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.

This tablet can easily be customized for kids and is priced more family friendly. It is going to be a serious competitor to the iPad market as parents will now get this rather than an iPad!. Especially for kids. The lack of cellular radio is actually a good thing!.
I can see Apple going into denial over this. Just wait until the holiday season when Google pushes 20 million or more of this tablet into the market. AT this price, a lot of high-end Android owners will get one just to consume the web more effectively. The battery life is decent and the screen seemed excellent and its formfactor and weight is just RIGHT. Anything 10 inches is way too bog for portability. Check out how many people leaves their iPads at home rather than bringing it out. Reason : Too big, too heavy for about town usage.

Well, RIM has already failed to do any dent in iPad sales with their $200 Playbook that's way better OS-wise than crapdroid. Expect this Google tablet follow the same sad fate, if not worse. I'd be surprised if they sell more units than Playbook
