Google Nexus tablet launch confirmed by fresh image from Google I/O

June 27, 2012

A few weeks ago during Computex 2012, Android Authority has exclusively confirmed something that was rumored for a few months, the fact that Asus will indeed make the first Google tablet, currently called the Nexus 7.

Since then we’ve seen other proof revealing that Asus and Google have partnered up to create this 7-inch affordable Kindle Fire competitor, and just recently we’ve had the chance to check out an extensive list of rumored specs and features of the device.

Earlier today a couple of reports from Bloomberg and Reuters confirmed that the Google Nexus tablet will be unveiled during Google I/O, which is something we are already expecting.

But with just a few hours to go until Google I/O kicks off, we have received photographic proof that confirms a Nexus announcement is scheduled for today. Ausdroid (via Michael Evans) posted the image above, a photo taken from outside the building where the developer conference will take place, and we can clearly see the Nexus logo placed somewhere inside the building, at the third floor.

What other reason to have it there if not a pending Google Nexus tablet announcement? We’ll be back with more Google I/O news later today, so don’t go anywhere!
