We’ve been hearing constant rumors surrounding Google’s alleged Nexus tablet since last December when executive Eric Schmidt told reporters that his company would be “doubling down on tablets.” Today, we finally have some good news regarding the inevitable future of the Nexus tablet.
According to NVIDIA’s recently announced Kai Program and past rumors, the 7-inch tablet will be powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor and will be exclusively manufactured by ASUS. More importanly though, is the tablet’s pricing which is said to hover around the affordable $200 mark.
The guys over at AndroidAuthority have managed to get a somewhat straight answer from an ASUS representative at Computex 2012. The rep, who wished to remain anonymous, confirmed our suspicions and told sources that the company is partnering with Google for an upcoming tablet that is set for a release at the end of June. This lines up perfectly with Google I/O which runs from June 27th to the 29th. Other than the confirmation of the tablet’s existence, the representative couldn’t add much more information other than “it will be awesome”.
