Is this the Nexus tablet sliding through the FCC ahead of Google I/O?

0. phoneArena 30 May 2012, 11:00 posted on

It appears that the Nexus 7 is passing FCC certification under the guise of the MeMo Pad 370T as the device gets ready for its close up in late June...

Please tell me that they simplify the design in the fcc photo. I dont see a micro-sd or micro-hdmi :(

well, at that price I don't think it could be avoided.

the last few nexus devices did not have either of those things, so i wouldnt get your hopes up that the next one does. Besides, they use those ports now that can do micro to HDMI from my understanding.

Besides, they need something to differentiate from the normal Asus line or it could eat into it. The ebook user crowd wont care, the more hard core crowd should go for a transformer instead.

if it's quad core with a decent screen, an 8MP camera and decent battery, i might get one and replace my prime and phone --- and more cash for me.

i wouldnt hold my breath for a camera at that price. Maybe 5mpx just to say it has one, but i doubt it.

Agree. Quad Core, Good screen, and an official Google tablet, sounds like a pretty sweet deal for $200

yeah... but the Asus Memo before had an 8MP if I'm not mistaken? Throw in GSM capabilities, I'm in it for that being my phone. Sounds very neat.

GSM capabilities would be sick.

Who needs a camera on a tablet?

Well, everyone's going to hate me for this, but I do. I don't have an SLR Camera or any PaS Cams, and my smartphone has low camera specs, and I usually never let go of this tablet, so IMO having a beautiful 8MP camera on my prime and that can be viewed on such a big screen is a win for me.

For $149 (if its real) then few missing features will be acceptable...like rear camera...but front camera is must have...micro sd...can live without...hdmi...like i ever used it on my laptop :)

Anyway...appreciate google taking nexus devices seriously

The FCC images definitely are simplified. I'm not sure whether to expect a rear camera at this price point, but I'd be floored if there wasn't a front-facing camera - Google is going to want to push Google Hangouts and Gmail-based video chat with this device.

Indeed but I would want to push this tablet away from my ugly face.

I don't really care if they call this the Nexus Tab or whatever because in my opinion, the Motorola Xoom is the original Nexus Tab. It was the first major tablet to run Android and was the first tablet to run Android 3.0 (the first version of Android optimized for tablets).

I hope it doesn't weigh a lot, anyone held a Kindle would know that weight is a pain in the ass. Kindles are pretty heavy for their size, I hope this isn't heavier than that thing and another thing that it would have that puts it over the Kindle Fire is front facing camera, one hell of a processor and runs Vanilla Android OS.

WiFi is just up my alley, no need for useless GSM nor LTE nor contracts. I live in NYC where hotspots are all over the damn place aside from having Optimum WiFi. Bring it on Google, I must test this thing out. I wonder if Google will release a 10" version with 1080p screen just to prove that they mean business.

That's an excellent question - it occurred to me that if they do end up naming this the Nexus 7, that implies that there may be a Nexus 10 at some point in the future (this fall?).
