    We are sharing this with you guys today because it's the hot news of the hour, but we aren't at all convinced in the authenticity of the report. Supposedly, these two included pics are of the new Google Nexus 8 tablet.

    Along with the photos, the source of this intel claims the following details for this tablet:

    • A 64-bit Qualcomm processor
    • 3GB of RAM
    • Android 4.5
    • Will debut at Google I/O on June 25

    All of these tidbits are just generic and plausible enough to easily be viable, thus, if this is a fake report, the source took the safe route and didn't go how-wild with crazy ideas. The main reason we are so skeptical of this report is that the tablet has such a huge bezel. It looks like an 8-inch tablet, yet with an inch thick bezel, the display would be no different than a Nexus 7.

    Furthermore, the other clue that this report is bologna is that the source included “exclusive leaked 100% true.” Typically, the more you try to oversell something, the less credible you become. Of course, there is a slight possibility this is true, so we included it today. To be honest, we are hoping it is fake, because that tablet is downright ugly.

    Share your thoughts...

    I'd be SHOCKED to see this have 3 gigs of ram...and of course, no SD :)

    Thought the same thing about the bezel, but assumed it was some sort of case or frame to disguise it.

    Yeah, that bezel is hideous, I hope that is either false or some sort of "disguise" for the tablet.

    The bezel needs to be this thick so that an Ent can hold it without issue.

    :D

    Lol look at the source the leak came from ... "BGR". This is the Apple biased site that doesn't even attempt to hide it's bias from the reader. I'd nver take an Android leak from them too serious.

    No one can even take Apple leaks from them seriously. They're a joke of a tech site.
