Google's Nexus tablet will offer Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" OS, a
1280x800 IPS display, and will retail for less than $200, according to a source.
Gizmodo Australia obtained a 'training documen't that
reveals key details about the device.
The 7-inch tablet will be the first to run the latest version of
Android 4.1, aka Jelly Bean, according to the report. Manufactured
by Asus, the tablet will be use a 1.3Ghz quad-core Tegra 3
processor, a GeForce 12-core graphics processor, and 1GB of RAM. The
IPS (in-plane switching) display will offer a 178-degree viewing
angle with a resolution of 1280x800 pixels. The tablet will also
feature a 1.2 megapixel camera on the front and will run for 9
hours on a single battery charge, the report claims.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi a/b/g/n along with NFC support
as well as Google Wallet.
Last but not least, the 8GB model will cost $199, while the 16GB
version will ring in at $249, according to Gizmodo Australia.
Of course, the "leaked" document obtained by Gizmodo Australia could
always be a fake. We'll have to wait until next week's Google I/O
conference to learn more.
