It’s also interesting to see that these Google Nexus tablets will be equipped with 7-inch screen, the similar screen size that is adopted on Android’s popular tablet made by Amazon, Kindle Fire, which also has 7-inch screen. Moreover, according to rumor, if this Google tablet is priced around $150 - $250, then Kindle Fire has another new contender, besides Samsung GALAXY Tab 7 inches and the rumored 7-inch iPad Mini.
The Google’s I/O conference will be held on July 27, so the rumors regarding the launch of 5 Nexus devices and Google tablet are expected to get the answers from Google itself at the event.
7-inch Google Nexus Tablet Revealed, Will Use Quad-core and Allegedly Injected with Jelly Bean OS
Although it’s been floating around as just another uncertain rumor, it looks like the speculation regarding the launch of 7-inch Google-branded Nexus tablet in the upcoming months, will soon become more and more real in implementation. According to the source at TechnoBuffalo, the Google tablet that is predicted to be called as “Nexus”, indeed, is heading to the open gate of tablet market anytime soon.
Previously, we have been made positive sure that the assembler of this
Nexus tablet will be Asus and the launch date will be sometime around June, specifically on June 27th when the Google’s I/O conference is held. Now another rumor, actually, 2 uncertain rumors are about to float again on each corner of tech gadget industry.
Besides, many analyst were really sure that the Jelly Bean of Android would arrive until late fall or early winter. But who knows, since Google is the one that is responsible with this tablet, maybe this “Nexus” tablet will get special treatment than other Android counterparts.
Anyway, the second rumor also has it that this Google tablet reportedly will be planted with quad-core Tegra3. This obviously contradicts with the previous expectations of many people that in order to price the tablet aggressively, I mean cheaper (to challenge the $199 Kindle Fire), Google will use the dual-core processor, instead of this Tegra3 chip.
However, the maker of the chip itself, NVIDIA, always reiterates the mission of the company, which is to help bring $200 Tegra3 tablet to the market in the future. So this means there is still a possibility that the Google tablet will still be priced at low price tag, just like what Amazon does on Kindle Fire.
So until Google reveals all of its future plans at the Google I/O conference, we will need to wait patiently regarding these speculations.
Google 7-inch Tablet Will Have a Model Name "Nexus 7" and Injected with Jelly Bean
We’ve heard the rumor of the new Google-branded tablet that will be called allegedly as Nexus tablet, is on the edge of launch date or otherwise, the announcement date at the Google’s I/O event later this year. As we all know, this tablet will be assembled by Asus, it’s armed with Tegra3, it’s injected with allegedly Android Jelly Bean OS, it has 7-inch screen, and it’ll be priced aggressively cheaper to challenge the $199 Kindle Fire tablet from Amazon. And now the speculation is starting to sound much clearer this time because more other extra leaks just arrived lately to the gadget industry.
According to the leaked benchmark info, this Google-branded tablet will have a model name “Nexus 7”. This Android tablet will be equipped with 768x1280 pixel resolution on its screen. And just like what has been rumored before, this Nexus 7 tablet will run on Android version 4.1.
It’s even showed in the software info of this tablet that the tablet is labeled as “JRN51B”, which has something to do with the Jelly Bean OS because it has the letter “J” in it. And based on the Google history in naming its previous Android versions, this will surely add reliability to the rumor.
So here you go. Even though the rumor of this Google tablet is becoming much stronger and real, we still have to be patient to wait until Google reveals this all at the upcoming Google I/O event.
But honestly, it’s interesting to see that Kindle Fire now has 2 new friends, this Asus Nexus 7 tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch and the rumored iPad Mini. I believe this is when the innovation in the 7-inch tablet market starts.
