It is no secret that last Sunday a device which appeared to be a Nexus 8 tablet was spotted on Google's official Android KitKat website, but the fact that this "error" was not fixed in a timely manner is quite a surprise.

Since the unknown slate was not replaced in a few hours after its appearance on Android.com, the next logical move would have been an official announcement to confirm its addition to the Nexus family of Android powered devices.

Unfortunately this week did not bring the anticipated official confirmation of the 8-inch Nexus Android tablet. Now, despite the fact that the LG-V510 already got its Bluetooth Certification and most sources see it as the Nexus 8, Google silently removed the 8-inch slate from the "Apps and Entertainment" page of  Android.com and replaced it with a Nexus 7 2013.

In the image above, the Nexus 8 is the one in the left, while its replacement (the latest edition of Nexus 7) is the one in the right side of the screen. The differences can be easily spotted by looking the the bezel of the two tablets.

Considering all the above, it can be said that the Nexus 8 is being delayed at this time. We only need to wait for Google to officially announce this Android tablet. When will that happen, it remains to be seen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
