Google unveils Nexus 7 tab for $199 to challenge Apple


Google, trying to match its success in smartphones, has stepped up its challenge to Apple and Amazon in the $66.4 billion tablet market by introducing the Nexus 7, a $199 device that sports a slim 7-inch screen.

The tablet will feature Jelly Bean, Android’s latest OS, the company said at its Google I/O developers conference yesterday in San Francisco. Google also showed a spherical $299 home-entertainment device called Nexus Q, which lets users stream music and video.

Google is on the hunt for ways to fuel sales of tablets, a fast-growing market that may almost double this year to 118.9 million units, according to Gartner. Bloomberg
