The first generation ASUS manufactured Nexus 7 (2012) tablet was released in July 2012 by Internet giant Google. With Apple dominating the tablet market it was clear that Google needed to do something to ensure Android stood a chance in the market place.
The original models were quickly followed by a 32gb and 3G mobile enabled version.
The outright success of the first original model led Google to follow on with a second generation Nexus 7 (2013), in July 2013. This model added a rear facing camera, higher resolution screen and more processing power.
We compare the two models here.
