Talks about the Google Nexus tablet have been floating around for quite some time now. While most of the rumors surrounding it is more about its probable cheap price, none has been discussed about the OS it will be running on. Some say, it will logically be running Android 5.0 Jelly Bean, the next monicker for the version of Android following Ice Cream Sandwich.
Well, it’s still going to be Jelly Bean but a result of Rightware’s Basemark ES 2.0 Taiji benchmark test of the “Nexus tablet” revealed that Jelly Bean will not be Android 5 after all but Android 4.1. What does this mean? Well, it looks like Jelly Bean is not going to be a major upgrade because if it does, it would be called Android 5.0. Still, what’s good to know is that the Nexus tablet spotted on the benchmark test has some pretty good specs under its hood. These include a 7-inch display with 1280 x 768 resolution and NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 3 processor.
The Nexus tablet will be manufactured by Asus and yes, it will be called the “Nexus 7.” Other details about the Google tablet remain to be seen. Some say that it will have a feature set that is similar to the Amazon Kindle Fire. It will also have multiple home screens with dedicated content for music, movies, books, and others. At any rate, expect to hear more about the Google Nexus 7 tablet as the upcoming Google I/O event approaches. Of course, we will bring you more juice details about this tablet as the information comes along.
