Google reveals Nexus 8 tablet on Android 4.4 KitKat site?

Google Nexus 8 tablet?

Google has just launched the Nexus 5 smartphone and might have shown off a Nexus 8 tablet.

Along with the Nexus 5 release, Google launched the latest version of Android, 4.4 KitKat. On Google's promotional site for the new mobile operating system is a photo of a woman holding a tablet which might be the Nexus 8.

Another image on the page clearly shows the 2013 model of the Nexus 7 but the other one, shown above, has a tablet which looks similar but definitely different to Google's budget tablet. It looks like it has a larger screen and certainly has slimmer bezels at the top and bottom than the current Nexus 7.

Google launched the Nexus 5 last week with no sign of a new Nexus 10 model so perhaps this will be the replacement, or perhaps it's just a render of a device that doesn't exists. We can't say for sure but we will keep an eye on the situation and let you know if we hear of any developments.
