Second generation of Nexus 7 coming in July?
The Nexus 7, having been around for more than year now, is still what we consider among the more affordable and robust tablet experiences. Of course it is a brilliant tablet but the market is really competitive so it’s time for an update.
We heard back in January that a new version is in the pipeline, and even learned a bit more last month as well. Now it seems the next-gen Nexus 7 is around the corner as DigiTimes, sometimes a reliable news source, is reporting that new Nexus 7 will land in market sometime in July. With 16GB of storage, the tablet could be priced at US$229.
As first-tier brand vendors have been trying to expand their sales through price cuts, Google is not looking to follow suit, but will instead focus on defending the US$199-249 segment of the 7-inch tablet market and target competitors such as Amazon and Apple, the sources said.
The second generation Nexus 7 will be launched as a mid-range Android tablet, hence the price of $200-250. If the next Nexus 7 comes out with better specifications and the mentioned price tag, would you consider buying it? Tell us about it in the comment box below.
