Google's Asus-made 7in tablet has turned up in web-posted benchmark results. It's running Android 4.1. Rightware's Powerboard benchmark ties into an online database Android fans can use to compare kit performance.

Google's Asus-made 7in tablet....

This should read Google's Asus-rebranded 7in tablet.

It's actually funnier than that since Asus also outsources most of their production to Pegratron (they spinned off their manufacturing some time ago)

Is this another update that might or might not be rolled out to us, which might or might not be available on new handsets which might or might not have the promise of an upgrade which might or might not be delayed so your phone provider can add extra crapware?

Except that Google don't rebrand any of their Nexus devices- the actual manufacturers logo always appears on the casing - and usually its bigger than Google's.

Nice try though.

Re: Yet another...

Absolutely. Why can't Android be like the personal computer market? You know, the one where everyone uses the same sound chip, graphics chip, screen resolution, aspect ratio, operating system, memory, processor...

If all those were different on every pc made these days, the personal computer would never have been so popular....

Did you send that from your iPad?

Like the iPad3 retina display you mean.... ooooppps...

If you are going to hang off every word Apple says, at least do it in the privacy of your own home, and not on the Internet where people make you look foolish.

And I bet zillions of others will too, at that price, quality and most significant of all - freedom.

7in and screen res of 1280x768? sounds perfect so far!

16:10

1280 x 768 is 16:9. Perfection is 16:10.

Why 16:10?

Re: 16:10

No, 1280x768 is 16:9.6 ... I suspect they actually mean 1280x800 (16:10) or 1366x768 (16:9) because I've never seen a panel that was actually 1280x768. Let's hope it's the former.

I still actually prefer 4:3 ...

1280x768 is actually 15:9 (5:3).

Pixels are not necessarily square...

...and if someone wants to make a panel that is 16:10 and has a resolution of 2048x32, then they can. It'd just be a bit shit, is all.

Why is there the assumption that 7 inch equates to low end? Maybe some people (like those who spent £600 on the HTC Flyer when it first came out- and that definitely doesn't feel low rent) don't want a 10 inch.

Or perhaps you're confusing it with the Ainol Elf and the plethora of cheap foreign 7 inch tablets?

Infact feeling for anyone that bought a 7in tablet.

This seems like a stonking 7in deal.

No Google Play store and a battery life that could be described as "awful".

Yes it can probably be rooted, modded, have a dodgy Google Play APK installed, whatever, however it's not exactly iPad-easy is it?

Still, at £80 I guess it's a techie's plaything. Just not much cop as a general public plaything.

Re: Infact feeling for anyone that bought a 7in tablet.

At 5th the price of an ipad, who cares. This one has capacite touchscreen, Android 4, reasonable hardware specs, and clearly several pegs above the usual sub £100 supermarket tablet shite. However ANY Android tablet is by default more usable that an iPad, which has a basic interface that hasn't changed for 4 years and looks more akin to something that came out of the ark.

Re: Infact feeling for anyone that bought a 7in tablet.

A 5th the price of the iPad, yes. However the battery life is quoted as "4 hours", which you can divide by 4 to get a more realistic picture of the battery life while actually doing anything. There is also no Google Play, which is an almost criminal omission bearing in mind Currys' target market.

Yes, you can find a dodgy APK. No, my mother wouldn't even know what that is. And yes, everybody regardless of technical expertise, would probably be pissed off when the lights went out barely an hour or so after charging it up.

It's a nice techie toy, as I said. I just wouldn't buy it for anybody not a propellorhead.

SEVEN INCHERS - Win, Win, Win, Win!

Not to big for the male pocket; or the female purse; right-sized for car/truck dashboards or sun-visors and motorcycle mounting. Not too small to view a movie.

Plain Android without icing making it eligible for fast upgrades from Google. Freedom to run any App you choose to.

Manufactured by ASUS who have proven adept at making netbooks that can withstand the rough and tumble of school-aged children (and my wife) backed by a world-wide support network.

Finally the price - on a par with Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.

sigh

I'm still waiting for a proper Android 4.0 ARM netbook with a ten inch screen and a much better battery than the Atom crap that was peddled out a few years ago. I don't know why someone like Asus hasn't brought one of these out. I know they've got the transformer, but it's too expensive and I don't want the tablet / touch screen features
