Asus-made Google Nexus tablet shipments to reach 2 million units by the end of 2012
Not long ago, we told you that the first Google Nexus tablet has been delayed from May to July, because it needed some design changes to cut costs. Now DigiTimes is saying the same thing, but also adds some new details.
The Taiwanese website reports that, although it will be officially launched in July, the Galaxy Nexus tablet should start shipping in June, with initial shipments expected to reach 600,000 units. Total shipments could reach 2 to 2.5 million units before the end of this year.
As mentioned several times until now, the first Google Nexus tablet is manufactured by Asus, and could look similar to the Asus MeMo 370T seen below:
The Nexus tablet should feature a 7 inch display, and might cost less than $200. Most likely, the device will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch. We’ve previously heard that Google may want to sell it directly, though its own online stores, but it remains to bee seen if that’s true.
