The Google Nexus 7 tablet should look something like this

With but a few weeks to go before Google I/O 2012 kicks off and the presumed Google Nexus tablet announcement, we would expect to get a look at the rumored device before long.  If the two images here prove to be legit, this is what the Asus-manufactured Google Nexus 7 tablet looks like… only less blurry.

UPDATE: Speaking of legitimacy, TechHog has a great write-up on all the reasons that make these two pictures out to be fakes.

Featuring what appears to be three colors (white face, black/grey back), the tablet has the familiar Google logo right in middle of the backside.  Looking quite a bit like a massive Galaxy Note, the tablet looks to be held in more of a portrait mode as opposed to landscape.  Notice that speaker at the top of the screen?  Surely we are not the only one who thinks this thing might double as a phone.  Either way, we’d use Google Voice and install Groove IP on the first day.

Recapping some of the details that have been circulating for a while, the Nexus 7 should have a Tegra 3 processor, run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and run about $150-$200.
