essere acquistato anche presso la catena inglese Carphone Warehouse allo stesso prezzo del Google Play Store: 200£ per la versione da 16 GB. Non è ancora stata comunicata la data di arrivo negli store ma si parla di metà Luglio come ipotesi più probabile. Nell’attesa cominciano ad apparire in rete le prime recensioni e questa sera vi presento quella dei ragazzi di AndroidCentral che hanno potuto mettere mano al tablet ieri durante la prima giornata del Google I/O. La homepage è dominata dal widget “My library” e la scelta è legata alla categoria di utenti cui Google punta per le vendite di questo tablet: tutti coloro che fanno della lettura (libri, periodici e magazines) l’utilizzo principale. Dopo il break il video ed il comunicato ufficiale di Carphone Warehouse.
Google Nexus Seven will be sold to Carephone Warehouse too
One of the the most anticipated protagonists of Google keynote yesterday was definitely the Nexus Seven, seven-inch tablet that marks the direct entry of Google into the world of “plaques”. Born with the declared intention of being the first rival of Kindle Fire, the Nexus Seven will also be purchased at the English chain Carphone Warehouse at the same price of the Google Store Play: £ 200 for 16 GB version. It is not yet been notified the date of arrival in the store but we talk about mid July as most likely hypothesis. In the meantime begin to appear on the network first reviews and I present to you this evening the AndroidCentral guys one who could put their hands to the tablet yesterday during the first day of Google I/O. The homepage is dominated by the widget “My library” and the choice is due to users category that Google aims for sales of this tablet: all who that make of reading (books, periodicals and magazines), the main use. Below video and the official statement of Carphone Warehouse.
GOOGLE TAKES IT TO THE NEXUS LEVEL
Carphone Warehouse to stock new mini tablet
LONDON June 28, 2012— Yesterday Google announced its first foray into the tablet market with the launch of the compact Google Nexus.
Commenting on the launch, Graham Stapleton, Chief Commercial Officer at Carphone Warehouse, says, “Consumer demand for tablets has exploded in just over two years since the launch of the first generation iPad. The wide range of devices now available means that consumer choice and buying power is stronger than ever. Google clearly believes that there is further scope to grow the market and the competitively priced Google Nexus will serve to make tablet devices more accessible to customers.
“The meteoric rise in the popularity of tablets can be attributed to changes in the way we are using the internet, managing relationships and consuming media. Our lives are more connected and ‘always on’ than ever before. It’s all about convenience; people don’t want to have to go to a desk and sit at a computer to surf the internet, do some online shopping, chat with friends or update a Facebook status – tablet devices lend themselves perfectly to all these activities, all from the comfort of the sofa. Whilst laptops have catered to this need in the past they are slightly cumbersome and awkward; tablets offer the ideal solution and represent the direction home computing is likely to take in the future as demand for clunky home desktop PCs decreases.”
Google Nexus features a 7 inch screen, quadcore processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB memory. It will be the first (and only for the next four months) tablet to run the new Jelly Bean operating system.
The Tablet, made by Asus, will be available from Carphone Warehouse priced at £199.99 standalone or for free on a tethered contact.
