Google Nexus Tablet in 8GB and 16GB models live on Google Play. Nexus Q also appears.

Well that certainly didn’t take long with the insane amount of people trying to find every little tidbit of information regarding the two new products that are going to be announced right now during the Google I/O 2012 Day 1 Keynote session (which you can watch live here), those two items being the Nexus Tablet and Nexus Q.

The Nexus Q is a “social streaming media player” running Android that will streams your favorite entertainment from Google Play and YouTube to the biggest speakers and screen in your house. Specs for the Nexus Q are as follows:

– 16GB NAND flash memory
– Android 4.0
– Google Play Music
– Google Play Movies and TV
– YouTube
– WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
– Bluetooth

Currently the Nexus Q is already live on the Google Play store and the pricing for this little dome shaped awesomeness is set at $299.00. You can check out the full details for the Nexus Q over on the device’s market listing. International readers are unfortunately going to have to wait as the Nexus Q is only available for US residents right now.

Moving on, there are two models of the Google Nexus 7 tablet now live on the Google Play store. Aside from the storage space each model comes with, the rest of the specs for each model of the Nexus 7 tablet are identical. The rest of the hardware specs are:

– 1 GB RAM
– Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
– Tegra 3 quad-core chipset
– NFC (Android Beam)
– 4325 mAh (Up to 8 hours of active use)
– 7” 1280×800 HD display (216 ppi)
– 1.2MP front-facing camera

As we mentioned above, the only difference between the two models is the storage space that comes with each one. The Nexus 7 tablet with 8GB of storage will run you the previously rumored price of $199.00 while the Nexus 7 tablet with 16GB of storage will set you back $249.00. Once again both Nexus 7 tablets are currently only available for US residents right now. Orders will ship out in Mid-July.
