Google Nexus tablet confirmed by anonymous tipster, coming at end of June

A representative of the computer manufacturing company ASUS has revealed Google will be announcing a Nexus branded tablet at the end of June.

The anonymous representative revealed very little details about the tablet but was quoted saying “it [the tablet] will be awesome”. After much research I was unable to confirm or deny that a Nexus tablet will be made, aside from this anonymous tip. What we do know is that Google has been talking about a Nexus tablet for some time now. We also know that a Nexus tablet appeared on a benchmarking website called Rightware; and Google’s ex-CEO Eric Schmidt has been promising a Google tablet will be coming out soon.

The results and information about the tablet from Rightware give us limited details on the Nexus tablet:

  • The screen will be 7 inches
  • Resolution of 1280 pixels by 768 pixels
  • NVidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz
  • NVidia ULP GeForce GPU
  • Android OS 4.1 “Jelly Bean”

Based on its screen size, the device is going competition for 7 inchers like Galaxy Tab 7 and Kindle Fire. Other than that, we don’t know much else about the tablet but it surely won’t disappoint.

    @MikeR: Im actually with you there. I prefer 10 inchers over 7 inchers, for the same reasons you mention. But I may make an exception for a Nexus tablet. Plus you have to keep in mind Google is taking aim at Kindle Fire and Amazon’s use of Google’s OS without paying Google a dime.

    BTW How is that SGS3? I wish I had one.

    Seven inches??? Puh-leeze. Don’t make me laugh. I’ll stick to an acceptable tablet size (that of my existing Asus Transformer) and my Samsung Galaxy III. A 7-inch tab isn’t pocketable and it’s hardly worth viewing a DVD or YouTube video on in comparison to similar non-pocketable 10.2″ screens. A 4.2 inch (and upwards) smartphone display is fine and has the pocketability a 7 inch tab doesn’t have even if the viewing experience is not, nor cannot be, the same as a 10.2 inch tab.
