Is this the new Nexus 7?

Notorious leakers @evleaks tweeted this photo on Sunday.

Google may not have announced any hardware at I/O, but it appears that the tech giant may be continuing its Nexus tablet line.

A photo posted on Twitter yesterday by @evleaks claimed to be the latest manifestation of Google's Nexus 7 tablet. Today, a leaked advertisement from U.S. electronics retailer Best Buy revealed that it has a 1,920 x 1,200 display and a 16GB version will retail for $229.

Manufactured by Asus, the Nexus 7 in the leaked photos appears to be running Android 4.3. While previous rumors claimed the camera will be 5 megapixels, nothing is confirmed yet. However, if the photos are real, it doesn't look like the rear camera will offer a flash, like most tablets.

According to the leaked Best Buy ad, the Nexus 7 launch is set for July 30th.

Take my money already Google, please! I've been waiting for a Nexus 7 successor to upgrade from my OG Transformer, I really want a smaller tablet. I like the TF, but for my use a smaller and easier to hold (with one hand) model is much better suited. Just about the only time I might miss the TF is when I'm traveling without a laptop. I don't think I ever used the rear camera beyond day one, front one got plenty of use tho (once Skype figured out a way around Tegra 2's limitations anyway).
