Google's new Nexus 7 tablets now available for pre-order via Best Buy
 

Surprise! Google's new Nexus 7 tablet is now up for pre-order at Best Buy. Wait, how is that even possible?

Well, well, well. It seems that Best Buy is trying to pre-empt almighty Google's announcement which happens later today. Proudly displayed on the retailer's site are two landing pages of what appears to be Google's next-generation Nexus 7 tablets.

Even more surprising is the pre-order status of the said tablets, which is set at $229.99 for the 16GB model, and $269.99, for the 32GB variant. Not only are we seeing the specs, but we're also looking at high-resolution images of the tablet. The first thing that you will notice is the Android OS, which cannot be recognized as Jelly Bean 4.1 or 4.2. A further look below the specs reveals Android 4.3 Jelly Bean as its OS, which explains the new "limy" look of the UI.

The specs include a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 8064 processor, 2GB DDR3LM memory, 16GB on-board flash memory, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera. Also, the "Nexus" wording on its back has been arranged horizontally, unlike the current Nexus 7 model.
