- Google Tablet
Google have promised to release a tablet of their own by the end of this year, but it seems the project is going as planned. According to the last piece of (unofficial) information, the debut of the device is going to be in the recent future. According to the rumors, the event was scheduled to be held this May, but it was then delayed, because there is still much work to be done – the current price of the components is about $250, which is way above the target price, at which Google want to sell it – between $150 and $200.
This means, that additional changes have to be made in both the design and the hardware of the tablet and it’s also why the release of the tablet is rumored to have been pushed back for July. Google’s first tablet is also rumored to feature a Tegra 3 processor and a 7″ display, and to be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Such a price, combined with these specifications would confirm the information, that this tablet is going to be more of a competitor of the Kindle Fire than to Apple’s iPad. B. A.
