Google's Nexus 7 is getting older. And unsurprisingly, rumors suggest it will get replaced this year by a brand new high-end Nexus 8. Until that day arrives, the Nexus 7 will remain one of the best tablets on the market and a solid iPad mini competitor thanks to its specs and price.
Google's tablet comes with a sleek black matte design that is much improved over the original Nexus 7's form factor. It also comes with a speedy quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a rear camera, and Android 4.4 KitKat, Google's latest version of Android. It also sports 4G LTE data for AT&T, T-Mobile and also Verizon Wireless, the nation's largest 4G LTE service provider.
The Nexus 7 is also cheaper than the $299 iPad mini which means that it's worth a look from those that aren't in love with iOS and don't want to shell out tons of cash this month.
