The much awaited Google Nexus 7 with LTE connectivity is reportedly set to be released in September 2013. Japan and Italy would get the vanilla Android tablet first, giving more teeth on Google’s efforts to upend the iPad Mini dominance.

The 7-inch Nexus will try to take the task that the earlier version failed to accomplish i.e. neutralising the Mini challenge from Apple. The 7.9-inch Apple iPad is a clear cut winner in this battle with having more than 20 million of unit sales bearing its badge of honour.

Google, no doubt provides the more powerful and cheaper tablet with high-end components and at a starting price of just $200, but still the Apple iPad Mini has emerged as the better tablet as far as the global customers are concerned.

But this time, Google hopes that the 2013 Nexus story will be their way. The three main reasons why the battle winds may favour the Jelly Bean 4.3 slate this time around have been discussed below.
More powerful specs and features

From the beginning, the Apple iPad Mini was considered to be the underdog with underwhelming hardware features. But this fact was proven wrong with the iOS tablet annihilating the competition solely on its Apple pedigree and its vaunted ecosystem.

Google definitely learned a lesson from this. And now, the second Nexus 7 has been built with all the possible specs to lure away buyers from the Apple product. Some noticeable new additions include the cellular signals via superfast LTE connectivity, modest rear-camera and a display panel similar to Retina. These features were absent in the first Nexus try.

The new Nexus 7 is geared by Snapdragon’s quad-core CPU of 2.3GHz. Nexus 7 easily outmuscles the iPad Mini’s 1GHz dual-core chip.
Various Issues from Nexus 7 2 Wi-Fi have been resolved

Many of the early buyers of the Google Nexus 7 Wi-Fi edition had complains regarding some funky touchscreen functions and also the GPS problems. Google had acknowledged these issues and had vowed to fix them immediately with a firmware update.
The fix was in general successful according to Gotta Be Mobile reports which said that Google’s update patch had seemingly taken care of both the GPS and the touch screen related issues.
Although some minor hiccups still remain following the firmware update, but those are too small to dissuade the buyers from buying the gorgeous Nexus 7 device.
Pricing – Feature which really matters

The Nexus 7 LTE will hit the Google Play Store at a price of $350 with 32GB of built-in storage memory. The Apple iPad Mini with cellular connectivity and 32GB of on-board memory is listed for a price of $560 by Apple’s U.S. online store. This is more than 1.5 times to that for the Nexus 7.

For the buyers for the best tablet deal with emphasis on budget and usability, the choice seems to be pretty easy. And for paying a solid amount of money, the users gain access to a system that has gained traction on top-notch tablet computer environment. Another add-on is the solid platform support that delivers quick and easy access to the Android updates as the Nexus 7 is operated by native Google mobile OS plus the Super user privileges.
