We aren't sure what possessed the Google Nexus 7 Tablet owner in the above video to start tinkering around with magnets on his new device, but his curiosity seems to have paid off. Apparently, he found a potential feature of the device that was not documented anywhere previously. The Google Nexus 7 may have a magnetic smart cover sensor built into it. If you take a magnet and put it against the front or back of the Nexus 7 along the bottom left-hand side (while in portrait mode with the display on) the device will automatically turn on. You can check out the effect in the video above. Is this a hidden feature, or something else?
