A few weeks ago, Google chairman Eric Schmidt let it slip that the company had plans to market “a tablet of the highest quality” within the next six months.That led to a lot of speculation, but Google refused to clarify Schmidt’s statements.
Now DigiTimes is reporting that the so-called Nexus tablet will be a 7-inch device running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. It’ll also be priced to compete with Amazon’s $199 Kindle Fire.
DigiTimes’ sources from Google’s supply chain say the tablet could be ready by this April.
The DigiTimes report feels a bit wishy-washy to us since Google’s Taiwan office denied knowing anything about a Google-branded tablet, so we’re treating it as a major rumour. Plus, DigiTimes has a very hot and cold record when it comes to reports like this.
