Last week it was reported that Google’s next-gen Nexus 7 tablet could be going on sale in summer, and according to a new report from Digitimes, it seems that a July release could be possible, assuming of course the report is to be believed. According to Digitimes, electronics manufacturer Elan Microelectronics has begun to ship the touchscreen circuit boards which are meant for use in the new Nexus 7 tablet. Supposedly things have been moving along pretty well and this is apparently ahead of the tablet’s rumored July launch. Of course this is hardly official news, not to mention Digitimes’ track record is somewhat spotty at best. Either way with the success Google has had with the Nexus 7, we wouldn’t be surprised if the company had plans for a successor, although a question of when remains to be seen. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info and with July only a couple of months away, we won’t have to wait too long to see if this rumor pans out.

Don’t you just hate it when you try to put your earphones in your pocket, but when you pull them out they seem to have gotten themselves in a massive tangle? Well here’s a pretty nifty solution to help with cable management called Sound Pockets. As you can see in the image above, Sound Pockets is actually an iPhone case that comes with a pop-open case at the back in which you can safely stow away your earphones without having to worry about them getting tangled in your pocket. Unfortunately this does add a bit of bulk to your iPhone, but if you’re not too fussed over its bulk then we guess this case would be a pretty useful accessory. The Sound Pocket is compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 and can be yours for $35 via Sound Pocket’s website.
