Google and Asustek, the purported partners in developing the rumored Google-branded Nexus 7 tablet, are expected to reveal the device in the upcoming Google I/O event. Google I/O, which stands for Input/Output, gathers developers to talk about computing innovations, particularly those concerning Google and its subsidiaries. This will be held on June 27 to 29 in the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Google has not confirmed any of these speculations, nor has it categorically denied them. The company, it seems, prefers to keep silent on the matter, even in the face of suspected leaks. For instance, recent photos that are allegedly taken by the Nexus 7 had appeared online, but were immediately taken down. Last month, benchmark tests of the Nexus 7 have surfaced, as well.
Meanwhile, it is rumored that Google has started shipping the devices to retailers this month, but the official release itself is in July. Google is likewise predicted to sell as many as 3 million units of the Nexus tablet by the second half of the year.
