SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Google is unveiling a small tablet computer
bearing its brand.
Called the Nexus Seven, the 7-inch tablet is being made by AsusTek Computer Inc. That means it's more likely to challenge
Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle Fire than Apple Inc.'s popular iPad, which
has a display that measures nearly 10 inches diagonally.
It will run the next version of Google's Android operating system, called Jelly Bean. It is also designed specifically for Google Play, the company's online store for movies, music, games, books and apps.
Google Play will now offer movies for sale, rather than only rentals.
