ASUS and Google Announces the Launch of Nexus™ 7 Tablet
World’s first 7” quad-core tablet, featuring Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean

Kuala Lumpur (September 21st, 2012) — ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, has announced the debut of Google Nexus™ 7 in Malaysia. Nexus 7 is the first tablet in Google’s Nexus line of devices and the lead device for Android™ 4.1, Jelly Bean. Nexus 7 combines premium hardware designed by ASUS with the latest version of Android and all of the entertainment from Google Play™. Jointly developed by ASUS and Google, Nexus 7 is the world’s first 7-inch quad-core tablet which delivers the best of the Google experience in a slim, portable package that fits perfectly in the hand.

Nexus 7 comes with a NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor, meaning everything is faster – pages load quickly, gameplay is smooth and responsive, and running multiple apps is a breeze. A 12‐core GeForce® GPU delivers advanced graphics while the patented 4-PLUS-1™ CPU design gives you maximum performance when you need it and power efficiency when you don’t.

Super powerful, super portable
With a stunning 1280×800 high-definition display, Nexus 7 brings apps, games, books and movies to life. New ASUS TruVivid technology improves color clarity and brightness, while the In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel delivers crisp and detailed visuals with ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angles. Scratch-resistant Corning® FIT Glass and a textured chassis design that prevents hand slippage ensure Nexus 7 is incredibly robust and will meet the demands of consumers on the go. Delivering up to 9.5 hours of battery life in a profile that’s 10.5mm thin and 340g light, it has the portability of a paperback book, but is connected to the entire digital world of entertainment.

Inside Nexus 7 is the powerful NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, which delivers heart pounding performance and immersive mobile gaming experience. Games are enhanced by Nexus 7’s sensors, which include a gyroscope, accelerometer and NFC — as well as a responsive 10-finger multi touch screen — allowing users to tilt, touch and tap their way to the top of the leaderboards while exploring over 600,000 apps and games available in the Google Play™ Store.

Lead Device for Android 4.1, Jelly Bean
Nexus 7 is powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the latest version of the world’s most popular mobile platform. With smarter notifications that enable quick, on the fly responses, beautiful new widgets that put important information front and center, and homescreen customization that’s as easy as drag-and-drop, Android is faster and more intuitive than ever. Google’s services work best on Android, as all users’ content is instantly available and synced with the cloud after signing into their Google account, but it also seamlessly syncs content across users’ tablets, phones and PCs for a truly integrated experience.

Nexus 7 comes with all the top Google Apps —such as Gmail™, Chrome™, Google+™ and YouTube™— putting the best of Google in consumers’ hands.

Made for Google Play™
Nexus 7 was made for Google Play™. Everyone’s favorite selection of entertainment is right in their hands: the world’s largest collection of eBooks, and over 600,000 apps and games. Nexus 7 already comes preloaded with content so users can start enjoying the Nexus experience right away.
Google Play™ is the easiest way for users to enjoy their favorite content – no wires, no hassle, just pure entertainment. It’s now easy to read, listen to and watch content anywhere – on a tablet, phone, or in any browser at Consumers can forget about cables and syncing: books, apps and games are instantly available across all of their devices and on the web. It’s simple for users to buy a song on the web and instantly listen to it on their phone, or they can start reading a book on their laptop and pick up right where they left off on their tablet when they’re on the go. Nexus 7 is all about delivering the content that users love to consume.

Light and convenient protective cover
For users who seek additional protection, Nexus 7 has an optional protective smart cover. The smart cover is a tough, yet snug-fitting polymer case with a non-slip matte texture that protects Nexus 7 from bumps and scratches, and also provides additional grip. The case comes in six different colors to allow users to pick the one which best fits their lifestyle and allows Nexus 7 owners to travel with confidence.

Nexus 7 brings together ASUS’ world-class “design thinking” philosophy and the latest version of Google’s innovative Android platform to deliver the ultimate portable computing experience at an irresistible price.
