Just as Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) unveiled its new Nexus 5 smartphone, speculation is now turning to a couple of possible tablets Big G might still have up its sleeve. Nexus 10 inventory was exhausted last week, suggesting that an update is imminent. On top of that, an inventory listing for a new model has been spotted that could be made by Asus, the same OEM that makes the Nexus 7.
Furthermore, a product mockup has also been spotted on the Android homepage showing an unknown tablet that doesn't match any existing offerings. The small tablet fits in one hand and has smaller bezels than the Nexus 7, and it could easily be a Nexus 8. Apple has shown with the iPad Mini that 8-inch devices can be quite compelling, and it's smart for Google to address this market.
If all of these rumors come to fruition, Google could have a Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 8, and Nexus 10 all available in time for the holidays this year.
