Gizmodo Australia has apparently uncovered some documents relating to the soon to be launched, Nexus branded tablet, the Nexus 7. The documents call the product the Nexus 7, and have pegged it to be made by Asus and have a 7-inch, IPS display, running on a 1.3Ghz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, GeForce 12-core GPU and 1GB of RAM. The device is apparently slated to run using Android Jellybean and will come in two variants: a 8GB and 16GB. Here’s the kicker though: this particular device is slated to retail for about $199 (Php 8756) for the 8GB version and $250 (Php 11,000) for the 16GB version, making it one of the cheapest and most affordable tablets once it (eventually) hits. We’ve known that Asus would be producing this tablet for a while, with folks from Asus company complaining that it was one of their secret products that wasn’t so secret when we were in Taiwan. Once this product hits our shores, the local tablet market would be pretty shaken up, considering that a typical Android tablet nowadays retails for double the price for what this tablet is worth. Here’s to hoping that this tablet eventually surfaces once Google I/O rolls around.
