A number of consumers have been waiting for the new and refreshed version of the Google Nexus 7 tablet. Even though the tablet did not make it to Google I/O, it seems to have been spotted at the FCC and Bluetooth SIG for certification processes. This new tablet has been manufactured by ASUS and has the codename ASUS K008/K009.

There had been rumors that this new Google Nexus 7 tablet would be unveiled at the Google I/O event this year, but we got see a stock version of Samsung Galaxy S4 instead. Does this mean that Google is still working on the Nexus 7 tablet? Or does it mean that Google will launch the new Nexus 7 according to their yearly routine?
The Google Nexus 7 tablet has been one of the best in its class. And even though the device was not unveiled at Google I/O, many of the consumers did not feel any kind of disappointment since they knew that Google I/O was not the right time and place for the new Nexus 7. And they all might very soon be proved correct by Google.
