Google to give away Nexus tablets

Written by Fuad Abazovic



At I/O conference


Google is having its traditional developer’s conference called I/O starting June 27th this will be the date to see the new Nexus 7 tablet. We are not sure about the name but at least the Nexus part sounds about right.

The tablet that the rest of the world will have to buy for $199 will be given away to every developer that paid a saucy amount of money to attend this conference. We can also confirm from multiple sources that like to remain behind the curtain that the tablet is indeed Tegra 3 based and that this is the $199 tablet that Jen Hsun Huang, CEO of Nvidia has mentioned so many times before.

According to Jensen, $199 is the impulse sweet spot buy place and having Tegra 3 there sounds like a lucrative idea, especially if the idea gets backed up by Google itself. Naturally the tablet comes with the full Android experience without any limitations meaning it will put a lot of pressure on very limited and application locked Kindle Fire.

The 1280x720 seven inch tablet for $199 and vanilla ICS sound like a nice idea and good thing is that unlike Kindle Fire, Nexus 7 will also launch simultaneously in Europe and America.
