Report: Google’s Nexus Tablet has already started shipping, should cost $199, doesn’t feature 3G or LTE

With Google I/O getting really close now, almost everyone expects the long-rumored Asus-made Nexus Tablet to be finally announced. And, once again, Taiwanese website DigiTimes claims to have some inside info on the matter.

Reportedly, the Google tablet has already started shipping, and should become available for purchase in July for $199. As mentioned before, the tablet features a 7 inch display, and could run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It’s said that Google opted not to include 3G or LTE connectivity among its features, leaving only Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to manage wireless data transfers. Also, it looks like the device doesn’t have a camera on the back, but only one on the front side. Obviously, these measures were taken to keep costs low.

Google I/O 2012 will commence in San Francisco, on June 27. So we hale less than two weeks until we’re going to find out if the Nexus Tablet is what it’s rumored to be.
