Published by Twitter account @evleaks, the images show a Nexus 7 with two rear-facing speakers, a notification light sitting below the screen, and a rear camera.

The images also show a visible slot on the left side of the tablet, which many suspect to be a SIM card slot. The original Nexus 7 is currently available with 3G connectivity, but this model only launched in recent months.

The evleaks Twitter account has a solid track record when it comes to publishing correct rumours and the images leaked appear to be Google's official press shots of the new Nexus 7.

The images come just after US blog Android Central published photos of an upcoming Best Buy catalogue listing the new Nexus 7.

According to the catalogue, the device will be available from next week (in the US at least) for a listed price of US$229.99. It also reveals the new Nexus 7 will have a screen resolution of 1920x1200, a significant upgrade over the current model's 1280x800 screen.

Other rumoured specifications of the new Nexus 7 tablet include a quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 4GB of RAM, both 16GB and 32GB models and wireless charging capabilitles.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
