    We have another "pie in the sky" Google Nexus 8 Android tablet rumor to share with you today. This intel closely resembles the previous bit we shared here; however, this new report sheds additional light on some of the hardware details of this potential device. Here's the scoop:

    Google Nexus 8 Tablet -
    • 8-Inch Display
    • Intel Atom "Moorefield" 64-bit 2.3GHz quad-core processor with enhanced performance memory
    • PowerVR G6430 GPU
    • Android 4.5
    Supposedly, Google will announce the tablet later this year and it will be one of the first devices running their next iteration of Android, which will supposedly be 4.5. Using Intel hardware would be a substantial departure from the norm for Google, but we wouldn't put it past them. Despite this possibility, we are skeptical of this news, but thought it worth reporting.

    What do you guys think? Would you like to see an Intel powered Nexus 8 device later this year?

    Previous reports claim that Google will soon trash the Nexus lineup in favor of the Google Play Edition family. But until that time comes, it looks like the Android creator is still planning to work wonders with a new Nexus 8 tablet.

    Similar to what Apple has done traditionally, Google has been very secretive on its future releases and does not comment on devices in-development. Rumor on the Nexus 8 began when Google Android showed a picture of a female model holding a device that is slightly bigger than the Nexus 7. After news and speculations were published online about the image, Google pulled out the picture.
