Android Community Weekly: June 24th, 2012

This week was all about the Galaxy S III here in the US. T-Mobile and AT&T both unleashed the flagship smartphone into the wild, although only in limited supply, and the masses can now enjoy Samsung's latest creation.

From Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a Nexus Tablet, and multiple other things this is a quick shout out to inform you all that Android Community as well as our sister site SlashGear will be there live! Capturing all the news as it happens.

The topic of what the next version of Android will be has been heavily discussed since Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was released, and before.

Google's big developer event is starting next week and we are all giddy with excitement here at Android Community about what all they'll announce.

Today the folks from DigiTimes have released more details (rumors) claiming the device is actually shipping now, is ready to rock, and Google will in fact start selling it early next month.

Some more rumors are hitting the wires today about Google's upcoming Nexus Tablet. We've been hearing details and rumors for a few months now but today we might have caught a break. Some photos have appeared on Picasa hinting that the device is indeed real, and snapping photos from inside Google's headquarters.

Jelly Bean and Nexus Tablet rumored for Google I/O

Well, we've been assuming for months that if Google is preparing a big reveal for the much-rumored Nexus Tablet, it would be at the company's yearly developer conference, Google I/O. TechnoBuffalo is claiming information from an anonymous source (the best kind!) that says the tablet will absolutely show up at the conference, and as other rumors have indicated, ASUS will produce the hardware. New software is also rumored, though whether or not it's Android 5.0 is still in question. Note that this comes just hours after DiGiTimes reported the same thing.

Rumored Nexus Tablet pushed back to July – don’t call it a delay

The Internet is abuzz with the latest rumors surrounding Google's first-party Android tablet, namely that it won't be here as soon as many had hoped. Despite rumors that the "Nexus Tablet" could begin production as soon as April and go on sale in May, anonymous sources now claim that the device has been pushed back for a July release. The reasoning? They're doing some tweaks to the internal hardware - which, by the way, is still a complete unknown - to lower the price. The tablet was already expected to retail for $200 or less to compete with the popular reader-tablets on the market right now.
