An image posted on a Chinese forum showed a Google Nexus 7 device smoking while it was being charged using the original charger from the factory. Due to this, the insides of the device were practically torched making the device an overpriced paperweight.

This may not have been what the company had in mind when it wanted to release a smoking-hottablet into the market. Some industry watchers consider this more of a problem in the electrical grid of a country rather than a problem with the Google Nexus 7 tablet itself. But with a number of reports that showed overheating and malfunctioning devices, there may be some credence to the story that there may have been something wrong with the Google Nexus 7 tablet itself.

However, this bad luck for the Chinese user of the Google Nexus 7 tablet appears to turn out for the best since Asus is reportedly giving the user more than a replacement to the damaged device. In addition to the device that was supposedly damaged due to some problems with its charging mechanism, the company will supposedly offer the user a set of Google Glasses for free.

The story itself does not sit well with some industry watchers although if it is accurate, then there is a possibility that a number of Google Nexus 7 tablet users may find ways in “accidentally” torching their own units in order to get a pair of Google glasses for free.
