Google hold their annual I/O conference around May and this year could see the announcement of an updated Nexus 7 tablet.

The existing model has been around since June 2012 and had a storage boost later that year (giving up to 32Gb internal storage).

Rumors suggest the Nexus 7 will get a better screen (going from 1280 x 800 resolution to 1920 x 1080), an updated processor and a rear camera.

Google and Asus didn’t anticipate the original tablet being so successful which caused stock to be scarce for a few months. They soon rectified that and now it is hot property.

With the emphasis on keeping the price down, don’t expect Google to slap on lots of extra features. Instead, there will probably be a standard 5-megapixel shooter on the back and possibly increased storage of up to 64Gb.

The original Nexus 7 sells for under £200 and I fully expect the revised model to be priced similarly. This is good news as the current tablet is one of the best 7-inch slabs out there and will most likely get a lower price when the new one arrives.

What do think of the Nexus 7? Let me know in the comments below.
