The Google Nexus 7 will be the first tablet to exclusively run Android 4.1 and operate a plethora of popular Google applications on a more manageable sized device.

While some people relish in the screen size of traditional tablets, there are few on the market that have tapped into the potential of a smaller, and more transportable version that falls between the size of a smartphone and the conventional tablet.

Gmail, YouTube, Google+ and Google Chrome come standard on the device that also boasts 1 GB of ram and 8 GB of storage. The device is slim and lightweight, making it easy to cart around while also offering an impressive eight hours of High Definition video streaming and 10 hours of web browsing or e-reading on a single charge.
