New high-res Google Nexus 7 up for preorder at Best Buy: $230 for 16GB, $270 for 32GB version


Today we'll be seeing the second generation of the Google Nexus 7 tablet that last year started the upward climb of Android tablets market share, and the full list of specs and the price has already leaked out.

Best Buy obviously concluded that there is no point in hiding the device anymore, so it is up for preorder, reconfirming the price rumors: $229.99 for the 16 GB versions, and $269.99 for the 32 GB variation.

Not bad at all when we consider the 1920x1200 pixels 7" screen with 300 nits of brightness, 2 GB of RAM and the quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro that is powering it. There are also a 5 MP camera on the rear and 1.2 MP front shooter, while the whole package is just 0.3" thin. The newest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is running the show, which we should see detailed at Google's event today as well.
