Via a URL-enabled tweak in Google's Android app market Play, it's been confirmed  that Google really does have a Nexus-branded tablet  on the way and it is indeed built by Asus and dubbed Nexus 7. The device pictured in the image is sporting a different flavor of Android that's expected to be revealed as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at the imminent I/O event.
Updated: More information has surfaced, including the price of $199 for an 8GB version and $249 for a 16GB edition. It has a 1280 by 800 pixel IPS screen and packs GPS, Wi-Fi and NFC.
Maeanwhile another leaked device, the Nexus Q , is a spherical home-media streaming server that'll stream content from the cloud, including video, to your home entertainment system--though it does have its own audio amplifier so you can hook speakers directly to it. It will sell for $299.
