Google Nexus 7 Follow-Up Leaked By Asus Support Employee?

EMBARGOED UNTIL 22.30 MONDAY OCTOBER 8 2012 A Google Nexus 7 tablet, winner of the 'Tablet of the Year' and 'Gadget of the Year' awards at the T3 Gadget Awards 2012, held at Old Billingsgate, in central London.

Given its huge popularity (and permanent place in our own best tablets list, cough), it's hardly surprising that Google is planning a follow up to the Nexus 7 tablet.

And while we didn't get a glimpse at the device at the I/O conference as some expected, it appears as though it's still on the way.

According to an unverified report, Asus technical support apparently leaked some details of the new Nexus 7 in a chat with a customer.

NDTV Gadgets said that in the chat it confirmed a new 7-inch device running Android 4.3, with a 1920x1080 pixels screen, a Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB of RAM.

In specs purportedly posted by the impressively/suspiciously hapless employee, the tablet will also have 32GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixels camera and a 1.2-megapixel shooter on the front.

It has been rumoured that the tablet could be released as soon as this month, though we've got nothing solid on those rumours.

Take a look at the chat log posted by the leaker below.
