Google isn’t good with keeping things a secret. Earlier it was the Nexus 5 which was revealed in a video released by the company, being used by a Google employee himself, and now it seems like Google has unofficially unveiled an upcoming 8-inch tablet – Nexus 8.
On the Android website itself there’s a promotional photo that the company has used which features a lady using a tablet. The tablet in the photo doesn’t quite look like either of the Nexus 7 tablets, and it looks pretty smaller than the Nexus 10. This has sparked off speculations that Google might be working on an 8-inch tablet which is most likely to be called Nexus 8, going by the company’s current naming scheme.
So far we’ve seen Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 in the smartphone and tablet segment which belong to a series of naming conventions currently under use by Google. While Nexus 7 has received a refreshed update in 2013, Nexus 10 is yet to see that. Instead, Google might launch the Nexus 8 to combat other 8-inch tablets in the market.
From the looks of it the tablet looks a lot similar to LG’s G Pad which is an 8.3-inch Android based tablet. It would be interesting to see if Google goes with LG to manufacture the Nexus 8 rather than sticking to Asus which currently manufactures Nexus 7 for the company.
The New Nexus 7 may be one of the most significant consumer electronics gadgets to hit the market this year, but that doesn’t mean that it is 100% perfect. According to recent reports, which have surfaced on most of the significant Android portals such as Android Police, XDA Developers and Google’s own forums, the new Nexus 7 has faulty GPS performance.
A multitude of reports are coming in from new Nexus 7 owners reporting that they have massive GPS issues on their new affordable, feature rich tablet. Apparently users are complaining that their Nexus 7 devices have GPS signal for a few minutes before it goes away completely and not coming back on. Google has apparently noticed the issue and it’s under an investigation to see if they can fix the issue, which could spread globally if left untreated considering how quickly the new Nexus 7 is rolling out across the globe.
It seems that the issue is experienced on almost all devices, with most users not picking up the issue as they barely use the GPS features for long enough. For now, it seems that Apple Maps may be your best option, so buy an iPad Mini!
Just two days after Google officially announced the new Google Nexus 7, with a release date of July 31, the next tablet king has started shipping to Best Buy shoppers who have pre-ordered the device and also hit the shelves at the famed retailer, bringing the tablet to the eager masses who have already committed to acquiring the new Nexus tablet.
The day of reckoning has arrived. Google today announced a wide array of new products, including the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update, which has already started rolling out, as well as the new Google Nexus 7 and a new HDMI streaming dongle called the Chromecast. All and all, Google most definitely had a few surprises for us.
The original Google Nexus 7 gave Android-powered tablets the marketshare Microsoft could only dream of by combining a feature rich specsheet with a low price. With the new Google Nexus 7, Google and ASUS team up once again to see if they can further grow the Android tablet marketshare.
New Nexus 7? Oh yes, something that has been hiding in the distance for a while now, at least after Google I/O didn’t show off Google’s next iteration of its popular Nexus tablet. The Nexus 7 successor, dubbed the NEW Nexus 7, will supposedly launch next week, quite possibly at Google’s event on Wednesday, but that’s not all!
The ASUS K009 has leaked yet again, this time with an image courtesy of Bluetooth SIG, and may very well be the next generation ASUS made Google Nexus 7 tablet. It looks quite a lot like it’s predecessor and may launch sometime in the second half of the year.
Common sense and recent rumours have suggested that ASUS and Google are preparing a successor to the hugely popular ASUS Google Nexus 7, which by all indications has become the best selling Android powered tablet of all time. The $199 tablet took the world by storm when it brought a great set of features to a low price range.
The Nexus 7 made Google and Asus much more relevant in the tablet market with the device bringing plenty of features to a low price. Everyone has been eagerly awaiting the rumoured successor to the Nexus 7 which is said to pack even more outstanding features, but retain the old $199 pricing.
A year after Google unveiled the Asus made Nexus 7 to the world, going on to sell millions of the devices, they seem to be preparing a successor that may be unveiled at Google I/O next week.
