Part 1: a general first look
Yesterday, Google announced its firstbranded tablet, the Nexus 7, with a 7-inch diagonal, 1280×800 screen, and the latest 4.1 Android OS operating system. With a base price of US$199 for the 8GB model (or US$249 for the 16GB model), it is perfectly positioned to be a “Kindle Fire killer”… or at least for a few more weeks, since Amazon is expected to update its entire Kindle line during the month of July. This first look article will review the multiple “Nexus advantages” (known by die-hard Android fans) compared to other Android devices, and what we should know about it as content creators and consumers. Whether or not we actually end up producing any content with one, we need to understand the Nexus 7 as it shapes the market as a delivery platform.
Frequent readers of ProVideo Coalitionmagazine know that I have already published a few articles about the use of the iPad for journalism, thanks in part to the HD camera and higher performance in the 2012 model. Previously, I have complained about how much it “Hertz” me that currently the three leading iPad video apps record video with an inappropriate audio sampling rate. But that’s not the focus of this article. Ahead, I’ll point out another common flaw that currently exists in both Avid Studio for iPad and iMovie for iPad that ironically makes them more appropriate for traditional broadcast news editing than for new media.
In English, this book is available in the following:
As I write this, the English version is only in these Amazon stores. Canadians: Because Amazon.ca does not currently offer Kindle books, Amazon informs me that you can acquire this book via the USA Amazon store here. If you are in another region, you may search for ASIN number B008BI1OIU in the Amazon that handles your area, or try via one of the other close regional stores listed.
