Sometimes you just have to appreciate the rumor-mill. Even if they don't always turn out to be true, some rumors make it easy to get more excited about future products. Here is a case in point. Supposedly, a representative from Asus at Computex told Android Authority that the Nexus tablet we have heard so many rumors about will be coming "by the end of June." Just as a recap here are the previous rumors about the device: It will come with the Tegra 3 chip. It will have a price range between $150-$250 (probably $200). It will achieve this pricing by using the Kai platform. It will be announced at the Google I/O Conference in San Francisco at the end of June.
It looks like this supposed confirmation actually at least one of these above rumors. We will have to wait and see if it turns out to be true because "the proof is in the pudding", but luckily we won't have to wait long. On a separate note, this same Asus representative was able to confirm a couple of other separate Asus-related tidbits. Here's a quote with some details,
As always, we will keep an eye on things to keep you informed!ASUS is in talks with US carriers to bring the Padfone stateside. The bad news is carriers hate it (somehow expected, those tethering fees are basically free money) and, so far, only AT&T is willing to give it a try. Things are going slow on this front, said the ASUS rep.
Moving on, the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) is coming by the end of June in both a WiFi only and an LTE version, which will be picked up by AT&T. We suspected for a while that the Pad Infinity would come on AT&T, based on an appearance that the slate made on FCC. Now we know for sure. We’ve been told that Asus encountered production issues with upstream suppliers, but they are now solved and all the pieces are falling into place for the TF700 launch. The pad will go for $499 but we are not sure if that’s the price of the WiFi-only version or of the LTE version.
