The Nexus 7 is one of the most affordable tablets out there at just $199, but it looks like ASUS is already hard at work at on an even more affordable device. According to a recent GLBenchmark entry, ASUS is testing a device with a 1GHz ME1727 ASUS processor. It also packs the Mali-400 GPU, which is the same one found in Samsung’s Exynos 4 chip. The resolution of the display is a disappointing 1024 x 600.
It seems likely that ASUS is at least testing a device with these specs, but whether it will every be released remains to be seen.
Would you go with a $99 Nexus tablet with these specs or a $199 model with much better internals?
