I think if this was true, it would be a great move. I was recently shopping around for tablets and as much as I liked the Nexus 7, I was more drawn to the Galaxy Tab 3 based on the 8" size. I currently have a 10" tablet, and I think that 8" seems to be just the right size. Anyway, I didn't buy anything and went away wishing they would come out with a Nexus 8. Sounds like my wish may come true.

In addition to Tom's lack of editing the article before posting...users should also learn the proper use of "your" "you're"...

While a 8" screen on roughly the same footprint as the N7 by thinning out bezels would be nice, the image does appear to be a photoshop job: the real image components have very noisy/grainy look while the screen is perfectly clean with absolutely no gloss from the glass... apart from the bit of fake-looking highlight at the top.

It would be a day one buy for me. My N7 is great, but it is kinda too small for me when viewing website and movies. It gets the job done but I just need something a little bit bigger. 7.9-8.9 inch device is my dream (Android).

The Nexus 5, Nexus 8 and Nexus 11 were all early year speculation and rumors.

The Nexus 5 has now been released, and if the device in this picture is real; soon the Nexus 8 will be released too. Now we just have to wait for either the Nexus 10 refresh or the Nexus 11 to come out.

Looks like a 7v2 to me... there is even a 7v2 just below that image to compare with. Every discernible detail matches.

I'm very interested in the rumored 10 inch version.
I have the N7 (2nd gen) and it's a little small for my eyes.
Hard to believe they would contradict all the release rumors by somehow retooling an 8 inch version in time for what should surely be a Holiday release target.
