Adventure Tech: Google Nexus 7 Tablet

Tablets are all the rage these days, although most of them haven’t been able to come close to performing nearly as well as the iPad. That could change down the line as Microsoft introduces its Surface tabletΒ  in a few months, but for now the only thing that comes close is the new Nexus 7 from Google. It runs the latest version of Android (code named: Ice Cream Sandwich), is lightweight, durable, provides great performance and is priced right. It seems like a fantastic device for travel, even if you’re headed to the most remote places.

Yesterday Google released their first commercial for the Nexus 7 and I felt it was just too fun not to share. It shows a father and son who go on a camping trip and take their shiny new tablet along for the trip with them. It does a great job of showing off everything that this technology can bring to the table for travelers and adventurers alike.
