Google Nexus tablet release to be officially unveiled in June?

Looking to compete with the market dominating iPad and the Kindle Fire, Google's own branded tablet is to be unveiled next month, reports claim

 

Google’s eagerly awaited own-branded Nexus tablet is to be officially unveiled next month ahead of release later this year, new reports have suggested.

Long the thing of rumour and speculation, Google’s first own-branded tablet is said to be readying for a June outing with latest reports suggesting Asus has partnered with the search giant to follow-on from the Android launching collection of Nexus smartphones with the company’s first 7-inch device.

Citing supply chain sources, Digitimes has claimed Google’s entry-level Amazon Kindle Fire rivalling tablet will be showcased for the first time in the coming weeks before 600,000 units make their way to global retailers in time of a July in-store release.

Google Nexus Tablet Rumours

Whilst little is currently known about the rumoured 7-inch Nexus tablet, and with Google remaining tight-lipped on the matter, the latest reports have suggested the Android developer is planning on shifting between 2 and 2.5 million tablets before the years out with production already well underway.

Tipped as heading to launch with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS in tow as opposed to the upcoming 5.0 Jelly Bean software, the reportedly Wi-Fi only tablet has been rumoured as heading for release with a $249 (£156) price tag with Google said to be targeting a lower $199 (£125) price in order to better compete with the Amazon tablet offering.
