Nexus 7 tablet photo found on Google Play site
Not that we think any of you were still holding out, but whatever sliver of doubt remained about Google’s Nexus tablet can be put to rest, as The Verge has posted an image of it that was discovered on the Google Play store. The image is presumably there to be ready for an imminent launch, since the tablet is expected to go on sale next week.

One thing the image does is confirm that the name will in fact be the Google Nexus 7 (or Nexus7, if you prefer). It also shows off the same wallpaper and glassy search widget seen on previous leaks of Jellybean running on the Galaxy Nexus, so it would seem to confirm those reports. It also shows off an expanded dock, that looks a bit more like the ICS phone launcher than the Honeycomb-based tablet UI currently seen.

It’s almost exactly a half an hour before Google I/O begins, and we’ll be sure to bring you all the mobile-related news that emerges. For now we’ll leave you with this image and a question for those of you considering purchasing the new Nexus 7: what is your first impression? Is the sort of svelte device you’d like to purchase, or did you have something else in mind?

Looks like a tablet to me. Not ugly, not sexy. and why would anyone think a tablet, which is a screen and a bezel would be sexy? or ugly, it's a tablet, what r u expecting?

i actually think this could be fake because yes it is a tablet yet it uses the smartphone UI of ICS..

DAMN FOLKS WHY DO THEY ALWAYS HAVE TO MAKE 7 INCH TABLETS THE NEED TO GO UP 1 INCH TO AN 8 INCH. AN 8 INCH TABLET GIVE A PERSON 20 PERCENT MORE SCREEN AREA TO READ AND IS 4 INCH BY 7 INCHES AND HAS A 95 PERCENT 16 BY 9 ASPECT RATIO AND YOU READ MAGAZINR TEXT AT 100 PERCENT NORMAL SIXE IN THE LANDSCAPE POSITION IT'S A BETTER READER

i think its appealing... android has to incorporate sleek design into their products now that the OS is the "People's Choice"

Good Job Google!

no hate here...

I like that big nexus logo on the back. Looks OK to me otherwise.

that top bezel is kinda too wide and the Nexus logo is quite big for my liking.. but heck, if this is $200 and runs on 4.1, I think i'm gonna get it..

folks there is hope that a Microsoft "Mimn Surface"7 inch tablet can be created because the resolution of the screen on the "Nexus 7 Falls within the resolution specs
for Windows 8 which the Surface computers use as their reference. there really could be a Nook 3 that could be running Windows score 8 RT score one for Samsung Electronics Apple may have killed the one tablet but they can get revenge through
cutting Apple sales with the 7 inch Android and Windows 8 RT tablets now if any body at Microsoft is reading this make damn sure a Microsoft mini surface is created and sell them cheap without Microsoft office which would push up the cost of a Mini surface computer this is a good way for Microsoft windows 8 RT to get into the LOW end Tablet market People do buy them
