The new Nexus 7 in flesh: unboxing video shows us everything
Well, that's about it, folks. Google's event is now officially redundant – we know everything. Yes, the images of the next-generation Nexus 7 were real. We even know the specs and how the device fares in benchmarks. Heck, even the rumored Android 4.3 is in tow, making the roll out of the next iteration of Google's OS a matter of time.

Why all the bravado? Well, a tipster for AndroidPolice has really taken Google's thunder by spilling the beans with a video of the unboxing and a subsequent hands-on which confirms the leaks. If that doesn't quite qualify the tipster for a medal, he's got a bunch of high-res photos of pretty much each and every crack and nook of the new Nexus 7. We even get a visual comparison between the new tablet and its bigger brother – the Nexus 10. Sure, we would've preferred a comparison with its predecessor, but we can't complain at all.
