nexus 7

Well it is that time already guys; the rumors for what will be released at Google IO 2013 are already flying around the interwebs.  The latest rumor comes out of Digitimes and they are claiming several new features to be built into the new generation of the Nexus 7.  To start it all off is the fact that the prices will remain the same.  The Nexus 7 was the first tablet that had a $199 price tag on it that actually had high quality components built inside of it.  The 7″ tablet was originally priced at $199-8gb, and $249-16gb.  Since then, Google has rearranged the configuration around so that the 16gb would cost $199 and the 32gb version would cost $249.  At the same time, Google also released a HSPA+ model from AT&T and T-Mobile at $299.

The difference between the first and second generation is the display, design, and the newer version of Android.  The difference in display is that it will be sporting a full HD resolution screen (most likely like the Nexus 10 display).  As for design, the bezel will be thinner and the actual device will be made with a new industrial design.  Obviously, since it is a Nexus device, it will be running the most up-to-date version of Android available (just like the original Nexus 7 and all other Nexus devices).

So are you looking forward for the next generation of Nexus devices? I know I am! Let us know what you think should be in the next Nexus 7 and what else you think will be announced at Google IO!
