GOOGLE has joined the tablet wars with its Nexus 7 which it designed in ­collaboration with Asus. It is no surprise that Google chose the 7in form factor, as it is becoming increasingly popular.

The build quality is great - the Nexus is compact, lightweight and comfortable to hold.

It is one of the first devices to run on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) which has a host of new features, but we'll get to that a bit later.

The front is dominated by the slick 7in IPS display which has a resolution of 1,200 x 800-pixels. The higher resolution makes text ­legible even when they are small.

Also, the screen's colours are bright and rich with good contrast. It is even viewable under direct sunlight thanks to a handy ­outdoor mode that brightens the screen significantly.

There's also a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front for video calls. However, the Nexus doesn't have a rear camera which is strange.

The built-in speaker on the back is ­serviceable but if you want to enjoy a YouTube video or two, we recommend a pair of good headphones.
