    New Nexus. I think there are some hidden features for 4.3 they didnt leak. Maybe the Hangouts Emoji have made it system wide?

  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 4:11:33 PM

  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 4:14:02 PM
    One thing that's nice about the Nexus 7 is that it *is* really affordable and that rubberized back cover is good to hold for a long time.
  • seth.rosenblatt 7/24/2013 4:14:08 PM
    "The Nexus 7 has been a big hit"

    The new Nexus 7 looks a lot like the old Nexus 7, surprise, surprise!

    Almost 2mm thinner than the original
  • Jessica Dolcourt 7/24/2013 4:14:55 PM
    I do like that Asus is keeping it as a 7-inch device. Bigger isn't always better.
