The Samsung Nexus is a Google based device that has gained much market following and praises. Goggle is now attempting this coup with the Nexus 7 tablet. The Google Nexus 7 tablet is still scheduled for its market debut next month, and it’s moved to the top of the rumor pile with a newly released document. A Nexus 7 training document that was apparently sent to third-party retailers confirms the specs that we’ve been hearing about for awhile:
1.3 GHz Tegra 3 processor
8GB of storage (with a 16GB option)
Android, Jelly Bean (4.1)
1.2 megapixel front-facing camera
7″ IPS display with a 178 degree viewing angle and 1,280 by 800 resolution
It looks like the tablet will have a black slate with an engraved Nexus logo on the reverse. Apparently, ASUS is the Nexus 7 manufacturer of choice.
The Nexus 7 also comes with a super-cheap $199 price tag. A version with 16GB of storage will be available for $249.

Google has a new life planned for its Google Maps service:
Realistic 3D mapping that utilizes “fly-over technology”, allowing users to navigate through a 3D cityscape while detailed buildings remain accurately to scale. This feature will be completed in metro areas first.
The new Tour Guide service available offline for Android devices. If you're in an area without an internet connection, you'll be able to save a map on your Android device and zoom in and out as you navigate.
Google Maps is the default map service in iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S as well as the iPad 2 and iPad 3. The company said that 3D maps will be coming to both Android and iOS devices in the coming weeks. Apple plans to debut its own 3D maps service at its World Wide Developer Conference that begins June 11th.
Google Android’s numerous handset manufacturers have made the mobile OS platform incredibly accessible to consumers across the world. The one downside is that each of these vendors goes through its own process to adopt the latest version upgrades. Some handsets are not capable of those major upgrades, like Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
Luckily for Sprint Nexus S 4G owners, the wait should not be much longer. An internal testing ROM was seen on Google’s servers that will update the Nexus S 4G to Android v4.0.4 build IMM26. Of course that file was pulled once it was seen, but the more curious of you can get a mirrored copy at xda-developers. But, with the removal from Google servers, it is likely better to wait for the official release.

The popularity of this device has customers of Verizon wishing it was available as an unlocked handset that could be used with their existing contracts. As LTE 4G becomes more mainstream across North America, the availability of smartphones capable of taking advantage of these speeds will increase. Carriers have been rushing to pair up with manufacturers to augment their product lines. The question of whether customers will be willing to pay the premium cost of these data plans.
The good news is that there is no requirement to utilize the 4G LTE capabilities until the costs are more accessible. In the interim, these customers have the good fortune of not having to purchase a new handset to get the Ice Cream Sandwich update which leaves more funds to invest in the must-have and secretly-covet accessories to make the most of your pocket PC.
As this report indicates, the version had release keys which denote a fast-approaching launch date. So far, the next gen Android platform has had great reviews, so be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for your Nexus S 4G update!
