San Francisco - AFP

Google on Wednesday unveiled its own branded Nexus 7 tablet computer designed to challenge Apple\'s iPad and be a window into its online shop for books, movies, TV shows and more. The new tablet will be priced at less than half the cost of the market-leading iPad and broadens Google\'s arsenal in its battle against Apple, Microsoft and others for Internet users. The seven-inch tablet powered by the latest generation of Android software is being made for Google by Taiwan-based Asus and weighs about as much as a paperback book, according to Android team head Hugo Barra. \"We wanted to design a best-of Google experience optimized around the content available at Google Play,\" Barra said during a presentation opening the Internet titan\'s annual developers conference in San Francisco. Nexus tablets were available for order in Australia, Canada, Britain, and the United States at the Google Play store at a price of $199 and would begin shipping in mid-July, Barra said. The tablets come with a $25 coupon for Google Play content -- Google\'s answer to Amazon and Apple\'s iTunes store for books, music, magazines and other content. \"It has always been a goal of the Nexus program to provide you with the best-of Google experience the way Google envisions it,\" Barra said. Google also Introduced an Android-powered Nexus Q device for wirelessly streaming films or music to televisions or speakers. Along with the new hardware, Google said it is beefing up its Google Play store to offer more entertainment. \"Google Play is your digital entertainment destination, with more than 600,000 apps and games plus music, movies and books,\" a Google blog post said. \"It\'s entirely cloud-based, which means all of your content is always available across all of your devices.\" In addition to movie rentals, Google will be offering films for sale. \"You can watch as much as you like. You can also purchase episodes of your favorite TV shows,\" the California tech giant said. Google Play will also be adding digital magazines from Hearst, Conde Nast and other publishers. The company described Nexus 7 as \"a powerful new tablet\" which \"makes everything, including games, extremely fast.\" It weighs 340 grams (12 ounces) and has a front-facing camera. Android platform developer Chris Yerga said Nexus 7 is also \"a serious gaming device.\" Google at the same time said it was releasing a new version of its Android software for mobile devices, called \"Jelly Bean,\" which \"builds on top of Ice Cream Sandwich,\" the current iteration of Android. \"It makes everything smoother, faster and more fluid,\" the Google blog said. \"The keyboard is smarter and more accurate, and can predict your next word. And voice typing is faster, working even when you don\'t have a data connection.\" While Android has leapt to the top of the mobile phone market, Apple remains dominant in tablets, holding around 62 percent of the market to 36 percent for Android, according to research firm IDC. The news from Google comes just a week after Microsoft took on Apple with a plan to release its own branded tablet called Surface later this year.
