Google Nexus 7 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), Amazon Kindle Fire specs comparison
So, here we are, still all hyped up after the Google Nexus 7 announcement. It seems like a pretty neat, little slate, don't you think? With a modern, quad-core processor, display with decent resolution, and the latest Android version to date, it surely has what it takes to grab the attention of geeks throughout the globe, especially when you can get one for $199. 

But given the device's price point, there is a couple of contenders that we have to take into account. We are talking about the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the Amazon Kindle Fire - tablets of identical size that cost about $200 and $250 respectively.

Are they any better than the Google Nexus 7? Well, at least on paper they aren't too much of a threat to Google's tablet. That is, unless you absolutely need cellular connectivity - a feature that you can get on the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), or you have a soft spot for Amazon's content ecosystem. Of course, the hard truth will be known once we get our hands on a Google Nexus 7 and put it through its paces, but it will be a few weeks before that happens. Until then, let us take a look at its specs and see how they compare to those of the two aforementioned, similarly priced tablets.
