Google may be silent about its latest tablet until Wednesday for the Google I/O but rumors keep on buzzing about the Google Nexus 7. The name may just be in the rumor mill but the techworld is quite frenzied about its design. It even has a nearly-complete set of specs this time around.
On the contrary of having Samsung as Google’s Nexus manufacturer, it bids Asus to have this 7-inch slate that will run in a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor, Ge-Force 12-core GPU and 1GB of RAM with 8GB and 16 GB storage options.
The screen will be having an IPS Display (1280 x 800p) with 178-degree viewing angle. It also boasts its capability for having NFC technology (Google Wallet), Android Beam and a 1.2 megapixel front facing camera.
What’s more interesting is that this tablet might be the first recipient of the Android Jelly Bean. Google may not be clear about the version yet but I guess it will root for just the 4.1 version. As I said earlier, the things will not be clear until the Google I/O conference come this Wednesday.
And what I am more excited about is how the powerhouse of Google will handle the already laid-out cards of Apple’s iOS 6 and the recently announced Microsoft SurfaceTablet and Windows 8. But for now, we just have to settle for rumored Google Nexus 7 specs below.
