Next-gen Nexus 7 with Android 4.3 to reportedly be highlight of Google I/O

Nexus 7 Second-gen

Google will reportedly take advantage of Apple’s “delayed” second-generation iPad mini launch, and will reportedly make a new version of its Nexus 7 tablet a highlight of Google I/O next week. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s Retina iPad mini launch might be pushed back a bit and Google’s next-generation Nexus 7 will step in to the limelight following an unveiling at Google I/O. In a note picked up by AppleInsider, the analyst says Google’s next Nexus 7 will feature Android 4.3 — which will seemingly be another updated version of Android Jelly Bean — along with a 7-inch 1,920 x 1,200-pixel display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, Qi wireless charging support and a 4,000 mAh battery. The tablet will reportedly still start at $199, and Kuo makes no mention of when it might launch.
