Google Nexus 7 Tablet Will Recommend eBooks

Today Google introduced a $199 Nexus 7 tablet. At the presentation, Google presenters highlighted the 7-inch tablet’s best qualities as eBook reading device (video embedded above)–including a new service that will recommend books for the individual tablet user.

AppNewser has more details about pricing, specs and content on the new device.

Here’s more from PC Mag: “the tablet will come pre-loaded with the Transformers Dark of the Moon movie, the Bourne Domination book, and issues of magazines like Popular Science, Food Network, and Conde Nast Traveler, among others … The tablet will include a new recommendation engine via widgets on the home screen that will serve up app, book, or movie options. If you’re not interested, just dismiss it. Google promised that the recommendations will become smarter over time, the more you watch, listen, or read.”
