    Over the past few months we have heard various rumors of a mythical Google Nexus tablet device, and Google's plan to bring that to fruition sometime this year. Other rumors have even pegged the first Google Nexus tablet device to be built by Asus. This newest rumor, from DigiTimes, not only seems to confirm both of these rumors, but even suggests that the tablet could be ready as early as next month, and will ship out in July. Here's a quote from the DigiTimes article sharing the details,

    Further speculation from sources in the industry suggest that the "Nexus Prime" name we heard bandied about for the Galaxy Nexus last year was actually the name for this first Google Nexus tablet. That does seem to fit, considering it was Asus that came out with the Transformer Prime. Of course, these are just additional rumors at this point, but perhaps we will know something concrete in just a few weeks.

    Who else is excited by the prospect of an Asus/Google Nexus Prime tablet?

    To me 7" is too small to dish out big money on a tablet. I think the note 10.1 will be the one to get.

    Well, what if it's not big money? I would entertain a 7" tablet at the right price.

    I travel alot and have a 7in Galaxy Tab. IMHO, I find the 7in form factor to be more travler-friendly than the 10in. For me it depends on the specs. Dual-core and a slightly upgraded screen won't be enough to make me switch and that's what I'm expecting. I hope I'm surprised.
