Google's own tablet, the Nexus 7, just docked with the Orbiting HQ. While we have an extensive review coming soon, we thought we'd unwrap it and get a little preview of what it's all about.
The Nexus 7 comes inside a sleeve within a black covered box. If we pull off the cover, the tablet itself sits right on top, wrapped in sticky cellophane. A box underneath the tablet has spare contents: a USB-to-micro USB cord, a USB wall charger, and two small booklets with the warranty and instructions.
Initially, we felt the tablet was on the dense side; we could feel most of the weight is in the screen. The back is a slightly rubberized, dimpled plastic emblazoned with the Nexus logo, with a smaller Asus logo just above the speaker. Interestingly, the FCC certifications, which we've studied closely before on the iPhone, are only displayed on a sticker with the Nexus 7.
