HTC M7 is the Taiwanese company upcoming flagship device and supposedly a replacement for the One X. Has now a rendered image.
The rendered image looks strikingly similar to the BlackBerry L-series device that we have seen in the past, which itself sort of looks like the iPhone 5. The display is flanked by two colored plastic portions on the top and the bottom. Both areas have a rather pronounced grille area, with the top also housing the front facing camera and the various sensors. Unfortunately, this is the only picture we have for now.
The specs, as we had learned before, include a 4.7-inch, 1920 x 1080 resolution display with an incredible 468 ppi pixel density, 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage space, 13 megapixel, f/2.0 rear camera and 2 megapixel front facing camera with 1080p video recording.
It is being rumored that the M7 will likely be announced at Mobile World Congress this year.
The Nexus 10 stock at the Play Store was depleted pretty quickly when it launched, so it’s good to see the 10-inch Google tablet moving to other stores. Staples have it on pre-order right now, but unfortunately won’t start deliveries until two-to-three weeks.
Meanwhile, the tablet has been torn down, revealing what makes it tick (spoiler: plenty of Samsung-made parts).
Let’s look at the Staples deal first though – they only have the 32GB Nexus 10 right now and it’s priced at $499, matching the Play Store price. Deliveries are expected to start in 17-24 days, which is a pretty long wait and people might prefer to get it from the Play Store anyway.
We’ll be on the lookout for more retailers offering the Nexus 10 – just in case there are further issues with the Play Store or there‘s an extra perk. We’d appreciate a tip if you spot any deals.
The tablet gets its power from a Samsung Li-Ion battery with 9000mAh / 22.75Wh capacity. The processing power comes from a Exynos 5250 chipset and data is stored in flash memory manufactured by Samsung.

The Nexus 7 is doing pretty well sales-wise, reaching a rate of nearly a million units per month. According to the ASUS CFO David Chang, the slate is bound to do even better in the coming months.
While this definitely counts as a success for both Google and ASUS, the Nexus 7′s sales figures still remain in the shadow of the tablet king in the face of the iPad, which shipped in 14 million units in Q3 of this year.
Still, David Chang remains optimistic and here’s what he told the WSJ.
“At the beginning, it was, for instance, 500K units a month, then maybe 600, 700K. This latest month, it was close to one million.”
If anything, the steady sales of the Nexus 7 give Google confidence that its latest addition to the Nexus family, the Samsung-made Nexus 10 will share the fate of its small sibling and become a big hit with its ultra high-resolution display and extremely competitive pricing.

The 32GB version of the Google Nexus 7 tablet has been spotted yet again, this time on a store’s brochure. Just as before, the 32GB model is said to cost as much as the 16GB Nexus 7 currently, further solidifying the rumors of it being replaced.
A listing in UK retailer Argos’ Christmas Gift Guide indicates that Google and Asus will soon release a 32GB version of the Nexus 7. The tablet is labeled as costing £199.99, matching the current price of the 16GB variant in the UK.
But how soon, you ask? According to The Next Web, and its source we shouldn’t expect the 32GB model to launch in the next two weeks.
Still not convinced? The new 32GB flavor of the Nexus 7 has made yet another appearance at the Staples Advantage store, carrying a price tag of $248 (two dollars less than the $250 Google is asking for the 16GB model). The store has listed October 18 as availability date, but we’re inclined to believe this is just a placeholder.
Furthermore, upon checkout with his brand new 16GB Nexus 7 at an yet undisclosed Netherlands online store, Reddit user kingdaan was told that his order will be delayed by three weeks and that he’ll receive a 32GB Nexus 7 instead. I recon it’s worth the wait.

Reportedly, One lucky customer in Japan claims to have unexpectedly received a Google Nexus 7 loaded with more built-in storage with 32GB instead of the 16GB unit that was ordered. In top of that Google’s Jelly Bean-packing the new slate. Upon booting up his brand new Nexus 7 16GB model, the Japanese customer found out from the Settings menu that his model actually has 27GB of available storage.
The 32GB version of the Google Nexus 7 was first hinted in a listing of a major retailer, but now we have a solid evidence of the device’s existence.
