Asus may be cooking up another low-cost Andoid tablet

New benchmarks hint at a budget-minded Android 4.1 tablet with a 1GHz processor and a 1024×600 display.

A new tablet could be in the works from the folks who brought us the Google Nexus 7.

A few specs about the potential tablet recently popped up on benchmark site GLBenchmark.

The limited details revealed so far point to a Jelly Bean flavored tablet with a 1GHz processor, aMali 400 graphics chip, and a screen resolution of 1024×552 pixels (likely 1024×600), as described by blog site Cult of Android.

Codenamed the Asus ME172V, the new tablet doesn’t match the specs of the Nexus 7, which sports a 1,280×800 resolution and a maximum processor speed 1.3GHz. The Nexus 7 is powered by a quad-core chip. The benchmark details don’t reveal how many processors would be outfitted in this new Asus tablet.

In September, DigiTimes speculated that Asus and Google were developing a $99 Nexus tablet.

But the following month, the tech news site backtracked on those claims after sources told it that Google would instead team up with Quanta Computer to make a new budget-friendly Nexus tablet.
