Tweet news: LG-V510 tipped to be a Nexus device
A tweet sent out by serial leaker evleaks reveals some very interesting information. According to the tweet, the mysterious LG-V510 is indeed a Nexus device. If that model number rings some bells in your head, it should. We first heard about this unit when it received its Bluetooth Certification in October. With the LG G Pad 8.3 proudly wearing the model number of LG-V500, it was believed that the LG-V510 could be the oft-rumored Nexus 8.

That dream seemed to be quashed earlier this month by the leak of a purported LG Service Manual for the LG-V510. The manual allegedly revealed that the device was an 8.3 inch tablet with resolution of 1200 x 1920 with 2GB of RAM. The back and front cameras weighed in at 5MP and 1.3MP with a 4600mAh battery inside. With the 8.3 inch screen and no mention of the Nexus brand anywhere, this was all shaping up to be another variant of the LG G Pad 8.3, perhaps an LTE enabled model.

Now that the usually reliable evleaks has received a tip that the LG-V510 is a Nexus model, we are right back to square one which means it could be the Nexus 8. Considering that such a slate would naturally be a rival to the 7.9 inch Apple iPad with Retina display, if this really is the Nexus 8, we'd expect to see some quick action on Google's part with only two weeks left to shop for Christmas.

Wonder why Google would choose LG to do the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and now also the Nexus 8! There are brands with a lot better Android tablets in the market

Impossible. They would kill the Nexus 7. Next year, maybe, they could choose 8'' instead of 7, but for this year the choice has been made.
Now it's time to release the new Nexus 10.

I'm yet to see @evleaks be wrong yet.
Only once with the Nexus 5, and he came back 3 days later and corrected himself.

Maybe you know something I missed?
