Start64!After Apple’s WWDC, the next big thing in tech will certainly be Google’s I/O conference, scheduled to take place on June 25-26. - The event will most likely be the platform for the unveiling of anticipated new products. We speculated a while back that this might be the perfect time for Google to roll out the Chromebook Pixel 2, but that’s just hopes and dreams at the moment.

Anyway, more realistically speaking, the Nexus 8 tablet is almost certainly one of the new devices we’re going to see Google put on display before our eyes.

The slate has been one of the most intensely debated topics in the tech field for months. For starters, the Nexus 8 is Google’s first attempt at 8-inch tablets. Additionally, the device should arrive with a 64-bit processor and be manufactured by another hot mobile tech player, HTC.

In anticipation of the big event, the guys over at Gforgames (via MyDrivers) have managed to stumble upon a pretty interesting finding. They have posted a duo of photographs allegedly portraying the upcoming tablet, equipped with a protective shell.
