Another series of Android 4.4 Kit Kat screenshots have surfaced. This time around we are looking at what is said to be Kit Kat running on a Nexus 7 2013 model.

But that is not to say there isn't anything new.
Official Nexus 7 sleeve style cases arrived in the Play Store within weeks of when the tablet was originally announced. And as of today, it looks like those who picked up the 2013 edition Nexus 7 now have another case option available.

Budget price doesn't not have to mean budget specs and dismal performance, as Google has once again proven with its 2013 model of the Nexus 7 tablet. Amazon has similarly put out its own take on the high-performance, low-price category with the 7-inch Kindle Fire HDX.

There are plenty of options to consider when it comes to using an Android tablet in a car. For many it seems a popular choice is the Nexus 7 and in fact we have been seeing these types of setups since the tablet was originally announced back in the summer of 2012.
