In 1998, two yough men Sean Anderson and Larry Page setted up a small private enterprise called Google. 2004, Google operated 80% search requests on the web; 2005, Google purchased 5% of “America on Line” by 1 billion dollars; 2006, Google purchased the 100% Youtube by 1.65 billion dollars. 2007, Google published a new sys based Linux, called android, which is now the most popular sys for phones and tablet computers; While 2012, Google purchased the whole Motorola by 12.5 billion dollars.
In the Google I/O conference in Los Angles, Google publised its latest sy Android, 4.1, codenamed Jelly Bean. And released its first tablet entry, called Nexus 7. Today we just talk about this device.
The Nexus 7 is an Android tablet computer co-developed by Google and Asus, it used the latest Android sys Jelly Bean, and with Chrome as its default web browser. The Nexus 7 does not completely use the widescreen-optimized interface used by other Android tablets; instead using a new interface mode in Android 4.1 optimized for 7-inch tablets, which uses an interface layout closer to that of Android phones (with a vertically oriented launcher and notifications accessed from the top of the screen), but still allows apps to use the same widescreen-optimized layouts used by larger tablets.

Video formats supported:
As most other Android based tablet computer, Nexus 7 supports mp4 format as its default video format. Mp4 files are so popular that you can get movies of this format everywhere. And you can also rip DVDs to mp4 to enjoy DVDs there too.
Beside mp4 format, it also supports MKV format, this format has high quality but large size, and it’s not very common by now, so we don’t recommend this format a lot.
