ASUS Announces Arrival of Google Nexus 7 to Malaysia
ASUS recently announced the Malaysian debut of the Google Nexus 7, the first tablet in Google’s Nexus line of devices. Jointly developed by ASUS and Google, the Nexus 7 combines premium hardware designed by ASUS with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, as well as all of the entertainment from Google Play. The world’s first 7-inch quad-core tablet, it delivers the best of the Google experience in a slim, portable package that fits perfectly in the hand.
Loaded with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the Nexus 7 is built for a smoother, responsive experience, whether you are gaming, browsing the Internet or just multitasking between apps. A 12-core GeForce GPU delivers advanced graphics, while the patented 4-PLUS-1 CPU design gives users maximum performance and power efficiency in a profile that’s only 10.5mm thin and 340g light.
Thanks to a stunning 1280x800 high-definition display, which combines new ASUS TruVivid technology with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, enjoying your favorite apps, games, books and movies has never been better with crisper, more detailed visuals. The robust, scratch-resistant Corning FIT Glass and textured chassis design meets the demands of consumers on the go, while 9.5 hours of battery life ensures that you will stay connected to the digital world longer.
As the lead device for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Nexus 7 also offers users smarter notifications with quick, on-the-fly responses, beautiful new widgets and better drop-and-drag homescreen customization. More intuitive to use, Android 4.1 is also made better with Google Play, which puts the world’s largest collection of eBooks and over 600,000 apps and games in the hands of users.
Beyond the tablet, there is also an optional smart cover, which users can opt for to protect the Nexus 7 from bumps and scratches. A tough, yet snug-fitting polymer case with a non-slip matte texture that provides additional grip, it is available in six colors for users to choose from. Both the device and the covers are now available at all major retailers, priced at RM999 for a 16GB unit.
