    According to a report by Android Geeks that cites a Google Dublin employee as source, Android 4.5 will be introduced in July along with a new tablet, the Nexus 8. The source said that Google's I/O event which is scheduled to take place on June 25-26, will only focus on services.

    It also added that Google will stop making a 7-inch Nexus tablet, due to increased competition in the segment.

    Earlier, a DigiTimes report that cited a Taiwan based source had said that Google will launch an 8-inch Nexus tablet at the end of April with "initial shipments of two million units." The same report had also suggested that the tablet would be made by Asus, the OEM which makes the Nexus 7 tablet for Google.

    The Nexus 8 tablet would compete with Apple's iPad mini, Samsung's 8-inch Galaxy Tab and LG G Pad.
