Google Nexus Tablet Release Date To Be July ?

According to the latest rumors, it appears that Google will ship its Nexus tablet in June having an initial volume of 600,000 units per month. According to a Digitimes report, the tablet (which is developed in collaboration with ASUS) is ready to be launched in July. DigiTimes notes that Google initially wanted to release the Nexus tablet in May, but the developers did not come with a satisfactory design and the cost was a little bit high than expected.

Google had to make some modifications and that’s why the launch of the tablet was delayed till July. Google’s hopes for its new device are very high and people expect that the shipments will reach 2.5 million units by the end of the year. Rumor has it that Google’s will be packed with NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 CPU and could have a very small price, of $199. Most rumors say that the device will be unveiled on June 27th when Google’s annual I/O conference will take place.

It looks like everyone is following Amazon’s steps and want to produce cheaper tablets as Google Nexus is meant to be a direct rival for Kindle Fire in both size and price. Also, it is rumored that Apple will release a tablet around 7.85 inches called iPad Mini. Plus, there is also the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab, so the affordable 7-inch market will be very crowded. There will come a time when almost everybody will own one of these devices, even more than one.

Probably, the Google Nexus Tab will feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. However, it seems that the operating system will be upgraded this year (probably in November), so Google can sell its tablet with Android 5.0

I will be an intense competition between several major players on the tablet market as ASUS, and Acer and getting ready to release new 7-inch tablets too. The second half of 2012 is going to be very interesting.
