Next-generation Nexus 7, Project Glass official unveiling expected at Google I/O in mid-May
Google and Asus are about to launch the second generation Nexus 7 at Google I/O in mid-May as shipments of the device are expected to reach 1 million units in May and 8 million for the whole of 2013, according to DigiTimes’ supply chain sources.

The next generation Nexus 7 is expected to be a key part of Asus’ plan to ship 12 million tablets in 2013. Quanta Computers that manufactures the Nexus 7 is also likely to grow shipments this year.

We have earlier heard that the new Nexus 7 will keep the 7-inch screen, but one with a higher resolution than the 1280 x 800 pixel one on the first-gen tablet. The device will also use a Qualcomm chip with optional 3G connectivity and will be priced at $149 to $199 for the base model.

The Nexus 7 is expected to land on the Google Play store in June or July.
