Google Nexus Tablet reportedly confirmed by Asus rep. Asus Padfone and Transformer Infinity headed to AT&T with LTE on board?
It looks like an Asus representative has confirmed the upcoming launch of Google’s first Nexus tablet, which should feature a 7 inch display, and be positioned as one of the most affordable Android tablets on the market.
According to Android Authority, the Asus rep, who wanted to remain anonymous, said at Computex that the tablet “will come by the end of June.” Most probably, this means it will be announced at Google I/O 2012 in San Francisco (Jun 27 – June 29).
Although it will feature a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, the Asus-made Google Nexus tablet is likely going to cost around $200. Acer – one of Asus’ main rivals – has already announced a quad-core tablet that’s priced similarly: the Iconia Tab A110.
As previously reported, the first Nexus tablet could run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean when it finally hits the shelves.
In other Asus news, it’s said that the high-end Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 (pictured above) is going to be released by AT&T in the US later this month, with LTE on-board. Furthermore, Asus reportedly wants to sell the Padfone through US carriers, too, but for the moment only AT&T seems interested to do that (although it hasn’t taken any decision yet). We’ll bring more on this as we get it.
