Asus Nexus 7 Google Jelly Bean tablet pictures leak

Google's first Nexus tablet is widely expected to be officially unveiled at the company's I/O conference this week dubbed the Asus Nexus 7

 

With a flurry of recent rumours suggesting Google is on the verge of releasing its first own-branded tablet device, new images have leaked of the mooted 7-inch iPad rival that is tipped to land as the Asus Nexus 7 whilst sporting a sub $200 price tag.

Following on from the company’s range of Nexus branded smartphones, built in conjunction with a manufacturing partner to launch the latest Android OS iteration, a number of rumours have suggest Google’s upcoming I/O conference will see the tech giant enter the tablet fray for the first time.

Tipped to launch the device as an Android optimised piece of hardware, the reportedly titled Asus Nexus 7 has long been a thing of rumour and speculation with previous reports suggesting the Amazon Kindle Fire competitor will boast a 7-inch form factor and the company’s upcoming Android 5.0 Jelly Bean operating system.

Claimed to be heading to market with an eye-popping 1280 x 960p resolution display, the Nexus 7, if real will mark Google’s first partnership for a Nexus themed device with previous Nexus branded handsets been launched in partnership with Samsung and LG. The Asus Nexus 7 is expected to be unveiled between June 27th and 29th.

Whilst confirmed Google Nexus tablets features are far from forthcoming, Digitimes has reported the device will land as a Wi-Fi only tablet with a front facing camera in tow. An Asus Nexus 7 price has been rumoured at $199 (£126).

Building on these reports, Gizmodo Australia has claimed to have got its mitts on a Asus Nexus 7 training document with an image of the 7-inch tablet accompanied by a selection of rumoured specs including a 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Seemingly confirming the Digitimes reports, the claimed Asus Nexus 7 training document has revealed an 8GB option will set wannabe owners back $199 whilst a 16GB offering will cost $249 (£160) at launch.

Would you be tempted by the introduction of a Google influenced Asus Nexus 7 tablet device or are you satisfied with the currently market dominating Apple iPad? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
