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.

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.
we reported on NVIDIA's KAI Platform and that they hoped to bring some $200 Tegra 3 tablets to market soon, but today while listening in on the NVIDIA Analyst Day we learned some good news. NVIDIA isn't just planning cheaper quad-core tablets, they are already in the works and on their way to the market as we speak.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
"Nexus Tablet" could begin production as soon as April and go on sale in May, anonymous sources now claim that the device has been pushed back for a July release. The reasoning? They're doing some tweaks to the internal hardware - which, by the way, is still a complete unknown - to lower the price. The tablet was already expected to retail for $200 or less to compete with the popular reader-tablets on the market right now.
