Google Nexus Tablet’s Price Starts at $149
Google’s Nexus Tablet could have a price range of the $149 to $200 instead of the previously rumored $249 to $299. This makes it competitive with Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet or the Barnes and Noble Nook tablet.
This also brands it as a budget-friendly alternative to the pricey Apple iPad, which sells starting from $499. The rumor comes from a supply chain source which also confirms that Asus is manufacturing the tablet.
The Google Nexus tablet will likely have a 7-inch display and could be a redesigned version of the Asus MeMo 370T that it showed off during CES.
The device would, however, not carry the same specifications of the Asus MeMo 370T shown during CES. For instance, its speedy NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor will be replaced by a cheaper CPU. It is still unknown whether it will have the High Definition 7-inch display found on the Asus MeMo 370T with a pixel display resolution of 1280×800, or the 5 MP and 2 MP cameras.
Nonetheless, Google hasn’t released any definite details about this rumored tablet. Even the name, Nexus, may not be ultimately carried by the device. Nexus, however, is already a recognizeable name which would help Google sell the tablet should it continue using it.
The Google tablet will likely unveil at the CTIA event this May or at Google I/O in June.
