What with the Nexus 7 being days old already it must be time for the speculation regarding the next Nexus device, right? (Oh and before you yell at me, yes that is just an image of the Nexus 7.)

It’s becoming increasingly clear that we’re going to hear, see, and maybe even touch a Nexus 7 tablet when Google I/O 2012 kicks off next week. Supposedly, we don’t even have to wait until then to see what kind of camera that new Android tablet will sport. An image posted to Picasa contains EXIF data containing “Nexus 7″ in the model field. No big deal; EXIF data could be faked and used to troll a bunch of snoopy tech bloggers, right? Sure, but that’s probably not what’s happening here.
