If a benchmark report out of Italy can be believed, Acer is working on a very impressive tablet. Said to house a Tegra 4 chipset, and pack a display upwards of 2560 x 1344 pixels, the device packs a punch. There is also rumored to be about 2GB RAM tucked in there, giving the muscle to keep up with just about anything.
As you can see in the picture below, the benchmark notes the device is made by Acer, and checks in at 1.8GHz. An NVIDIA GPU is mentioned, but nothing signifying that it’s the Tegra 4. Unless NVIDIA has a chipset nobody is aware of, this would have to be the Tegra 4.
If this is the successor to the Nexus 7, it packs a punch. It’s about twice as fast, and a the display resolution is Chromebook Pixel-esque. That’s a lot of power for a $200 tablet, though, so we’re not going to assume anything. Price is paramount for the Nexus lineup, and it would be hard for this to meet that sweet spot, even at cost.
None of this news is official, so we’re simply speculating at this point. For a company that has dedicated themselves to making budget-friendly devices, this seems far-fetched. Exciting, but unlikely at the same time. We’ve been surprised before, though, so who knows.

An Acer Nexus ?
Sounds nice, but for me, no stylus, no deal. Hope it has one comparable to Samsung’s Note series.
The article doesn’t even mention the device’s screen size, I guess they mean 7″ because they did mention a N7
He may have meant a spiritual successor in terms of value for money. 2560 x 1344 sounds insanely high res for a 7 inch device.
Then again who knows with the rate at which mobile tech is advancing.
Love my Acer A200, it’s a solid device. My next tablet will certainly be an Acer.
my Nexus 7 is made by Asus, not Acer; is this a case of dyslexia, or a Google switch?
I think it’s just a case of a poorly written article. I’m sure the author knew what they wanted to say but failed to communicate it effectively.
I have been really unimpressed with Acer the past couple of years. their A500 was pretty nice, but their A200 was absolutely Horrible.
i seriously doubt this is the next Nexus 7 since ASUS is probably making that….but the specs are impressive for sure.
BEST end paragraph ever, but I’m just speculating so who knows.
Asus, not acer, will make the next Nexus 7… And the Next nexus is supposed to have a snapdragon, not a tegra (Thank god).
