Google has unveiled a new Nexus 7 tablet manufactured by ASUS and Android 4.3 which brings restricted profiles.

Together with ASUS, we took what you loved about the original Nexus 7 and made it even better. The first thing you’ll notice is the sharpness of the screen: the 323 pixels packed into every inch of the screen makes it the world's highest-resolution 7-inch tablet. It’s lighter than ever, with more than nine hours of HD video playback and 10 hours of web browsing or reading. Nexus 7 now features stereo speakers and virtual surround sound from Fraunhofer (the inventors of the MP3 format), giving you rich and immersive audio.

Android 4.3—a sweeter Jelly Bean
Android 4.3 introduces restricted profiles, which let you limit access to apps and content. For example, restricted profiles enable parental controls, so certain family members are prevented from accessing mature content. Likewise, retail stores can use tablets to show off product information, and shops can use tablets as point of sale systems. Android 4.3 also now supports Bluetooth Smart technology, opening the door to mobile apps that connect to new devices like fitness sensors. Android 4.3 is rolling out to Nexus devices starting today.

Today we have ios 7, and lamedroid keeps coming in 2nd. Why was android 4 afraid of ios 7? Because ios 7 ate android 9? This is a sign of ipad forever.

Lol. Good luck finding apps in the play store to support that screen resolution natively.

All what you described is all the old stuff that Microsoft would say about their product but it doesn't work as smooth as Apple products do
Someone understands - July 25, 2013 at 5:58pm
Not to mention the new stuff doesn't look well or do good well either.
