New details stemming from DigiTimes indicate that the much-ballyhooed Google Nexus tablet will ship in June with an initial volume of 600,000 units per month.  Expected to be co-designed and developed by ASUS, the tablet may take the stage at Google IO on June 27th.

Reports suggest that Google is anticipating somewhere between 2 million and 2.5 million of the Wi-Fi units in 2012.  Rumors had originally tapped the tablet with a May launch however Google pushed things back a bit because the design didn’t meet expectations and/or the price would be too high.  It’s anticipated that the presumed Nexus tablet would have a quad-core  Tegra 3 processor and that it could cost as low as $199 when it retails.
