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.

I don't know the pricing yet on Microsoft's slate but these specs by Google make me yawn.

Surface will be priced in the iPad range. This device from Google seems more in line with a reader first, tablet second, like the kindle fire.

I would be shocked if the Pro was in the 500-600 USD range. The RT probably, but the Pro and it's ultrabook usability, I would guess is around the 800-900 USD.

I wouldn't be surprised at $800-900 but I think it'll be a little cheaper. I really think Microsoft intends to do what their partners can't (or won't). And even if it turns out that it is $800-900, I still think it's worth that. $700 would be MUCH easier to swallow though.
