At $199.99 for the 8GB model, we think this device is priced right. If you need more space you can pick up the 16GB model for $249.99. Early purchasers get a $25  credit to use for apps, music, and movies in the Google Play Store to help load up your new tablet with some goodies.

Let’s take a look at some of the specifications and features of the new Google Nexus tablet:

You might have noticed in the specs that it runs the latest version of Android, the newly announced 4.1 Jellybean. While I always shudder at Google’s Android naming scheme, I was extremely impressed with the new Jellybean announcement today.
