The current generation of Sony’s tablet runs Tegra 2 processor. So a natural transition for the company in its next tablet would be to move on to Tegra 3 processor, unless the company contemplates a huge shift. That much is logical deduction. But we now also have a somewhat fickle reason to believe that Sony is actually working on just such a tablet, one with Tegra 3 processor and Android 4.0.
This has been revealed by an entry on the Android benchmarking app NenaMark’s leaderboard. The test has been run by a user ‘Sony S1.’ What is significant is that S1 is also the original name of Sony’s Tablet S.
The benchmark entry indicates that Sony is working on a tablet which tools a Tegra 3 processor and runs Android 4.0.3. Another significant piece of information revealed by the entry is that Sony’s Tegra 3 tablet has a 1280 x 800 display, which is kind of same as the display of Sony Tablet S which comes with a 1280 x 752 display resolution.
Whereas this is definitely a very unreliable source to gauge Sony’s plans, it does seem that the ‘Sony S1’ user rather unintentionally posted the results which, incidentally, caught the eyes of the tech reporters. We can be sure of how correct it is once Sony officially reveals plans about its upcoming tablet.
