Back on the 6th of this month, a rendering of what was suppose to be the Google/ASUS Nexus tablet surfaced online, most sites jumped at the chance to say it was the real deal, we however, did not. Now here we are, only two days away from Google I/O, where the tablet is suppose to be shown off to the world, and we have yet another photo/rendering. This time around, the device actually does appear to be something that ASUS would produce (as in, it’s not a photoshopped Galaxy Note/Galaxy S III/HTC hybrid).
The image above comes to us from Gizmodo (Australia), who says they got the image from a “training document” and that the device will sport some pretty decent specs, like a 7-inch 1280×800 IPS-based LCD display, a powerful Tegra 3 quad-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera with a 1.2 front-facing camera for video chatting. There may even be two different storage sizes, an 8GB or 16GB model. It looks like Google is going to continue to push Google Wallet with the Nexus tablet, as it will feature an NFC chip, like the Galaxy Nexus.
Rumors right now point to the device costing about $199 for the 8GB model and $249 for the 16GB alternative. Even with all this, we still remain skeptics on the rendering, however, if we were to pick one that we’ve seen so far, this one definitely leads the pack. As far as the old one (the Galaxy Note/HTC rendering) hate to say it, but we told you so!
