In-line with many recent rumors, Google, in partnership with ASUS, has unveiled an updated version of the Nexus 7, a 7-inch tablet that runs stock Android. Last year’s Nexus 7 was quite a hit, with the updated model expected to do even better. The updates include faster processors (specs below), a much higher-resolution display, an added front-facing camera (that’s awkwardly placed on the front), 4G LTE support and Android 4.3, still named Jelly Bean. It’ll be available next Tuesday, July 30th, from the Google Play online store and various retail outlets. Pricing starts at $229 for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only model, $269 for the 32GB model, and $349 for the 32GB 4G LTE model.
