ASUS and Google's new Nexus 7 tablet has been released that conflicts with previous reports. After announcing the tablet Google was quoted saying they were making no profit from the tablet, but that wasn't entirely accurate. Last week we reported the tablet cost around $184 to manufacture but new reports today claim it's much less.

Nexus 7 tablet just received its first over the air software update. The update is arriving now for those who luckily already have the tablet and brings along Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. The update is rather small but brings the Nexus 7 to the same version of Android Google pushed to AOSP last night.
Nexus 7 tablet is causing quite a stir from potential buyers. With such an awesome tablet for a low price everyone seems to want one. While earlier today the Play Store changed the "expected ship date" from 3-4 weeks to 1-2 weeks, we are now seeing more than one retail store suggesting it will be available on Thursday.
Jelly Bean source to AOSP. Google's finally released the source code, which means they are feeling good about its current state, are ready to let the world enjoy it, and we can expect those Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 tablets to start shipping soon.
Nexus 7 tablet is pretty stealthy dressed in all black, but it looks like that will be changing soon because ASUS just outed a colorful set of official cases for the new Nexus tablet. The tablet maker posted a picture on Twitter showing off 6 colorful options for those looking to protect their new tablet.
Nexus 7 tablet shipping dates. When Google announced the tablet back at Google IO they said it would ship mid-July but now a few online shops have spilled the dates early. Big name stores like Staples are listing July 12th to the 17th for shipping dates.
Google announced their new ASUS made Nexus 7 tablet at Google IO for the low price of just $199 there was a roar of cheers and clapping. Offering such a high quality product with top of the line specs at that price surely isn't easy. After initial reports suggested Google would make zero profit on the tablet we now have additional details.
Nexus 7 tablet lacks a rear facing dedicated camera, and instead only rocks a front camera for video chat type apps. Which makes it understandable that Google did away with a camera app making it so you can't just snap photos at will. Today however a familiar Android developer has released an app that solves this problem.
Jelly Bean is Google Now. Google's new virtual voice and search assistant much like Siri, only smarter. Being able to gather from the biggest search engine in the world surely helps their cause. We've seen plenty of the features outlined from Google themselves during IO last week, and have reported on them ourselves. What you'll see below however is an extensive hands-on video asking Google Now tons and tons of questions.
Google Now for example. The awesome new Siri-besting voice assistant announced alongside Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We all want it, and developers from XDA are already hard at work making it work on Ice Cream Sandwich.
