    An unannounced Asus tablet has been spotted at the Bluetooth SIG apparently running an Android 4.3 version.

    The K008, a 7-inch device according to the Bluetooth SIG documentation, runs software version JWR11, which is said to be an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean build version.

    Other details are not available about the device except for this description on the site:

    The tablet features a 7″ LED-backlit capacitive multitouch screen for easy carrying and fantastic multi-media experience everywhere. Wireless networking Ensures simple connection to the Internet without wires.

    We have no idea what kind of tablet the K008 is supposed to be. Are we looking at the new Nexus 7? We can’t answer that question just yet. For what it’s worth, we’ll remind you that just recently we’ve seen the Nexus 7 hit the Bluetooth SIG again, running the same JWR11 software version. The model number of the Nexus 7 is ME370T, which is not even remotely similar to K008.

    In case you’re not confused enough, we’ll also tell you that there’s also a 10-inch Asus K008 tablet – at least that’s what the image below seem to suggest about the size of the device – that has been spotted at the FCC earlier this year.

    Considering that FCC and Bluetooth SIG documentation about the Asus K008 tablet (or tablets) is available, we can only assume that the device would be unveiled at some point in the near future.

      I have a Nexus 4. Always been Android guy. But today’s iOS7 release looks really good. If Apple can make the phone as big as Nexus 4, I am going. By no means. I am a Apple fanboy.

        Why would you leave if everything they presented is already available on your current phone? Just curious.

          It’s not. While Google is busy chasing moonshots they often fail to recognize that a little shine and interoperability is key to customer satisfaction (e.g. Google talk, hangouts, hangout, voice,…)

            Hangouts is fixing this “issue”. I don’t really think you are looking at this objectively. Android has been far better at not only innovating but also listening to the consumer (adding requested features). Apple has only made this major move because they are almost in the same boat as RIM (oh wait, BlackBerry). Their change only confirms what their falling stocks, bad reviews, and customer complaints have all affirmed… they are lagging far behind and if they hadn’t moved, they would soon sink.

            But hey, if you want an iPhone, it’s your business. I don’t have an issue with that at all. I even had one back in the day. Good day to you sir.
