    We have in intriguing new rumor regarding the next generation of the Google Nexus 7 tablet. According to the latest intel, the new Nexus 7 will be launched in Taiwan by the end of this month. This leaked info came with some additional details too. We have a spec list and some pricing. Supposedly the new Nexus 7 16GB (Model Asus K008) will be $229.99 and the 32GB version (Model Asus K009) will be $299.99. It's worth noting that while both of these named devices are a bit more expensive than the previous generation, both of these specific models also include LTE support, which is what is adding to the cost. There is no word on whether a non-LTE version will be offered. Here's a spec breakdown for the K009:
    • ASUS K009/ME571K
    • Snapdragon APQ8064 processor
    • JDI made LT070ME05000 liquid crystal panel
    • 2GB of RAM
    • Storage capacity of 32GB
    • 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.2-megapixels front camera
    • LTE B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B13 ยท B17
    • WCDMA 1900/1700/850Mhz GSM 1900/850Mhz
    • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC enabled
    • Battery capacity of 3950mAh
    Sadly, there's still no word on whether these new versions will sport a microSD slot, but we will keep you informed as quickly as we learn any new info.
