A new rumour is circulating about a tablet, but this time not by Apple or Samsung, but by Google. The search engine has been trying everything it could to compete in different arenas, whether it be social networking through Google+ or mobile operating system through Android. Now it is coming out with Google Nexus tablet that is rumoured to cost as low as $149.
Just as Apple is expecting much fanfare with its next iPad, Google has started churning on its own rumour mill about the Google Nexus tablet to create and increase the anticipation in potential customers. The new 7-inch tablet could launch in just two months from now in May.
In order to compete better with Amazon’s Kindle Fire device at the sales, which is priced at $199, Google has decided to make the cost of this new tablet as low as $149 according to a senior employee at a supply chain company located in the United States.
Google has not received much success with social networking, but its Android Market is going strong. It might do well at tablets too. Google has also reportedly dropped the price of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and made it between $149 and $199.
Apple however is still a lot safe in this area according to the experts, but Amazon might have to double check about its price tags. Since now the rumour has been started, it better be impressive or else potential customers would now be more disappointed than they otherwise would have been if it does not turn out to be $149 or around that.
