Yet another report is claiming an imminent 7-inch Google tablet. And add Asus to the mix as that company will make and co-brand the device.
Google and Asus will unveil a 7-inch co-branded tablet PC as early as May, said DigiTimes in a report dated March 9.
NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim told CNET last month that the tablet will have a 1280x800 resolution 7-inch display and production is slated for April. The initial production run is between 1.5 million to 2 million units, Shim said.
And another report earlier this month said at least one model will retail for $199, run stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and use a quad-core Tegra 3 processor from Nvidia.
The last part is interesting because at CES Asus, which is slated to sell for only $250. That also uses the Tegra 3 processor.
On paper, this would be a step up from the $199 Amazon Kindle Fire, which, by comparison, has a 1024x600 display, runs Android 2.3, and uses a Texas Instruments dual-core OMAP 4430 chip .
