The Google I/O 2012 conference kicks off on June 27. It is expected that Google will unveil their first Google branded tablet. Gizmodo Australia has though already spilled the beans. The report is based on a leaked training document and has all the details of the Nexus 7 named tablet.
The Google Nexus 7 is a 7-inch (1,200x800px, IPS) tablet running on a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3, GeForce 12-core GPU, 1GB RAM, 8/16GB SSD, NFC, 1.2MP front facing camera, Android Jelly Bean OS and 9 hour battery life. The Asus made Nexus 7 will sell for $199 and $249 respectively. This pricing is matching the Kindle Fire. The hardware specifications sounds though much more powerful than the Kindle Fire.
If all this is true than Amazon is getting real competition here. How big the impact is for the iPad remains to be seen. It might make the iPad mini a reality sooner than later.
