Google Gizmodo Australia claims to have a training document which details the rumoured Google Nexus tablet. It's built by Asus, 7", 1280x800, 1.3Ghz Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, GeForce '12-core' GPU (whatever the heck that means). The 8GB variant will be $199, the 16GB one $299. It looks quite decent, and will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Interestingly, the document also states that going forward, Google will take care of Android updates directly - however, it's not made clear if that's for this device only, or for all Android devices. The "going forward" bit would suggest all devices, but as much as I hope so, it seems unlikely.

Neither CPU nor GPU put it ahead of last year's iPad...

Actually the tegra 3 has a faster CPU than Apple's A5X, while the A5X has a faster GPU.

The A5X also has a lot more memory bandwidth than the Tegras, all of which are limited to a single 32-bit memory channel. ;) For all the graphics know-how that Nvidia has, they are really limiting/hampering/hobbling their mobile graphics solutions. Even at 1.6 GHz, with DDR3-1066 memory, the Tegra3 GPU is slow. ;) Just check out the benchmarks for the Asus Transformer Infinity (1900x1200 resolution @ 10.1") at PowerVR GPUs runs circles around the Tegras.
