At this year's Google I/O developer conference, Google announced the Nexus 7 tablet, a direct competitor to Amazon's Kindle Fire.
The Nexus 7 is priced at $199, features a 7-inch display, 1280x800 resolution and is the only device that currently runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Google plans to start shipping the tablet in July, but you can pre-order it now from the Google Play store.
