Nexus Q, Nexus 7: Google Puts Personal Cloud In 'Play' | Cloudline Are Nexus 7 and Nexus Q bound to sweep the personal cloud prime time? Image: Courtesy of Google Google doubled down on the consumer cloud on Wednesday at Google I/O, where it unveiled the expected Nexus 7 tablet and the unexpected Nexus Q, which connects the new Google tablet and other Android smartphones to your TV. While the Android Jelly Bean/4.1-packin’ Nexus 7 ($199) will get the immediate fanfare (as it is sure to be called an iPad a Kindle Fire killer), the $299 Nexus Q completes the personal cloud circle for Google Play, which as we noted here at Cloudline when it launched, “With Google Play, the Cloud Goes Prime Time.” Google’s Joe Britt, describing how the media-streaming Q acts as a “cloud-connected juke box,” gets to the killer device aspect of the Q: “No messy authentication or else.” Nexus Q, Nexus 7: Google Puts Personal Cloud In 'Play' | Cloudline

Nexus 7 sees "incredible demand", sells out at major retailers Introduced 3 weeks ago at Google I/O 2012, the Nexus 7 with Android JellyBean has proven to be a runaway hit. It has already sold out at brick-and-mortar stores such as Costco, GameStop, Sam's Club, Office Depot, and Staples, and is unavailable at online stores such as B&H. The 16GB model is especially hard to find. Here's a run-down: GameStop says the 16GB Nexus 7 is "Backordered". Nexus 7 sees "incredible demand", sells out at major retailers
It's an amazing feat to behold when a company makes a device so popular that it sells out in one store, much less the entirety of the USA - but that's what Google is doing with the Nexus 7. This ASUS-manufactured tablet appears very much to be capturing the imaginations - and pocketbooks - of users across the United States as well as the UK as retailers both offline and online are showing sold out signs galore. From what we understand it appears that 3rd party retailers are "frantically" attempting to get more units in stock as ASUS and Google make moves to make it all happen smoothly.

Camping? You Better Bring Your Nexus 7 [VIDEO] Camping? You Better Bring Your Nexus 7 [VIDEO] Google's Nexus 7 Android tablet is selling really well, and the company decided now would be a good time to release the first video ad for the device. The ad, titled "Camping," shows the myriad of ways in which you can use your Nexus 7 while camping — watch a movie, use it as a flashlight, play a game of chess or read a book. We see one problem with this scenario, however — the Nexus 7 is a Wi-Fi-only tablet, and some of the activities shown in the video require an internet connection.
My ZDNet colleague, James Kendrick absolutely loves his new Nexus 7. This is to be expected as James is our Mobile News columnist and is a self-professed mobile technology junkie. James and I both talk about the industry a lot together, and while we agree on many things, we have very different ways of looking at mobile tech. I tend to look at things from a very 10,000-foot, more enterprise oriented and vertical market level and James looks at things from a consumerist, in the trenches level. James gets to look at every single gadget in the industry because manufacturers rely on him for in-depth product feedback, whereas I am extremely selective about my technology because more often than not, I have to pay for it myself if I want to evaluate it.

Recommended award Undoubtedly tired of the struggle against the iPad , Google announced its own branded 7-inch tablet: the Google Nexus 7 by Asus, complete with stellar specs and a rock-bottom price. We've now been given a new and upgraded 32GB option to join the 16GB offering, with the price not raised above £199, which is hugely impressive for a quad core, Tegra 3-endowed tablet. Like other Nexus-branded devices, the Google Nexus 7 tablet isn't actually hardware manufactured by Google (as you may have noticed, thanks to the suffix). As the Mountain View company has done with Samsung, HTC and Motorola in the past, Google paired with Asus to design and manufacture this slender tablet.
