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'm betting it won't since none of the Nexus phones have SD card slots.

As for why they don't make removable storage the "/home" partition for user data and applications, I have no idea. I can only speculate that the Android team expected better integration with Google then what's going on now.

The 8GB probably isn't where most of the cost is. That was probably a couple of dollars. Besides, you're supposed to use the Google cloud. ;)
