Soon after Microsoft Surface, Google on 27th June is going to unveil its own version of iPad killer manufactured by Asus will cost on $199 and will run Android ICS firmware. Google’s chairman Eric Schmidt revealed in an interview last year that Google was developing its own tablet, which was later backed by an Asian business magazine claiming that the search engine giant has partnered with Asus to manufacture the Google tablet under the Nexus brand.
The best feature that will make Google tablet much more appealing to the masses is the price of Nexus tablet which at $199 will offer 7-inch display, and have the goodies of Android IceCream Sandwich OS. The magazine has even posted a blurry cam image of the Google tablet as you will notice in the image above.
According to the leaked Google Nexus Tablet specs:
- The device will offer only Wifi connectivity to make it affordable in terms of price, and will also ditch the rear webcam, but you will get a front-facing camera for video conferencing.
- The tablet will also have super-fast Chrome browser.
Google tablet is most likely powered by quad-core Tegra 3 chip from Nvidia together with Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
The best part of the story is that the Google Nexus tablet has already been made ready for customers to buy starting July, and total deliveries are said to achieve the target of at least 3 million tablets in the second half of 2012.
Google by releasing the tablet early will surely get an edge over the Microsoft Surface, which is not going to hit the stores at least a couple of months.
