Google’s Nexus Tablet Pushed to July Launch to Cut Price
Monday, April 9th, 2012
We aren’t going to see Google’s Nexus Tablet now until July in an attempt to cut the tablets cost. The information was gathered over at The Verge who originally had announced that the Nexus was to be released in May. Google says that the launch is being delayed in a last minute attempt to tweak the highly anticipated Google branded Nexus tablet.
By working on tweaking the Android tablet Google hopes that they can reduce the cost of the tablet even lower than the originally announced $249. The tablet itself is being produced by Asus to be branded by Google and compete directly with the Amazon Kindle Fire. Since the Kindle Fire has a $199 price tag Google wants to get a little closer to that.
The Google Nexus tablet is to be a 7 inch Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. There are also talks that the tablet will be easily updated to Android 5.0 Jellybean as soon as the OS is available.
