Did the Google Nexus 8 tablet just get its Bluetooth Certification?
Back in July, we shook some salt, and advised you to do the same, on the rumor that an Asus built Google Nexus 8 tablet was coming in the fall. That rumor included an alleged render of the tablet. But now comes some information that shows that we might have been too hasty to dismiss the ides of a Nexus 8 so quickly. That thought is based on the news that a device with the model number LG-V510 has been awarded its Bluetooth Certification. The listing date was Friday, October 25th.

What makes all of this so interesting is that the LG-V500 is the LG G Pad 8.3, so the LG-V510 could be quite possibly related to the LG G Pad 8.3. Such possibilities include an LTE version of the slate, or an honest-to-goodness Nexus 8. By the way, the Nexus 8 render from back in July actually was part of a concept someone put together in May that included a Nexus 5 phone and Nexus 8 and Nexus 11 tablets. The specs for the concept version of the Nexus 8 called for a resolution of 1920 x 1200 on the 8 inch glass, a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and an Adreno 320 GPU. The tablet would have a 3MP rear-facing camera while the front-facing snapper would be 2MP. The 8GB model had a price of $199. Keep in mind that those specs are from a concept device.
 
What is real is the Bluetooth Certification. Will the LG-V510 turn out to be the LTE enabled version of the LG G Pad 8.3, or is there a real-life Nexus 8 on the way? We should know the answer soon.
