Analysts: New Google Nexus 7 to be revealed at Computex?
With Computex starting on Tuesday, there is a hot buzz spreading through barber shops and around water coolers. According to analysts, ASUS will be introducing the next-generation of the Google Nexus 7 during the Computex show that runs through next Saturday. The revised version of the 7 inch Android tablet would improve on the resolution of the glass, taking it from 1280 x 800 to 1920 x 1200. And the quad-core Tegra 3 processor powering the OG Nexus 7 would be replaced by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. A thinner bezel will bring the design up to date. The price, at $199, is expected to remain the same.

CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets’s Chitra Gopal not only expects to see the next-generation ASUS built Google Nexus 7 at Computex, he also expects both ASUS and Acer to introduce other low-end 7 inch Android powered tablets that would feature silicon from MediaTek. According to ABI, it is these low-priced 7 inch slates that will help Android tablets outship the Apple iPad in 2013.

Should have let LG or Samsung do it instead. With Asus, you are going to have screen lift galore, slow I/O memory, and cheap parts again...... And let's hope Google decides to calibrate the screen this time. They really ruined the LG Optimus G and Nexus 7 screens with the poor muted colors. They were fortunate that the Nexus 10 screen was so hardcore that even not calibrating it couldn't ruin it.

"Cheap parts again.....?" Then you probably shouldn't recommend Samsung making the next version. And the with the $199 price tag, you're not going to always get the best of material. But you are getting the best for your money w/ the Nexus 7 anyway.

So you probably don't even know that the slow I/o memory issue is also on their transformer infinity, correct?

I was just referring to the build quality, not the specs.

yeah the slow i/o on my tf700 is terrible, no way it should have shipped like it is.

Samsung parts are the best parts....not even fan boys can argue against that.....what do you think a lot of people in the mobile industry use? It definitely isn't where Asus gets them from. You might not like the texture of their plastics but they aren't cheap like the crap Asus uses.

Giving that you're saying who cares over an Android tablet vs. a Windows RT tablet just says that a lot of people are not going to care about you wanting a 7-inch Windows RT tablet.

why would you want rt? It uses arm, you can probably flash a android tablet to use windows rt if you really wanted to. What i want is a tablet based off haswell 15W chip. Windows on a tablet with a lot better performance than existing chips with less power.

Back cameras on tablets are useless, anyone who uses them looks like an idiot.

^^^This. I had to laugh at an idiot I saw doing this yesterday.

back cam for taking pictures on a tablet,, not a good idea, I agree. but it's important to have a good cam for applications like camscanner.

They don't need to make it too hardcore in my opinion. They just need to give it a solid refresh to keep it relevant, and it's excellent price will do the rest of the work.

I hope they keep the rubber backing.
