The Nexus 7 has been a solid little workhorse, but now that the next generation is in, it's time to put it out to pasture. The original Nexus tablet is no longer available for purchase in the U.S. This is just a bit surprising - I had expected Google to try and get the last bit of stock out with a closeout sale. The various pages for the 16GB and 32GB models plus the AT&T and T-Mobile 3G versions are still up, but there's no option to buy.

Google Play Games has done wonders to tie game scores and achievements to our Google+ profiles and show us who's kicking the most butt in any particular title. Yet information has thus far been scattered across individual apps and Google+, limiting the value of the experience. Today Google is rolling out a standalone app consolidating all of this content in one place.

The new app can display achievements unlocked in individual games, those that a player has yet to unlock, and leaderboards for every different map within a specific game.

Google officially unveiled the newest version of Android this morning – Android 4.3 Jelly Bean – and of course the first question is when can I have it?! Good news for current Nexus owners: it's coming today. The current edition Nexuses – 10, 7, and 4 – along with the Galaxy Nexus (GSM is assumed here), will all begin getting the update as of today.

Of course, there's another big question here: when will the Google Play Edition HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 get the update?

Google has announced the much-anticipated successor to the Nexus 7, released a little over a year ago, today at a small press conference. Hugo Barra introduced the device, which has been leaked extensively in the past month (several of those times being here, more recently).

The new Nexus 7 is thinner by 1.8mm, and narrower by 2.75mm on each side of the bezel in portrait orientation. It's also 50 grams lighter.

The new Nexus 7, which has already been fully revealed and benchmarked earlier today, just popped up on BestBuy.com for pre-order in both 16 and 32 GB capacities. As expected, the refreshed 2013 N7 runs:

  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (you can read about some of the new Android 4.3 features here)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro @ 1.5GHz processor with Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2GB DDR3 RAM
  • 7" 1920x1200 IPS display with antifingerprint and scratch-resistant glass
  • 16/32GB internal storage
  • 5MP rear and 1.2MP front-facing cameras
  • SlimPort
  • BT 4.0
  • Notification LED
  • No SD card (did you really expect one?)
  • 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • NFC
  • Qi wireless charging-compatible
  • 3,950 mAh battery (up to 9 hours of active use)
  • 7.9" x 4.5" x 0.3"
  • 11.2oz

Wireless charging isn't mentioned, so I'm becoming less and less convinced it's capable of such a feat.

Google is set to (probably) announce the new and improved Nexus 7 tomorrow, but we've been taking a look at the device ahead of time. Some of the specs from previous rumors were dead on, and some not so much. We've got all the details and benchmarks right here. So let's dive in.

The new Nexus 7 is no secret. It's been leaked, leaked, and leaked again. But up until today, we hadn't seen the actual device in the flesh. One lucky soul was able to get his hands on a retail version of the new N7 and has provided us with essentially every angle, pose, nook, and cranny of the device – he even offered up a couple of pictures of the box.

Yesterday, @evleaks scored several press images of the new Nexus 7, which is expected to be revealed by Google on July 24th. Not even a day later, we now have an exclusive gallery of more recent press shots that not only offer several more angles, but also showcase what I believe is the new default Android 4.3 Nexus wallpaper which replaces the Android 4.2 wallpaper seen in the previous pictures.

The new Nexus 7 leaks just keep on coming. The venerable @evleaks has just posted a high-resolution press shot of the still-unannounced tablet. It matches up with previous leaks quite nicely.

The image shows a device with big top and bottom bezels, a front notification light, and dual speakers on the back. The rear-facing camera is there, as is the sideways Nexus logo. Also, note the odd placement of the front-facing camera.

Google can play dumb all it wants – we know a new Nexus 7 is coming, and apparently so does Best Buy. A leaked ad from the electronics retailer shows the new Nexus 7 set to arrive on July 30th for the previously rumored price of $229.99.
