Google’s Nexus 7 Tablet Details Leak in Full Only Days Before I/O?

Is that a picture of the Google Nexus 7 tablet that will be unveiled this week at I/O? According to Gizmodo Australia, it is. They reportedly obtained all of the details of the device through a training document and are as follows:

  • 7″ IPS display with 178 degree viewing angles (1280×800 resolution)
  • 8GB and 16GB storage options, priced at $199 and $249
  • 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)
  • NFC with Google Wallet loaded
  • 1.2MP front camera
  • 9 hours of battery life

Sound about right? It certainly matches up to the handful of leaks we had already seen a number of times over the last couple of months. I am a bit surprised to see the $199 version at 8GB instead of 16GB, but to keep the price down, they had to make a cut somewhere. With so much cloud storage floating about, that really shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Who knows, maybe Google will toss in free Google Drive storage to those that purchase this new Nexus.

We will know it all in 3 days.

    I pre-ordered my 16 gb Nex7 woohoo

    Definitely getting this tablet. Been holding out on getting a tablet cause of the price, features and maker. This seems to incorporate all that I’m looking for. Does anyone know where i con get that wallpaper?

      I want that wallpaper too.

  • Teddy Chen

    Keep my 3rd gen iPad, get the Android tablet, or wait for the Microsoft surface? So many decisions now.

    any word on bluetooth support? The one major thing lacking from the kindle fire is bluetooth. Get that on there and you can have GPS, keyboard, mouse etc.

      why do u need bluetooth for GPS?

      • http://yanminhong.blogspot.com Yan Min

        You don’t if it actually had GPS built in. Not seeing GPS on the spec sheet, so bluetooth would be a good backup as you can get BT gps units for pretty cheap. Not to mention all the other stuff BT can do like game controllers, keyboards, headsets etc.

    Could have saved $ and left the NFC and Wallet out. Lugging around a tablet to pay for things is a bit much. Just as bad as people taking photo with the iPad.

    • Bionic

      agreed, but im not hung up over it.

  • duke69111

    I’m not so sure that the 8gb is going to be sufficient. I have a kindle fire with AOKP. You do a couple of rom backups and a some titanium backups along with a game or two and your 8gbs starts to become strained.

    I am also surprised that 8 & 16 are going to be there only sizes.

    • Bionic

      i think the 8GB version is aimed at people who only want to use this tablet to read and browse the net. The “very casual” user.

  • WilliamKu

    are they really expecting ppl to whip out their 7″ tablet at the register to use google wallet? cmon now.

    • Bionic

      I could see it at air ports, but beyond that, no not really. lol

  • Stealth_Voodoo

    Any word on how thin this is? Are we talking Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE thin or Xoom/Galaxy 7″ thick?

    • Bionic

      as thin as your dickk

  • panicswhenubered

    “NFC with Google Wallet loaded” Oh good … we thought that people in line behind us at McDonald’s were looking at us funny trying to buy stuff with our phone, imagine with a 7″ tablet. haha

    • David

      Who care’s what someone else thinks?

    • Bionic

      its better than pulling out a 7 inch dickk and trying to wave that at the pinpad.

  • Liderc

    Dear lord it looks sexy.

    The NFC probably isn’t so much for tablet users, per se. Remember, the Nexus is, first and foremost, Google’s development device. Having an NFC chip on board means that developers can integrate its functionality into their applications.

    Since Google wants one application to be able to differentiate between a tablet or a phone interface, (rather than downloading a different, tablet version or phone version) it would be ideal for a developer to have a tablet with NFC, even if the NFC functionality would only make sense when using it on the phone from a consumer perspective.

    question, no troll just wondering, is there any uses right now for nfc other then wallet, me and the girl have maxx’s (no nfc as far as i know) so beaming with phones is out, i don’t think there is much wallet support up here in montana (yet, not that i would use it). So i was just wonder if there are other uses for it, or something comming out that would make it usefull to me, not that i care, im gettin one anyway.

      Besides Wallet and sharing content (webpages, apps, contact, etc) between devices, there isn’t really much. You could purchase NFC tags and program them for certain things. For instance, some people put an NFC tag in their car dock so when they place the phone in it the tag will turn on their GPS, set brightness to high, etc… Have a tag at the work desk that sets phone to vibrate, gps off, wifi on, etc… Of course, those are phone examples. I see a lot more usefulness with NFC for phones than I do tablets.

      • stupidllama

        ya i agree more useful on phones, however, i think it remains to be seen on tablet, i can image tvs with nfc, and remote apps, im looking forward to the tech, but i agree that its pretty slim on the tablet unless you have an nfc phone, for now. thanks for the reply.

  • possomcrast1

    Sounds like a kindle fire but actually good.

    • stupidllama

      this is what i was thinking, i put 4.0.4 on a fire the other day, pretty sick, but i wasn’t big on the specs, the form factor was nice, better then the nook tab, but the nook tab has better specs, runs nice on 2.3.7 (no 4 yet, i repeat yet), this looks to be the nice kindle for factor, with better specs and a low price, i think people will flock to this, anyone i know who has a fire or a nook tab the first they do is bring it to me for rooted and/or rommed for increased tablet like functionality.
