We have been passing on details of more and more rumors lately about a Google Nexus tablet from Asus and today another clue has emerged which points to the Google Nexus 7 tablet being real. There’s a huge amount of interest in the possibility of a Nexus tablet and Android enthusiasts are keenly waiting for more news.
Previously we’ve told of the widespread rumors of this tablet and recently there was another positive sign when an Asus rep at Computex talked about how the company was working with Google on a device to be released in late June and shown at the Google I/O developer’s conference. Specs and features that have been mentioned so far, although of course not yet official, include a 7-inch display with 720p resolution, a quad-core NVIDIA processor and also the possibility of the next Android mobile operating system, Jelly Bean, in the form of Android 4.1 or 5.0.
The new pointer that the Google Asus Nexus 7 tablet is in fact coming stems from EXIF data embedded in an image that showed up on Picasa. The actual photo itself is not exciting at all, just a shot of a ceiling at 1280 x 960 resolution, which Android Central points out is probably from a front-facing camera. However the fact that the EXIF data shows “Nexus 7” certainly hints that the tablet is in existence and so could certainly be shown a Google’s I/O.
Thankfully Google’s I/O conference is not too far away, starting on June 27 through June 29 in San Francisco but until then we think this news will please many Android enthusiasts eager to hear more. Conjecture has it that the Nexus 7 tablet will be released priced at between $200 and $250 but of course that is not yet official. We shall be bringing you much more news on the Google Nexus tablet as we hear it.
