Some might wonder why Google went with the older Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU but it most probably has to do with keeping the cost down. From what we have seen the tablet still will be speedy so it should not be a problem.

The price of the new tablet is:  $230 (16GB), $270 (32GB), $350 (32GB, WiFi + mobile data). The LTE version will work for ATT, Verizon and T-Mobile, all in One SKU.

The new Nexus 7 will be available end of June in the US and “soon after” in selected other markets.
