    [Rumor] Quad-core Google Nexus Tablet for $199 to be made by Asus?





    The latest rumors on the internet suggests Google plans to release a 7-inch $199 Nexus tablet. This rumor comes from two different industry sources who AndroidAndMe talked to at Mobile World Congress. As they have provided reliable information in the past, AndroidAndMe believes the sources are trustworthy. However, the sources rightfully want to remain anonymous.

    According to the source, the tablet will be manufactured by ASUS and feature a 7-inch display along with the latest Google Android operating system (Ice Cream Sandwich). Inside, the rumored device features NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor.

    Selling a full-featured Android tablet with all of Google’s mobile services and a quad-core Tegra 3 processor for only $199 would definitely bring some sales for Google and ASUS. It wouldn’t surprise us if there a 10 inch model was released and priced at $299 at the minimum. Sounds good don't it? Would you get one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    You know....With how thin phones are becoming and edge-to-edge displays with no bezel it may not be long before we see a tri-fold phone that transforms into a tablet. Think of it folded in thirds, operating like a normal, albeit much thicker, smartphone. Then you unfold it, activating the other two screens, to get a tablet with 3X the screen area, or an 8"+ screen size.

    I should patent this before Apple does!

    I'd definitely get the tablet. I'm going crazy debating whether to pull the trigger and get a Transformer Prime, but from the sound of this article, why not wait and get a stocked up one for a good price?? Only thing I'd have to debate then is whether to get the 7" or the 10" one, if they release it for $100 more like speculated. That is weird that GOOG would team up with ASUS even tho they've got MOTO's mobile patent portfolio. I guess they figure MOTO isn't doing that well in the tablet market so might as well capitalize on it. When's a MOTO and GOOG-only inspired phone gonna hit the shelves, since they are one in the same technically as far as mobile devices??

    Oh yeah this makes total sense... /begin sarcasm First it completely jibes with the previous news that Google wanted to handle the hardware themselves...or, oh wait...supposedly Asus is making it. OK, forget that. And well second, of course after announcing their own quad/quint core sub-10" tablet, it makes complete sense that Asus would completely undercut their own marketing plan by making a competing model for Google. /end sarcasm

    I dunno...I think I'm taking this one with a huge grain of salt.
