Official Google Asus Nexus 7 Tablet specs and images leaked

This coming Wednesday the Google I/O event kicks off in San Francisco and we are expecting the search engine giant to announce a number of goodies, which include the much rumoured Google Nexus Tablet. Today we have news of possible images and specs leaking for the device ahead of a release.

There have been a number of rumours surrounding the Google Nexus 7 Tablet in recent weeks, but today as Phandroid are reporting Gizmodo Australia has what is being claimed a training document for the Nexus 7, and it contains a number of details and specs for the upcoming device.

The device is confirmed as being manufactured by Asus that has both Asus and Nexus branding on the back of the unit, and the new tablet will be powered by Nvidia’s quad core Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.3GHz. It will also have 1GB of RAM and coming running the yet to be announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

Potential customers will have the choice of either 8GB or 16GB of built in storage, and there will be an IPS display of 1280 x 800 resolution. Other alleged features include a 1.2 megapixel front facing camera, NFC with Google Wallet and Android Beam, and nine hours of battery life. There is even pricing for the device with the 8GB version costing $199, and the 16GB version at $249.

If this pricing and spec list is correct Asus and Google could have a big hit on their hands, and also prove a serious threat to the Amazon Kindle Fire. Obviously this is only rumours and until Google officially announces the device it has to be taken with the usual pinch of salt, but a quad core tablet running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at this price will surely sell like hot cakes.

Would you buy a Nexus tablet at this price?

    I agree it must have a micro sd slot! Then i’ll get the 8gb version…50 dollars extra does not really justify 8 more gigabytes >.<

      It does with any system past 2.2 Froyo. Difficult to store apps on sd card from gingerbread and honeycomb. So you really need extra internal storage if you have bloatware like Galaxy Tab 2 7. With that model you only have 4.3gb after you bootup on those things. You can’t uninstall Samsungs factory bloat. FROYO allows apps to sd, but not after that version.
