New Nexus 7 to beat iPad mini with July release?

No price cuts here though
The second generation Nexus 7 may be arriving a lot sooner than we expected, with new information that the 7-inch tablet is expected to retail in July surfacing.
However, it's reported that the 16GB version of the new tablet will be priced at $229 (£146, AU$239), putting it a fair bit above the current Nexus 7 price of $199 (also £199).
Good old Digitimes is reporting the details, so get involved with the requisite serving of salt alongside the speculation - but we've been expecting the new Nexus 7 to arrive showing off a full HD display and those new reported price points make it seem more likely than ever.
Have you been working out?
On top of the HD, we're expecting the Nexus 7 successor to have slimmed down a tad and come with a narrower bezel.
But with a higher price, can the new Nexus 7 deter people waiting for Asus' recently-unveiled MeMo Pad HD 7, which will offer a lot of Nexus 7 features in a much more affordable HD package when it touches down a month after?
