According to a representative from Asus, at the end of June Google will release a 7 inch tablet called Nexus. But gave no details of what the Google tablet will feature, Asus representative stated at the conclusion of Computex, it will be “surprising.”
An Asus representative confirmed that Google will launch, in late June, a 7-inch tablet Nexus. The price will be less than $250, so it will try to face off against the Kindle Fire more than the iPad.
This is not the first time that rumors where heard about the possibility that Google would launch its own tablet. It was in December when Eric Schmindt, CEO of Google, confirmed the company had intended to sell a “high quality” tablet in the coming months of 2012. Schmidt did not provide details of the specifications that would have the device, other than it could be a comparison to previous models like the Motorola Xoom, or the Amazon Kindle Fire.
It is recalled that last month Rightware provided details about the Nexus tablet. Among the specifications mentioned highlighted a quad-core processor, NVidia Tegra 3 or Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system.
Furthermore, if we look back, last January Asus announced the MeMo 370T ablet, an Android device that also incorporates a quad-core processor Nvidia Tegra 3 and, according to the firm, will cost less than $250. Rumors about the possibility that the 370T MeMo is precisely what the next Google tablet will use a base have continued to succeed.
Nvidia, meanwhile, has announced the development of quad-core processors designed for use in tablets an the priced is below $200, so then the rumors about the possibility that the Google tablet will use these processors also increase.
We will have to wait until the Google Developer Conference, taking place later this month. Experts say this could be the ideal setting for the presentation of the tablet to come into direct competition with the Amazon Kindle Fire but to its credit, will provide full access to Google Play, plus it would incorporate the latest version of Android.
