7-inch Nexus tablet ends up on hardware benchmark site with Android 4.1
Details: A tablet checked in at Rightmark for a test recently, bearing Android version 4.1, or “Jelly Bean,” and code named “Grouper,” which keeps with Google’s naming of Nexus test devices after fish. More so, the device is nicknamed the “Nexus 7,” implying a 7-inch screen, keeping with the upcoming Nexus tablet rumors. And all the internals (Nvidia quad-core processor and GPUS) match up with expectations.
Likelihood: Pretty high. I’ve seen a number of Android devices show up on benchmark sites before launch, and they often pan out to be true. And Android Police, among other Android sites, is seeing devices checking into their web servers with Android 4.1 listed as the OS.
Get excited?: An interesting play, isn’t it? A small tablet that seems really powerful. Now let’s see if it plays Netflix and Hulu out of the box.
