Nexus 8 is real, powered by Tegra processor, and is coming during Google I/O55
But according to MYCE, there is a Nexus 8 coming, and it is going to be pretty soon when the new 8 inch slate is revealed. The computer community site noted that it had been the recipient of several posts related to a device test named "flounder" which fits in with Google's use of fish names as code names for Nexus devices. It also dovetails perfectly with the use of the word "flounder" recently found in Google code, that might have tipped us to an HTC produced Nexus 8.
Google has removed all traces of the flounder name used in previous posts on the computer community site. More recent references are made about a Tegra processor to be used with the tablet. One post mentions that the device will be powered by a 64-bit CPU.
So with any luck, we could see the long-awaited Nexus 8 tablet, driven by a 6finally unveiled by the end of next month. More precisely, Google I/O will take place on June 25th and 26th this year
Thanks for the tip, Jan!
