Google set to announce Nexus device tomorrow

Everyone is throwing their hats in the ring, and it seems like 2012 is the year of the tablet. Google is set to announce their very own "Nexus" tablet device tomorrow at Google I/O, and despite leaks of supposed devices, the company hasn't confirmed anything yet.

However, Michael Evans did some snooping around the venue for the event and grabbed some interesting shots of the banners inside that show "Nexus" branding. Additionally, the conference will have an on-site "Google Store" which is presented by "Google Wallet." It looks like attendees may be able to pick up a device of their own on the day they are announced (unlike the still-undated Surface Tablet).

The tablet device (or devices) is expected to be the first device to run Android 4.1 (JellyBean), with the company adding it's latest dessert to Mountain View's front lawn to celebrate the release of the next major iteration of Android. The platform has yet to take the tablet world by storm, with tablet devices not selling as fast as Google would like, but perhaps this year it may see more traction.
