Nexus 7 2 to be released at end of August

The UK release date, which comes a month after the gadget was launched in the US, was previously rumoured to be some time in early September.
The gadget will be available from high-street retailers as well as the online Google Play store, according to manufacturer Asus. Anticipated demand has led some stores to suggest they will begin selling it at midnight on 27 August.
The relase date means the Nexus 7 2 is likely to arrive on shelves ahead of the new versions of the iPad mini and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, its potential competitors in the Christmas 2013 market.
The Nexus 7 2 is expected to cost £199.99 for the 16GB model and £239.99 for the 32GB version

The device features wireless charging, 4G connectivity, a screen that offers 323 pixels per inch, and is thinner and lighter than its predecessor.
Google claimed the screen made it the world’s highest resolution tablet, comparing favourably to the iPad’s Retina Display, which offers 264PPI. Both models offer higher resolutions than most users can perceive.
The company said it could offer up to 10 hours of battery life, and that its 1.5GHz processor was 80 per cent faster than the original model. Memory has been doubled to 2GB, and it also features wirless charging, the latest version of Bluetooth for compatibility with wearable technologies such as watches, and NFC.
The 144x200x9.15mm tablet is lighter than its predecessor, at 299g with Wi-fi and 310g with 4G LTE. The 1920 x 1200 HD display also comes with 5MP rear and 1.2MP front cameras, as well as dual stereo speakers.
The device will also be the first to feature the new version of Android, 4.3, which includes individual users profiles, which can be restricted so that, for instance, children cannot see in-app purchasing options that could land their parents with huge bills
