The Google Nexus 7 Tablet Drawback


The most surprising thing about the Google Nexus 7 tablet is its price. Google and Asus really undercut the competition with the $199 starting price for the 8GB version of the Nexus 7 tablet, but one thing we’d want to point your attention to is that with it you end up with a dangerous combination of very little internal storage and no microSD card option for expanding it in anyway.

It’s not even 8GB version that you will have at your hands. The system files take up a good quarter of that. Therefore, you’re only left with 5.92GB of free space for all your apps, music, games and movies.

Interestingly, Google has opted to repeatedly cut on the microSD card option, obviously trying to tie us deeper with its cloud ecosystem which wasn’t completely ready. Now, however, Andy Rubin himself admits that Google has a much more mature cloud storage system.

But with no cellular connectivity option for the Nexus 7, you can access that cloud data only when there’s Wi-Fi available. That expandable storage would have been more than welcome, but if you’re ready to make do with its absence. Tt seems that the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 for $250 will be your only choice.
