Up until now, most of the reports regarding the Google Nexus Tablet have been rumors and whispers based on people in the industry. Today, the Google Nexus Tablet showed up in an online benchmark test and reveals information that confirms previous speculation as well as ignite new speculation.
To begin, the Google Nexus 7 will feature a 7 inch display with a 1280×768 resolution and the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. Google is looking to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire with its 7 inch display, but hopes that increased processing power will be a hit with the tech crowd.
On a more interesting note, the code “JRN51B” shows up in the build number implying it will launch with Android 4.1, also known as Android Jelly Bean. Of course, much of this information is coming from the benchmark test, which could have been fabricated, but much of the information is falling nicely in line with previous rumors.
The Google Nexus 7 Tablet is expected to be announced by Google at the I/O developer conference in late June. According to an earlier report, it won’t launch until July with a possible $199 price tag.
