Google event wrap-up: Nexus 7, Android 4.3, Chromecast and more

Google had the 'breakfast' event this morning and there were quite a few items discussed. As we often see, things kicked off with talk of numbers. In regards to the numbers, Google confirmed there had been more than 70 million Android tablets activated. Of course, that number ties directly to the first topic that was discussed -- the new Nexus 7.

New Nexus 7: Hands-on with Google’s tablet

Just as expected, today Google announced the new ASUS made Google Nexus 7 tablet to replace their wildly popular slate from last year. Simply calling it the new Nexus 7, not the Nexus 7 2, this new device comes packed and ready to rock. With more than 70 million Android tablet's sold to date, the newest member to join the lineup surely is impressive, and will sell by the truckloads. We've seen countless leaks but now we've got our hands all over it, so read on to see what we think.

Up on stage here in San Fran at Google's Android event, Hugo Barra has been busy announcing the new Nexus 7 tablet, as well as Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Which we'll talk about in a moment. He also broke some excellent news about a 4G LTE model of the new Nexus 7. As we all know, the slate has leaked all month long and nothing is a surprise. We knew 4G LTE was coming, but not to the extent he just announced.

As everyone had been expecting, the new Nexus 7 has been announced. And nicely, it looks like we can now begin calling it the Nexus 7, as opposed to the Nexus 7 2. The breakfast also brought details of Android 4.3, but for now how about we concentrate on the tablet itself. After all, this Nexus 7 refresh does bring some worthwhile changes. Talk of this new Nexus 7 began with a mention of how they were "staying focused on the same things that made the original so successful."

Nexus 7 2 vs Nexus 7: More pixels, more RAM and an extra camera

The breakfast has yet to begin, however it looks like the details of the new model Nexus 7 have all been revealed. The tablet appeared in a frenzy of leaks last night and ended this morning with pre-orders coming available with a few retailers including Best Buy. Those pre-orders already look to have sold out, but that simply means those who have yet to jump now have time to consider the purchase. Basically, we are taking a look at the new Nexus 7 as compared to the original Nexus 7 tablet.

Nexus 7 2 pre-orders go live ahead of official Google announcement

The Nexus 7 2 leaks seem to have gone into overdrive last evening and those were apparently followed up with some pre-order availability. The pre-order listings have just recently begun showing up and while we expect more will follow, we currently have Best Buy and PC Connection taking orders. There is also a listing with Sam's Club, however that points to a not yet available in-store listing.

The Nexus 7 2 has arrived at Staples, Best Buy, Office Max/Depot, as well as other locations outside the US, and it looks like some might be selling them a bit early.
