New Nexus 7 tablet expected in July by Google

Google will launch a new version of its Nexus 7 tablet with a more powerful processor and higher-resolution screen around July. New device would be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor, replacing the Nvidia Tegra 3 used in the first version.

Google is aiming to ship as many as eight million of the Asustek-made tablets in the second half of the year, throwing down the gauntlet to other low-end tablets such as Amazon's Kindle Fire and Apple's iPad mini. Google, which gets almost all of its revenue from online advertising, wants the aggressively priced Nexus tablets to be a hit.

The latest version will have a higher screen resolution, a thinner bezel design and adopt the Qualcomm processor over Nvidia's for power reasons. Qualcomm and Nvidia are competing aggressively in the tablet market as they seek to expand from their traditional strongholds of cellphones and PCs respectively.
