    More info has begun streaming out about the Google Nexus tablet. Supposedly, TechnoBuffalo has some exclusive info regarding the phantom device. According to their sources, the first Google Nexus tablet will be announced at Google's I/O Conference next month, and several new details have emerged as well. Here's what their sources suggest:
    • The tablet will be officially unveiled at Google's I/O Conference, and attendees will each receive one.
    • Asus will indeed be the first Google Nexus Tablet designer, but there may be more in the works from several manufacturers.
    • The tablet will have a 7-inch display and a NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset.
    • Supposedly, this chipset will be based upon NVIDIA's newer, and less expensive, "Kai" architecture. Because of this it will likely retail for around $200.
    • It may come pre-loaded with Android 5.0/Jelly Bean.
    This news piece also hinted at the accuracy of earlier rumors about five different Nexus-style phones from five different manufacturers, and that they will be coming in November "to mark the 5th anniversary of Android."

    $200? Sounds like a steal to me.

    Glad there's finally any update on this now... I've been wondering what the H happened about that news/rumor that broke about this months ago. That $200 is what really made it seem like a rumor, with all that serious hardware it's packing. Psyched I didn't end up throwing down on a tablet yet, since I've waited this long, this baby is on my hitlist!!:icon_ lala:

    I'm doubting it will launch with Jellybean, unless Jellybean ends up being Android 4.2 and not 5.0

    Very few devices even have ICS yet, I have serious doubts that Jellybean exists in any form other than a very early alpha build. My guess is that Jellybean will launch in November, and the Nexus tablet will be upgradeable at that point - but will launch with ICS. At least the ones they give away at Google I/O will launch with ICS. This is just speculation, though, same as the info from the "sources".
