The latest Android tablet Nexus 7 powered by Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) gets many favorable reviews (see the analysis from e.g. Ars Technica, AnandTech, or The Verge). Google Chrome, the default web browser for Jelly Bean, works quite well on this 7″ tablet. How does it compare with other tablets? I’ve done a quick check and here is the result.
For more detailed results, check out the Dromaeo numbers (left to right: Playbook, Nexus 7, iPad 2). Playbook is running Playbook OS 2.0.1, Nexus 7 is obviously powered by Android 4.1.1, and iPad 2 has the latest iOS 5. Seems that the race is rather neck and neck.
All in all, by no means the above tests were extensive and complete. In addition, it would be nice to get some numbers with the new iPad and the upcoming iOS 6. In few months, perhaps including Windows Surface as well.
Feel free to stress-test your Nexus 7 tablet and share your findings!
