We have been hearing rumors for some time that Google are working on their own Android tablet, in a similar way that they have done with their ‘Nexus’ branded smartphones which have been produced by various manufacturers.
Now according to a recent report by The Verge, the Google Nexus Tablet has apparently been delayed until around July of this year, and the reason for the apparent delay is to reduce the price of the tablet.
The tablet is rumored to retail for $249, and Google wants to reduced the price to the $149 to $199 range to compete with Amazon’s Android tablet offering, the Amazon Kindle Fire.
According do the report, as we have heard previously Google are working with Asus to develop the Nexus tablet, and it will be interesting to see what both Google and Asus come up with.
The $199 price would be a good move, as Amazon has had success with its Kindle Fire Android tablet that many Android tablet manufacturers have yet to do, so obviously the $199 price is important.
