Nexus 7 refresh due soon

Lots of leaked info out now about the new X phone (see upcoming post on it), new updates to Google Map app, Google has had a busy week. But wait, there's more (Steve Jobs tip of hat!), new leaked info and images have surfaced on the new Nexus 7. Already the darling of the tablet world, this new info shows that Google went all out in refreshing this powerhouse tablet.

With so many places to begin this, lets get the specs out of the way. Pretty much in line with the current version the latest incarnation of the tablet will have the same 16 Gig to 32 Gig options. The newest leak also points toward July 20th availability at Office Max at $269.99. The processor is rumored to be the Qualcom Snapdragon S4 and the big upgrade to 4 Gig of ram (we hope this is real)! Under new additions add the 1.2 mega pixel front camera and the 1.5 mega pixel camera on the back (yes fans they listened)! 
As far as aesthetics, it's obviously thinner than the current model and man look at those lines! It appears to have a bezel to bezel display so you gamers have more real estate to play with ( or more girth for movies). I'm sure the closer we get to the 20th more details emerge the main thing on the watch list is if the 4 gig of ram holds true, also do we get SD card on this round? Any way you slice it, I plan on getting one! What do you think? Think It lives up to it's predecessor?
