We all know just how much of a buzz the recent announcement of the Nexus 7 made at the Google I/O conference which concluded last week. This Asus-manufactured tablet certainly turned heads, simply because it was a stunning piece of engineering, coupled with what many deem to be decent price points that would certainly add to the desirability of the tablet. After all, $199 for the entry level 8GB model is certainly sweet enough for those with enough disposable Benjamins to gun for, not to mention with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the entire experience is definitely going to be a smooth one – at least this is what Google is most probably aiming at.
Google was kind enough to place a full OS factory image of the Nexus 7, which is most probably awaited by power users more than regular consumers. After all, it is a Nexus device, which means it will be prone to a slew of customization, tweaking and hacking after being exposed. A factory image can only mean one thing – should things go awry, you can always return to a stable state and everything will eventually end up peachy keen after that. To put it in a nutshell, you can concoct your own programs and tweak around with the operating system, and if it freezes and has as much life as a 5,000 mummy, then just flash the OS factory image that comes with every fresh Nexus 7 tablet.
