It has come to the fact that the tablet devices that feature screen sizes of about 7-inches and also are sold at very competitive prices are now more attractive than most of the other offers on the market today.
One of the best offers in recent tablet devices history came from Google and was manufactured by Asus and called the Nexus 7. The Tegra 3 powered device that got more variants later last year was the one that started the trend that made other manufacturer consider launching their own versions of the 7-inch tablet. Apple was also right behind Google, with the launch of the all-rumored iPad Mini that offered a close to 8-inch display lacking the Retina resolution.
According to DisplaySearch, this year it is more possible that we should see a 2nd generation Nexus 7 being announced before Apple decides to incorporate a Retina display in a new iPad Mini. “We’re seeing potential in the third quarter of panel production for a higher-resolution iPad Mini,” DisplaySearch analyst Paul Semenza told CNET today. The new Apple device could have a display made by LG and with a resolution of about 2048 x 1536. As for the new Nexus 7: “For the Google Nexus 7, we’re seeing the potential for stepping up to a 1,920 x1,200 ‘HD+’ kind of format. We’re seeing panel production possibly in the second quarter,” he said.
