Google Nexus 7 Tablet Release Date Is June, Says ASUS Insider

It won’t be long until Google will launch its first tablet, probably under the name of Google Nexus 7 (due to its 7-inch display).

The tablet will be produced by ASUS and it will pack a NVIDIA quad-core Tegra 3 processor. However, the most intriguing feature of Google’s new device is not the CPU nor the display, but its price which much lower than many other similar devices, rumors saying that it would be around $150-$250. The price tag is not a fable at all because a decent tablet can be manufactured with low costs. We saw that when we heard about NVIDIA’s Kai project and Acer’s Iconia Tab 110, both of them being ranged around the $200 price tag.

All the rumors say that the Google Nexus 7 will be launched at the Google I/O conference which will take place at the end of the current month, in San Francisco. Nevertheless, the details about the tablet are unknown until now though people speculate all kinds of specs.

The sure thing that Google is working on the device in collaboration with Asus. The information has been confirmed by an anonymous Asus rep who said that the Google Nexus 7 will be released at the end of June. Putting things head to head, it can only mean that the device will be unveiled at the Google I/O conference.

Until now, the tablet market has been governed by Apple’s iPad. The only device that managed have comparable sales was Amazon’s Kindle Fire. And not because it has greater specs, but because it is very cheap. People liked the idea if a decent tablet at a low price and the Kindle Fire had a lot of success.

Now, Google wants to strongly enter the market with a low-end tablet and try to diminish Apple’s sales which up to now seemed to be unbeatable. On the other hand, Apple too wants to release an affordable tablet, device which has been subject to a lot of rumors, which apparently will be named iPad Mini.
