Google launched the second variant of Asus Nexus 7, a hit of its time,  the Nexus refresh, some even are calling it Nexus II 7" (not sure which one is correct).  So far, the oral specs go like 
this: Snapdragon S4 Quad-core processor running at a clock speed of 1.5GHz and a 2GB of RAM on the top of it. 

Display size hasn't been changed, i.e 7" with a poppy 'n' creamy resolution of 1920*1200 pixels leaving a pixel density of  ~320 ppi. (the resolution on the benchmarks is 1824*1200 because of the onscreen buttons cover the remaining area

The tab is going to run on the upgraded 4.3 JellyBean version of Android, which promises to have exclusive improvements, including Bluetooth 4 LE allowing the battery to drain slower, as it lefts almost zero footprints of Bluetooth being turned on. Also, the overall RAM usage will be less(30 percent lesser than before), they say.

The AnTuTu benchmark I am showing is the same which Android Police revealed with their hands-on with this charm. [I haven't tested this product yet]. Nexus II 7 scores 18,000, which according to me will be great for a general tablet user.

have techie and geeky day ahead readers.

Lumia 625, expected to be released in the month of September' 13 is said to be coming out with LTE (4G) with Cat3 and speeds upto 50 Mbps UL, 100 Mbps DL (correct me if I am wrong). It will sport a 4.7" IPD LCD capacitive display on the front panel with a resolution of 480*800p (~199ppi) and a Corning Gorilla Glass II protection.

For the storage thing, it has been given an 8 GB inbuilt storing capacity and expandable (microSD) external capacity upto 64 GB. On the back side, a 5MP Autofocus camera with LED flash on the top of it, and video recording capabilities such as 1080p HD recording at 30 fps. The secondary camera will be likely to be VGA.

Talking about the platform i.e the OS, Lumia 625 will be running on the Windows Phone 8, sporting a Qualcomm MSM8930 Snapdragon chipset with a Krait 1.2 GHz Dual Core processor and Adreno 305 graphic unit with 512 MB RAM over it, hopefully will run everything smoothly. Battery will be likely to be Li-ion 2000 mAh (BP-4GWA) and yeah, if you are going to buy this, you will need to short out your SIM into Micro-SIM.
