In this democast, Rodney and Erin team up once again as they demonstrate two new products from Google, the Nexus 7 2013 tablet and the Chromecast media streaming dongle. They give brief impressions of each as well as comments concerning accessibility.
UUPDATE: After the recording of this DemoCast, several articles have been published regarding issues with the Nexus 7’s Multi-Touch and GPS.
