Citing multiple sources in the supply chain, Taiwanese news website Digitimes reports that the Nexus 7 will have a thinner display boarder and offer an “upgraded Jelly Bean-based Android operating system to enhance integration between the software and hardware”.

The website, which has a mixed record when it comes to breaking rumors, adds that the tablet is once again the result of Google working with OEM partner Asus and believes that total Nexus 7 shipments could hit 10 million units in the year.

Since the first model was launched back in July, there have been persistent rumors that Google intends to introduce a $99 Nexus 7, but the source dismissed that notion by saying that this latest tablet will likely sell for $199 to $249.

Despite the Nexus 7's promising start to life (it was at one stage reckoned to be the second biggest tablet on the market), one recent study indicates that the 7-inch tablet trails

Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Samsung’s Galaxy Tabs and even Barnes & Noble’s Nook in the Android tablet market. Mobile app analytics firm Localytics says that the Jelly Bean tablet accounts for less than one in ten Android tablets across the globe.
