Normally when an employee of a major technology company reviews or even discusses one of the company’s products in public, inevitable skew means any comments have to be weighed in context. When it comes to Google’s developer advocate Tim Bray, however, we can always rely on him to be a straight shooter. Bray has written about various Google products such as Google Glass on his blog in the past, and on Tuesday night he published a quick Nexus 7 review that cuts to the chase and tells us what users should really expect. Written from the perspective of a current Nexus 7 user upgrading from last year’s model to the new version of Google’s 7-inch slate, Bray says the new enhancements to the tablet’s speed and display can be subtle at first. Upon further inspection though, Bray noted solid improvements and also said the addition of 4G LTE and mobile hotspot capabilities are also appreciated. The full review can be found on Bray’s blog, which is linked below in the source section.
