Google's 7in Jelly Bean Android tablet spied in benchmark
Asus made, Nvidia inside
Google's Asus-made 7in tablet has turned up in web-posted benchmark results. It's running Android 4.1.
Rightware's Powerboard benchmark ties into an online database Android fans can use to compare kit performance. Fansite Android Police spotted a listing for the "Google Asus Nexus 7" , an Nvidia Tegra 3-based tablet running at 1.3GHz.
It has a screen resolution of 1280 x 768 if you needed a further indication that this is a 7in boy.
Further info: the Nexus 7 is codenamed 'Grouper' and that Android 4.1 reference and its build number, JRN51B - Jelly Bean, in other words.
It could, of course, be a fake. The data confirms much of what has leaked out about Google's tablet plans - its emphasis on the low end, hence 7in; its partnership with Asus; a Q2-Q3 introduction - but then that information could just as easily have been used to fool the benchmark result filing system.
Still, with the device now expected to appear in June , final testing and benchmarking could plausibly be exposed in a benchmark. ®
