Google-Nexus-7-For-GamingIn 2013 the tablet market has been subject to a rise in standards like few other areas of consumer technology. This is good news for mobile gamers demanding big processors, high pixel density and good sound - the attributes that really bring a game to life.

The Google Nexus 7 (2nd generation) has been one of the most critically acclaimed pieces of technology of 2013, and its presence at the forefront of the ‘small tablet’ market will continue well into 2014.

The Nexus 7 2 is applauded largely because of its phenomenal pixel density, giving the best Android games incredible clarity. At 323ppi it stands head and shoulders above many of its rivals. Of course with more pixels, there’s more demand on the processor but running on a quad core 1.5GHz with 2GB RAM means there’s no lag and games load up nearly instantly.

Physics games, platformers, swipe and scroll arcade games, and all of those online casino favourites will run perfectly on the latest Nexus 7.

Any gamer will have to consider which app store they prefer, whether it be Google Play for Android, iTunes for iOS, or Windows, and many may instantly opt for the Apple devices due to their cutting edge games. Some of the online casino sites may only work with a certain system.  

The iPad Air is generally considered the best tablet on the market and the new iPad Mini is also an excellent piece of technology. The prices may not be as affordable as the Nexus 7 2, but their cutting edge performance and build quality might justify the bill in the eyes of many gamers.

The latest Kindle Fire HDX looks set to take the market by storm. With 323ppi, a 2.2GHz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM, the HDX could well become the nearest rival to the Nexus 7 in terms of gaming. Casino games will run with ease and graphically challenging arcade games will be in their element.
