Dual-core Nexus tablet reportedly $149, ready to go
New details have emerged for the ‘is-it-real-or-not’ Nexus tablet which add weight to the argument that it’s actually happening. According to a “senior employee at a supply chain company” the tablet is already finished up and ready to roll. Given that rumors have tapped the tablet with a May/June launch date it makes sense that the product would be going into production, maybe finished.
It is also being reported that Google and Asus have scrapped the Tegra 3 quad-core chipset in favor of a lower-cost dual-core chipset. Why? Google wants to come in under that $200 price point that people are expecting for 7-inch tablets now that the Kindle Fire changed things up. Taking advantage of volume pricing, a dual-core processor will bring the cost down quite a bit. The new rumor is that the presumed Nexus device will run $149.99 and that it is a re-branded version of the ASUS MeMo 370T.
Assuming all this to be true, what say you about a 7-inch Nexus tablet with a $150 price tag? Will you jump all over it or do you still not see a need for a tablet?
