“Made for what matters” – this is how the tag line goes for the spectacular Google Nexus 7 tablet. The Play Store listing shows three variants of Nexus 7 (2013) tablets lined-up for the Indian market which includes the 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi models along with a 32GB Wi-Fi + LTE model. It’s a high-specification device from a big name listed at Rs.25,999/- . The new version confusingly has the same name as predecessor, but it’s a very different beast, with improved screen, processor and a new camera, plus the latest 4.3 incarnation of Android.
