BriefMobile had put up a video some days back which has been getting a lot of views despite it being just a 5 second video showing what maybe the Google Nexus 10-inch tablet. Again, this just tends to give more substance to the rumours. It has been code-named Manta.

According to a leak, the Nexus 7 is priced at $250 for the 32GB model whereas the 16GB model is retailing for $200.
