Since May, there has been much talk about Google developing its own tablet as a showcase to demonstrate the latest and best innovations that its Android platform is capable of.

Now from Australia, we have what is alleged to be the leaked details of the much talked about device that is said to have come from training materials for the device.

The Nexus Tablet (not its official name) looks to be a 7-inch device that’s apparently built by ASUS. The device is expected to make its global debut at the Google I/O developer conference scheduled to happen this week and here are the unconfirmed specifications:

  • 7-inch 1280×800 IPS Display with a 178-degree viewing angle
  • Android Jelly Bean
  • 1.3GHz Quad-Core Tegra 3 CPU
  • NVidia GeForce 12-core GPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB / 16GB Internal Storage
  • 1.2MP Front Camera
  • 9 Hours Battery Life
  • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
  • Android Beam NFC
  • Google Wallet support

The Nexus Tablet is expected to cost US$199 for the 8GB version and US$249 for the 16GB version. The hardware isn’t groundbreaking which means that the next iteration of the Android OS, right now only known as Jelly Bean, will have to be awesome to make up for what the hardware lacks.

Of course all of this is unconfirmed so don’t get too excited just yet. Google I/O is happening on June 27-29 in San Francisco, USA. Stay tuned as we bring you the developments on the Nexus Tablet and Android Jelly Bean in the days to come.

Another iPad wannabe

Nothing beats the user friendliness of iOS. Android feels so hard to use and drains battery two times faster than iOS.


    I'm an Android man but I have to agree with him. I own HTC Desire HD and Galaxy Tab 10.1 while my bro own iPhone4 and iPad2. iP4 is certainly out of the league but his iPad is impressive. iPad are certainly much more polished than Android tablet (much more smoother and user friendly).

    I hope this tablet will be the turning point for Android tablet.I wouldn't mind get rid of GT10.1 for this tablet.


    If you mean user friendly interface, IOS has been left behind a long time ago. Its actually quite clumsy , just to turn off wifi and brightness, you need to go thru multiple steps and THAT home button which on my phone is beginning to malfunction. And what about the multitask function? Its a joke.
    I have an ipad2, iphone 4 and N9 and I can say the Harmattan UI is the most pleasurable to use. Windows(and phone) 8 looks very promising. Of course I am not willing to abandon IOS because I have too much invested in the ecosystem but you should try other OS for a period of time before commenting.


      "And what about the multitask function? Its a joke."? What do you mean by this?
      I'm curious to know and by the way i'm an Android user. 🙂


        The fact is IOS does not do real multitasking like your Windows 7 or Mac OS X. When you double press the home button, a row of icons pops up showing the most recently used apps. Confusingly these icons are not list of "active" apps. Its a long story and the following link may hopefully help you understand more. http://www.macworld.com/article/1164616/how_ios_m…

        The two mobile OSes that I know that are true multitasking are symbian and meego. Android up to Gingerbread is not but I'm not sure about Ice Cream sandwich,
