$229.99 for 16GB, $269.99 for 32GB
Google isn't expected to officially take the wraps of its new Nexus 7 tablet until a little later today, but Best Buy has jumped the gun and is already offering the new tablet for pre-order. The "new Nexus 7" is listed in 16 and 32GB flavors for $229.99 and $269.99 respectively, with Wifi data connectivity only — we're not seeing the rumored LTE version anywhere. A full selection of press renders is also provided, clearly showing the device we exclusively revealed last week.
Here's a rundown of what the Best Buy listing reveals about the new tablet —
- 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU
- 2GB of RAM
- 7.9x4.5x0.3 inches
- 11.2 ounces
- 7-inch, 1920x1200 display
- 16/32GB of storage
- 1.2MP front-facing canera, 5MP rear camera
- Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS
- Bluetooth 4.0 support
- Wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n
That lines up with what many were expecting from the ASUS-made tablet, and it represents a sizeable upgrade upon last year's N7. We'll be live from Google's presentation in San Francisco later today, where the company's expected to show off Android 4.3 and its new Nexus tablet.
