“Google ASUS Nexus 7″ tablet shown in benchmark running Android 4.1

Well what do we have here? Rightware's Power Board has posted a benchmark result for a previously unknown device going by the name "Google Asus Nexus 7". Based on the specifications outed - an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and a 720p resolution - this looks like it very well could be the much-rumored and long-awaited Nexus Tablet. The benchmark was run only once, but the brand in particular - simply listed as "Google" - is very promising.

Jelly Bean and Nexus Tablet rumored for Google I/O

Well, we've been assuming for months that if Google is preparing a big reveal for the much-rumored Nexus Tablet, it would be at the company's yearly developer conference, Google I/O. TechnoBuffalo is claiming information from an anonymous source (the best kind!) that says the tablet will absolutely show up at the conference, and as other rumors have indicated, ASUS will produce the hardware. New software is also rumored, though whether or not it's Android 5.0 is still in question. Note that this comes just hours after DiGiTimes reported the same thing.

Google Nexus Tablet by ASUS rumored for July release

This isn't the first time we've heard this rumor, and it certainly won't be the last. The often accurate DigiTimes has just brought this rumor back into the limelight stating that the Google Nexus quad-core tablet being manufactured by ASUS will be released in June, with market availability coming in July.

Google may use multiple hardware partners for new Nexus

If you're anything like me, than you were somewhat disappointed in the Galaxy Nexus, and hoping that Google would move on to another company for 2012's iteration of the developer device. So news that Samsung would again be making a Google-branded smartphone, and perhaps even a tablet, weren't at all encouraging. There's good news out of the Wall Street Journal, though: Google may be working with multiple hardware partners for the next version of Android, and presumably, the next round of developer devices.

Google’s return to retail: the good, the bad and the ugly

The biggest news in the Android world last week wasn't yet another faked Galaxy S III photo, or Apple's latest legal shenanigans. It was Google's return to a model that we'd all thought they had abandoned almost two years ago. Not only did the Big G start selling the Galaxy Nexus directly to consumers, it did so at a severely reduced and probably subsidized price: $399 for a no-contract, unlocked GSM superphone. And unlike Verizon's version (which still goes for $650 without a contract), it's getting the latest Android updates as they come out.

Motorola hardware division sell off by Google is unlikely

The acquisition by Google of Motorola Mobility is still not a done deal, even though it's approaching the 1 year mark since we first learned of the acquisition. Already we've started seeing tons of rumors regarding Google's plans, and recently reported Google could sell Moto's hardware division to Huawei. According to new details from DigiTimes that isn't the case and Google won't be selling any part of Motorola.

Larry Page: Google focused on cheap tablet market

Google's quarterly earnings report was a fairly bland affair this time around. Aside from a lot of financial data and a good bit of advertising back and forth, there wasn't a lot of new information to be had. But there was one nugget of dialogue that should interest any Android newshound: when asked about the Google's focus on Android tablet,s CEO Larry Page made specific mention of the lower end of the market - where the majority of Android tablets are being sold.
