Rumor has it that Google and Asus have jointly created a 7-inch entry-level tablet carrying a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. Known as Nexus tablet, the device is said to have Android 5.0 (Jellybean) OS pre-installed – but might have ICS initially.
Before we go on, let it be said that there are no confirmed details from Google or Asus so most of this is speculation. But we do know that the May launch was called-off due to minor adjustments. We also think that the Nexus Tablet is probably meant to duel with Amazon’s Kindle Fire. And we’re sure that Asus Nexus Tablet has to compete with Samsung and Acer when these companies present their own tablet creations in the second half of 2012.
Supply chains say the product will not be released until July, though it is set to be introduced at the Google I/O conference at the end of June. Every developer can expect a sample on the tablet’s launch, or at least, that’s what everyone expects.
Production is said to be good to go on 600,000 orders. Shipping will be open in June, with the (quite optimistic) projection of a total of 2-2.5 million units this year. No official pricing yet but most online folks believe that it’s cost would hover around $ 149.
