Google unveils Nexus 7 tablet computer
Google has unveiled its Nexus 7 tablet computer as it heightens competition in the red-hot market for tablet computers, which is dominated by Apple's iPad.
Google said the seven-inch tablet is powered by the latest generation of Android software and weighs about as much as a paperback book.
The new tablet will be priced at less than half the cost of iPad and broadens Google's arsenal in its battle against Apple, Microsoft and others for Internet users.
Nexus tablets will be available in Australia, Canada, Britain and the US at a price of US$199 from the middle of next month.
