Nexus 8 possibly leaked on Android website

The Nexus 8 tablet may have just been leaked on the Android wbesite. If you go to the Apps & Entertainment promotional page on the site and scroll two-thirds of the way down the screen, you can see a woman sitting at a table and holding a tablet that appears to be about eight inches long. The Verge points out that Google never shows "generic" photos of devices that don't exist, leading us to believe the tablet may very well be the company's next big hardware move.
