Google's Nexus 7 will be available in 8GB and 16GB versions

It looks as though Google was a little sloppy when it comes to protecting the assets for its upcoming Google I/O conference. An image of the company's Nexus 7 tablet was leaked ahead of schedule along with the full specs for the device.
The Nexus 7 (which measures 198.5 x 120 x 10.45 mm) is made by ASUS, comes with a 7" IPS display with a resolution of 1280x800 (216 PPI), and is powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. The Nexus 7 weighs just 12 ounces and is available in 8GB and 16GB versions. All the features that you would expect from a modern tablet are included like a 1.2MP front-facing camera, NFC, an accelerometer, GPS, Bluetooth, and 802.11n wireless.
The Nexus 7 can operate for up to 9 hours (300 hours stanby) thanks to its 4325 mAh battery.

The Nexus 7 also packs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but since that hasn't been officially announced yet, we'll provide an update to this piece when those details are revealed. In addition, pricing hasn’t been released, although we’ve been hearing $199 for the 8GB version and $249 for the 16GB version.
One bonus that is being included with each Nexus 7 purchase – for a limited time – is the inclusion of $25 in credit to use at the Google Play Store.

Not always... The Asus PCI-E wifi adapters are horrible for performance.

I do like the Asus motherboards though and owned a few monitors which were fine despite bein TN panels.

Excellent!!!! I was hoping the rumors were true. Now just need some more details about the units themselves and pricing.

They have some good engineers. Managers, maybe not so much.

I've got a Transformer Prime and Asus is a long way from nailing tablets.

Launched over six months ago and it's still very unstable, slow and has pitiful IO speeds. They keep releasing updates, which is good, but the updates seem to benefit some and make it worse for others.

I don't know whether it's down to Asus, Tegra 3 or ICS but there are other devices with Tegra 3 and ICS that don't have these issues.

I've long liked their products in other areas, notably motherboards, but I feel let down with the Prime.
