Google Nexus 7 Tablet: Details and Render Leaked
Rumors have been floating around since a long time, about a Nexus-branded tablet from Google, which will be manufactured by ASUS to compete against the hugely-successful Kindle Fire and today the Google Nexus tablet (aka Nexus 7) reportedly shows its pre-rendered face, packing a 1280×800 IPS display, 1.3Ghz quad core Tegra 3 processor, 12-core GeForce ULP processor, 1 Gigabyte of RAM, NFC, WiFi and ofcourse, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Google is expected to unveil it’s Nexus tablet at Google I/O 2012, which is scheduled to start on June 27. Folks at Gizmodo Australia got their hands on a nsupposed training document that discloses significant information about the tablet. The document also reveals that the tablet will come with Google Wallet and it will cost you $199 for the 8GB model and $249 for the 16 GB model. The tablet will first launch in Australia (which is pretty weird as it’s a Google device and should launch in US first) and international release will follow quickly.
If the pricing and details are true, then the Nexus tablet is all set to take over Kindle Fire, the first tablet to make a dent on Apple’s iPad and other rivals. Because it’s a Nexus device, it will allow Google to directly send updates to the device, which means you don’t have to wait for carriers or the manufacturer to deliver the update.
We will get to know more about this tablet later this week, assuming Google takes the wraps off this tablet at the I/O conference.
