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.

Plastic? I would love to see a car that he calls the "Highest Quality".

I think between the new Surface, and the Ipad 3, Schmidt needs a quality lesson.

It doesnt compete with the Ipad, it competes with the Kindle Fire.

How does ANY 7" tablet compete with the iPad? I hear this crap all the time by "news" media. Are these people retarded?

Plastic doesn't mean low quality.

FWIW, many of the most expensive cars forgo metal for more high tech plastics and composites.

There's plenty of applications where I can engineer plastic to be better than most any metal for an application.
