Renders and a variety of details surrounding the upcoming Google Nexus tablet have seemingly leaked just days ahead of the slate’s unveiling, which reports suggest will be occur on Wednesday at the Google I/O conference. Gizmodo Australia reports that the “Nexus 7” tablet will feature a 1.3Ghz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, a GeForce 12-core GPU, a 7-inch display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and 1GB of RAM. The ASUS-built device will apparently be available in two different models that vary by storage capacity — an 8GB version will launch for $199 and a 16GB model will cost $249. The rumored pricing aligns with numerous earlier reports and significantly undercuts Apple’s iPad tablets, though Apple is said to be prepping an “iPad mini” that will be released later this year and may cost between $200 and $250.
