Yesterday Google announced the successor of the best Android tablet on the market: a revised version of the Nexus 7. I own the current (old?) version, so I was curious to compare the specs of both trying to understand if it could worth the upgrade.
My Nexus 7 is the 32GB 3G version, for my needs a tablet should have it’s own independent internet connection, so I will compare the LTE-equipped one.

There are some interesting new features as well, like NFC technology, wireless charging, a rear-camera and HDMI port.
The real question is, do I need to upgrade my tablet? Could I surf web faster, play games better, read news more comfortable with this shiny new gadget?
Maybe yes, but do I need it? Maybe no.
