Google Nexus 7 tablet detailed

The launch is heavily rumoured to be this week, but there is still time to leak some more details on the Google Nexus 7 tablet.

The latest image and details come from Gizmodo Australia, which seems to know pretty much every detail, to the point where we're likely to just shrug our shoulders come launch day. If you can't wait for the official lowdown, read on.

Very much as previously rumoured, the Google tablet will be known as the Nexus 7, a seven-inch device built by Asus and packing a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, GeForce 12-core GPU and 1GB of RAM. It will also feature NFC and run Google Wallet (probably only in the US), with an 8GB and 16GB tablet offered when the Nexus 7 goes on sale.

Screen-wise, it will have an IPS display with a 178-degree viewing angle, running a resolution of 1280×800-pixels. The Nexus 7 will also pack a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and a battery that should be good for nine hours of use. Jelly Bean is the Android OS, but what that actually entails is perhaps the only mystery about the launch.

Pricing for the US will be $199 (8GB) and $249 (16GB). What the price will be in the UK is anyone's guess. It is unlikely to be a straight conversion.

If you want the official confirmation, check back later this week, when we'll also hopefully have the UK details for the tablet too.
