    [Rumor] Details of the Nexus 7 Tablet Leak Ahead of Google I/O


    Supposedly, thanks to a leaked training document Gizmodo Australia was able to procure, we now know the full details on the upcoming Google Nexus tablet, the Nexus 7. According to the leaked info, the Asus-made tablet will indeed be displayed/demoed at Google I/O this week, and will come with Android 4.1, which will be Jelly Bean. Additionally, the tablet will begin hitting the retail channel in July (at least in Australia, according to the intel) and there will be two versions. One is an 8GB model that will sell for $199.99, and the other is a 16GB model that will sell for $249.99. Not only that but we also have the full spec breakdown:
    • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
    • Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor - 1.3Ghz
    • 1GB RAM
    • NFC with Google Wallet and Android Beam
    • 7-inch IPS Display (1280 by 800 pixel resolution, 216ppi)
    • 1.2 MP front facing camera
    • 9 hour battery life
    • 8GB or 16GB storage versions

    Even though the leak only reveals info on an Australian launch, it is still very likely that the tablet will be shipping out internationally on or around the same time in July. It looks like nearly all of the rumors we have picked up over the past few weeks have proven to be true. Finally, Google and the Android community will be able to compete with the iPad in a different way, by attempting to dictate pricing with dramatically cheaper competitors, instead of matching it toe-to-toe. Once Google and its partners can establish their brand presence even further, things will be looking up for all the higher-end Android tablets as well.

    No word on output ports? Or sd-card slot?

    ^This. I've no interest in a tablet that lacks an sd-card slot, regardless of how decent a price it is. After all, I'd prefer to not go completely cloudless as I am often in an area with no wifi.

    Great news! Of course, what makes the Fire such an attractive device is not only the price, but also the integrated content through Amazon. I REALLY hope the Google tab "draws some fire" at the $199 price point -- but without a content pipeline (movies, books, music) it may be a tough sell for the not-so-tech-savvy consumer.

    OK, yeah, Google Play has movies, books, and music. But which comes first to mind when you think about that digital content?...Google?...or Amazon?

    Ah you beat me to posting this! Had to go to the DMV this morning...ugh. But I'm pretty excited. This finally means a decent, cheap tablet with dev support, and it's a Nexus! I just wonder how Amazon plans to update their Kindle Fire to compete with this.

    One path for the Fire is to go "thinner and lighter" and maybe (?) better support for peripheral devices. I also wonder if they'll ever get eInk on an LCD figured out (e.g., the Notion Ink Adam?)

    I guess the price confirms that 4.1 JB will not be that big of a leap forward from ICS.
