Nexus 7 to hit retail in July, at $199

Written by Fudzilla staff



Asus plans a cheap tablet of its own


Google’s first Nexus branded tablet is expected to appear at the Google I/O conference next week. The price is set at $199 and the device is manufactured by Quanta.

Digitimes is reporting that Google and Asus hope to ship at least three million units by year’s end. It is also worth noting that the Nexus tablet will be global, which can’t be said of earlier low-end tablets such as the Kindle Fire.

In order to cut costs, Google apparently dropped the rear-facing camera from the Nexus, but it features a front-facing unit for video conferencing. The tablet will only feature WiFi connectivity, so don’t expect LTE or 3G for that matter. The tablet will reportedly run a new version of Android, but at this point it is unclear whether we are looking at a revamped version of ICS or Jelly Bean. Interestingly, it will feature Google’s Chrome browser preinstalled.

However, Asus also plans to launch a cheap 7-incher of its own in August, priced between $159 and $179.
