Images of Google Nexus tablet made by ASUS leak online

updated 02:41 pm EDT, Wed June 6, 2012

Alleged photos of upcoming ASUS-made Google Nexus tablet show up

Rumors of a Nexus-branded, low-cost tablet date back to mid-March, and now some purported images of the device have been shared online by PhoneArena. According to the photos, the ASUS-made device will have a white-faced front panel and a two-tone back, along with an ear speaker slit, suggesting the tablet will have phone functionality as well. The 7-inch device may also sport a front-facing camera, rear camera and all the usual sensors.

Earlier reports of NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 chip housed inside are also backed up by the sources. It's also likely to get 1GB of RAM, and the preloaded OS will be Android 4.1 when it launches. This latest version of the OS, while seemingly minor, may bring with it the just-announced Google 3D Maps to portable devices.

The Google Nexus tablet, whatever its final name will turn out to be, is expected to cost less than $250.
