The Benchmark result site at Rightware has an interesting entry -- the Google ASUS Nexus 7. Android Police did a little digging and found some more curious info -- the device code name is grouper (which is in line with other fishy Nexus codenames), and it's got the JRN51B build of Android 4.1, which is a likely version number for JellyBean (or whatever the next Android version will be called). It falls right in line with rumors we've been hearing about the 7-inch Google tablet, and if it's going to be unveiled in a month at Google I/O it's about time to see it start cropping up on Internet logs and sites.
Speaking of which, Android 4.1 has been pinging Android Central for a little while now, so if this is true it's nice to see a version number for the next release. Let's pretend for a minute that what you see above hasn't been faked. (It's certainly easy enough but the inclusion of some kernel info helps a bit.) Plenty of questions remain. Codenames and numbers are just that. We wanna see what's behind that curtain.
