Asus employee allegedly reveals Nexus 7 successor specs

An Asus employee has potentially revealed, through the Asus Live Chat Support service, the specifications for the next Nexus 7 tablet codenamed "K009". The employee revealed the specifications to an "eager" fan who wanted to know when the tablet might be available to the public, which the employee stated might be before the end of July.

According to this employee, who was quoting an internal and unconfirmed specifications list, the Nexus 7 successor will have a 7-inch "LED" (presumably LED-backlit LCD) display with an impressive resolution of "1980 x 1200" (probably actually 1920 x 1200). The device will apparently be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset or a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chipset with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.

Other specs listed include a 5 MP rear camera, the yet-to-be-announced Android 4.3, a 4,000 mAh battery, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC and LTE radios. Whether or not these specifications are true remains to be seen, but if the tablet is to be released before the end of July then an announcement must be just around the corner.

Is it me, or does this conversation with the employee feel really unprofessional? He just forwarded internal information because he thought the person he was talking to was eager to know.

Man, I wish this happened to Microsoft

can I get a windows tablet with same specs and price?

yes, but it will sell without Windows RT or 8 because the price alone.

I wonder why we can't get Atom based Windows 8 tablets for the same price of Atom based netbooks? netbooks have keyboards compared to touchscreens in tablets

there is no reason . just manufacturers not wanting to. It would be cheaper to do then netbooks because of no keyboard being required.

A netbook has more internal space to use, parts don't have to be minimal size and you have more room to puzzle everything together.

You can get a Windows license for around the same price. A tablet would cost you around 4-5 times more.
