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.

If it's a full-sized SD slot, that would be nice. Up to 16 GB cards are now under $1/GB up here, and the 32+ GB cards are hovering around $2/GB.

MicroSD cards are approx. double that right now (8 GB for just under $20 after taxes).

Obviously, these aren't the fastest SD cards around, but they aren't the crappiest either. Price goes up with speed requirements.

(Prices in CDN$.)

Absolutely amazes me that Apple can charge a $100 US premium for 8 GB of extra storage.
