As rumoured, Google’s going to announce a 7-inch, Nexus-branded tablet called the Nexus 7. According to the leak, it’s built by Asus, with a 1.3Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, GeForce 12-core GPU and 1GB of RAM with two different storage variants: 8GB and 16GB. The 8GB model will set you back $US199 and the 16GB will cost $US249, both are much cheaper than iPad's cheapest price tag.
The tablet is said to go on sale next month, no words on if it will be available in Australia
