We have all heard about Google’s official Nexus Tablet that is said to be made by ASUS for quite some time now. For the past couple of weeks the confirmation of the infamous tablet has gotten closer and closer with press image drafts and benchmarks and today we take another step forward to the reality of the Nexus Tablet. Android Authority has reported that an ASUS representative, who wished to remain anonymous, confirmed the 7-inch Nexus Tablet at COMPUTEX. The representative also informed them that we should expect it to be unveiled by the end of June. We had already assumed this because the end of June is when Google IO will be held, and assumptions were that the Nexus Tablet would be unveiled during the event. While this news itself is nothing fairly new if you’ve been following the Nexus Tablet for the past couple of months, it is still good to get confirmation from an ASUS representative themselves and that the tablet will be unveiled in just less than a month. The Nexus Tablet is slated to be in the $199-$250 range equipped with NVIDIA’s Kal-El Tegra 3 processor. The price range and the fact that it’s straight from Google with the ‘Nexus’ name will be the two huge selling points for this slate.
In other news, ASUS also confirmed to AA that they are working to bring the ASUS Padfone to American carriers although the informant mentioned only AT&T has expressed any interest. Other U.S. carriers are probably too hesitant due to the tethering option that the Padfone has (loss of revenue). AT&T is also said to pick up the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) and should be available by the end of this month in both a WiFi only version and an LTE version.
This next month should be quite exciting in the Android world. By the end of June we should have the Nexus Tablet unveiled and possibly Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as well. Anyone else excited for what’s to come?
