Google Asus Nexus 7 tablet seen on benchmark site

Google Asus Nexus 7 tablet seen on benchmark site
With rumors circulating that Google's 7 inch Nexus tablet to be made by Asus would rollout in July, a very interesting device was spotted on the Rightware Benchmark site. None other than the Google Asus Nexus 7 was put up for testing on the site with the code name grouper. The specs on the device included a 7 inch display (thus the 7 in the name of the device) with resolution of 1280 x 768. Under the hood was a quad-core 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 and running the show was the JRN51B build of Android 4.1, which could be a Jelly Bean flavored Android OS build.

Google expects to initially order 600,000 units from Asus and for the year that figure should be 2 million to 2.5 million tablets. The competition is the Amazon Kindle Fire and if all of those rumors prove prescient, the mini-version of the Apple iPad. The latter is supposed to offer a 7.85 inch screen while the former has a 7 inch display.

Thus far, the Google Asus Nexus 7 tablet is number 11 on the Benchmark results list with a score of 18. The top tablet, with a score of 32, is the Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus, GT-P6200. It looks like May 14th was the first date that the Google Asus Nexus 7 showed up on the Benchmark site and has been tested every day since. Don't be out off by the lackluster benchmark score. First of all, this is a device that is going to compete on price. Furthermore, there still could be some tweaks necessary before the device launches.

As long as it doesn't have that name I am ok with it. When are companies going to start going with simpler names. It makes it a lot easier for average consumers to distinguish.
