Google unveils 7-inch tablet, Nexus Seven - Chicago Sun-Times

Excerpt from Andy Ihnatko's I/O first-day impressions
"The most important feature, given the current tablet market: it’s just $199. You can preorder it today from play.google.com and it’ll ship in mid-July. It certainly alters the center of gravity. That’s the same price as the Fire. Kindle owns the mind space for e-books, but the device is regarded more as a color e-reader than a full-featured tablet. Do consumers want a cheap tablet, or an expensive reader?
And how will Apple respond? The Nexus Seven looks like a damned nice little piece of kit. This ought to fan the rumors, at least, of the 7-inch iPad that might arrive this fall. If the Nexus sells well, such a device is inevitable."
