Google announces Nexus 7 tablet computer

Help

Google has unveiled the Nexus 7 - its first own-brand tablet.

The device is made by the Taiwanese company Asus rather than the firm's own Motorola hardware unit.

An 8GB version will be sold for $199 (£127) from mid-July pitching it directly against Amazon's Kindle Fire. It will run the new Jelly Bean version of Android.
