Google's first tablet is edging ever closer to market, and new images suggest that the 7-inch Nexus could offer good looks as well as an affordable price tag.

PhoneArena claims to have received the first images of the Google tablet, and these seem to highlight that the tablet has a glossy white front and a two-tone back cover, with Asus branding across the rear of the device.

There also appears to be two cameras on-board, as well as an earpiece at the top of the device which could hint at the tablet being some kind of ‘phablet’ device, like Samsung’s 5-inch Galaxy Note.

This news adds to the increasing likelihood that the Google tablet will launch at some point next month, with recent rumors proposing that the device could debut at Google’s I/O developer conference.

The Nexus tablet is believed to have a 7-inch display, offer 1GB of RAM and feature Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 chipset. There has also been some debate as to whether the tablet – which is expected to sell for $200 – will run Jelly Bean (or Android 5.0), although PhoneArena's source says that the tablet will arrive with Android 4.1.
