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.
