Like other tech lovers, I was excited when I heard rumors that Google would be refreshing its best selling Nexus 7 tablet. 

Google will likely announce the new Nexus 7 later today but it seems Best Buy wanted to be first and has the product up for pre-order already. The new Nexus 7 comes in the 16 & 32 GB varieties (WIFI only).

What are the specs? I thought you would never ask: 

  • 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 7-inch, 1920x1200 display
  • 16/32GB of storage
  • 1.2MP front-facing canera, 5MP rear camera
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS
  • Bluetooth 4.0 support
  • Wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n
It defintely is an upgrade from last year's model but is it enough to push existing users to upgrade?
