Today's juiciest piece of intel is pretty hot, yet probably isn't too surprising either. Supposedly, according to "unnamed insider sources" Google will be launching both Android 4.5 and a new Nexus 8 Android tablet in the summer of this year. This same insider shared that the next Android update will actually be 4.5, but will not be revealed at Google I/O.
It appears that Google will be waiting until July to announce the next iteration of Android and the first device to sport "Lolli-Pop" (or whatever dessert Google finally decides to call it) will be an 8-inch Nexus 8 tablet designed to compete with the iPad Mini directly.
If this is true, it would shatter the idea from previous rumors that Google plans to kill off the Nexus line. To be honest, that's not a rumor we ever bought into anyway. Of course, stranger things have happened, and Google can be hard to predict sometimes. What would you guys think of a Nexus 8 tablet?
