Email

While there's nothing very new or notable about the email applications on the Google Nexus 7, that's not a bad thing by any stretch of the imagination. If you'd like, you can still link your POP/IMAP/Exchange or Gmail accounts to the tablet, and access your inboxes. You can also compose, send, edit, and attach files to your email much like you would on a regular computer.

Web Browsing

For the first time ever, a tablet was shipped with Google's Chrome browser as the default web-surfing application, allowing users to sync tabs across multiple machines, use several tabs and windows, and perform all of the same basic functions on the tablet. While it forsakes some of the more radical features of Ice Cream Sandwich's browser, Chrome is polished and ready to shine on the Google Nexus 7.
