If you are looking for a good review of the brand spankin’ new Google Nexus, AnandTech has put up a mini review with comparisons to the ASUS Tablet series.

The Nexus 7 comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean installed, which we’re going over on the next page. It brings improvements to UI performance through Android

Most important is the Nexus 7′s price point, which up until now has largely been one of the main issues with Android tablets – price.

Pricing for the Nexus 7 is $199 for the 8 GB model, and $249 for the 16 GB model. There aren’t any other differences between the two, nor is there a model with cellular connectivity – this is strictly WiFi only, but again, this is a tablet for the masses without the carrier hurdle.
