You know how it goes. You’ve seen it happen before. An unreleased, unannounced device having a rumored launch date, and then having a rumored delay. At this point, it’s a pretty common practice. And now Google’s tablet is no stranger to the maneuver. According to a new report from The Verge, the ‘Nexus’ tablet that was originally set to see the light of day in May, has been delayed a couple of months, all in hopes of bringing the cost down.
As it stands right now, the majority of details regarding the tablet are unknown. However, this new report corroborates previous rumors suggesting the tablet will boast a NVIDIA quad-core processor under the hood, along with a 7-inch display. As far as the delay goes, the report points to a delay in making sure that the price is where they want it to be. Right now, $249 is too high, and they are trying to get it lower. Earlier rumors point out that Google is trying to get their Nexus tablet down to $200, and these new rumors would suggest the same thing. It will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, according to the rumors, which seems strange considering other reports are pointing to an earlier-than-expected unveiling of the next version of Android.
As it stands right now, we’ve got no official announcement from Google to go on, so we’ll just have to keep our ear to the ground and keep track of any new rumors. Stay tuned.
