Google Nexus 7 Tablet Unveiled: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 7-Inch Screen, Nvidia Tegra 3

Behold-the-Nexus-SF

One of the Google I/O's most anticipated products looks like it's official. The Verge uncovered an image of the rumored Google Nexus 7 tablet buried on the Google Play website.  The device first surfaced on the Internet earlier this week and was slated to be the long-whispered about joint tablet project between product maker ASUS and Google, a note-worthy collaboration since it marks Google's first foray into designing and branding an Android tablet.

Following up The Verge's find, Engadget reports that some of the 7-inch tablet's new specs were hidden on the Google Play site as well.  According an unpublished sales page, the Nexus tablet will boast an IPS display protected by scratch-release Gorilla Glass and with 1280 x 800-pixel screen resolution.

For internal storage, the Nexus will be available in 8 or 16GB variants, and the Nvidia Tegra 3 will pack 1GB of RAM. Also up is built-in GPS, Bluetooth, b/g/n Wi-Fi (duh), an accelerometer, gyroscope, and a magnetometer. Oh, and last but least, the Nexus 7 will also boast NFC support, so look for Google Wallet and Android Beam support.

That's a major landfall of hard details for this soon-to-be-official product but there's likely loads more specs and special features to discover. Not to mention, Google I/O is also rumored to highlight new features for Android's Jelly Bean update and new cloud storage capabilities. We'll report on all of the above and anything else that surfaces. Stay tuned.
