Google Gizmodo Australia claims to have a training document which details the rumoured Google Nexus tablet. It's built by Asus, 7", 1280x800, 1.3Ghz Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, GeForce '12-core' GPU (whatever the heck that means). The 8GB variant will be $199, the 16GB one $299. It looks quite decent, and will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Interestingly, the document also states that going forward, Google will take care of Android updates directly - however, it's not made clear if that's for this device only, or for all Android devices. The "going forward" bit would suggest all devices, but as much as I hope so, it seems unlikely.

I don't know yet if this thing has an SD card slot. But if there was one, can you explain me why one would care about ridiculously overpriced internal storage instead of opting for cheaper and upgradeable external storage like on digital cameras ?

I mean, $100 for 8GB of low-quality flash storage sounds ridiculous to me. Pen drives of that capacity costed much less than that two years ago, and the market moves fast...
