LG is preparing to release their new G Pad 8.3 Android tablet with a nice 1920×1200 resolution, of course Google’s new 1920×1080 Nexus 7 has been out for a while now and Apple’s iPad Mini is looking absolutely outdated. Both resolutions on the Android tablets are are very nice, but how about screen area and actual PPI: Manufacturer and model name Year introduced Screen size Screen area Resolution Ratio PPI Google Nexus 7 (2013) 2013 7″ 20.94 square inches (6.1″x3.4″)

Yesterday while stopping into Best Buy I was surprised to see a new Nexus 7 in the tablet section. After playing with the device for a while I came away unimpressed. It is a solid device 🙂 but the screen was not as overwhelmingly good as I expected 🙁 Perhaps the biggest problem for me was that my Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s display actually seemed brighter and it was also not that much smaller than the Nexus7: Google Nexus 7 (2013) 2013
When connecting Nexus 7 to Lenovo X220* laptop via USB: I get about 3-4MBs when writing to the Nexus 7. The files being written were large video files, smaller file transfer (like music/mp3s files) copied at about 2-3MBs… I get closer to 7-8MBs when copying from the Nexus 7 to the laptop. NOTE: The X220 was running Windows 7 in these tests.
