Google’s $99 Nexus tablet still expected this year
Contrary to what you might hear from hardware players, Google is still expected to deliver a $99 Nexus tablet before the year ends. According to a DigiTimes source, Google is working with Asus on a single-core Android tablet that should arrive before the holidays. Considering the fact that DigiTimes has been off the mark on a number of previous rumors, we should temper our enthusiasm. With that in mind, the story is that Qanta is assembling the tablet with parts from WonderMedia (ARM processor) and HannStar Display.
A $250 iPad Mini would definitely eat into the market currently occupied by the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire. Even with new stuff from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, Apple is just the company to steal away sales. A $99 tablet from Google, however, is just the game changer the industry needs.
