Time was we were expecting the Motorola-built X-Phone to be the star of Google’s annual I/O event thingy.
Alas, it sounds like we’ll have to make do with revamped versions of existing products. Having said that, the refreshed Google Nexus 7 sounds pretty sweet. I think I want one.
Apple Insider has intercepted a research note from “noted analyst” Ming-Chi Kuo, who reckons the Google Nexus 7 will hog the limelight at this year's I/O.
With the Retina iPad mini 2 reportedly falling behind schedule, Google will keenly promote the Asus-built Nexus 7 refresh as the best ‘tweener tablet on the market.
We’re told to expect a 7in display with 1980 x 1200 resolution, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 5MP rear camera, Jelly Bean (Android 4.3) and support for Texas Instruments’ Qi wireless charging.
As for the refreshed Google Nexus 7 design, it’s tipped to include a narrow iPad mini-style bezel.
All sounds pretty good to me, and the best thing about it is, it’ll reportedly grab the price baton from the current Google Nexus 7. Yeah, I should probably buy one, lest I forget what Android looks like.
