Hot on the heel of Microsoft’s Surface reveal, Google has gone and debuted the Nexus 7 tablet. The mobile device will be running the ridiculously named “Jellybean,” or Android 4.1 Operating System, and will come in an 8 GB model ($199) and a 16 GB model ($249.99).
Why should you care? Check out this video of the device playing Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 (among other things):
Interestingly, the Nexus 7 won’t just be playing your traditional downloadable and mobile titles. Famitsu has confirmed that some games that used to be PS Vita exclusives will be coming to Google’s tablet and other “NVIDIA Tegra 3 devices.” Among the Vita titles confirmed are Sumioni: Demon Arts (read our review right here) and Orgarhythm, which you may remember from my list of most anticipated PS Vita games.
Is this just more bad news for the Vita, or a sign that all dedicated gaming handhelds will be made obsolete by tablets and smartphones? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
