Google I/O is a little over a month away, and the speculation surrounding the “Nexus 5,” the rumored five devices Google is set to reveal this year, is picking up steam. Talks of a low-cost but high spec'ed Google Nexus Tablet have been making the rounds for a while now, and we have some new information that sheds some light on what we can expect from this device.
A “trusted source” leaked to technobuffalo that ASUS will be manufacturing Google's first Nexus tablet, with the 7″ slate being powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The source further added that the device will not only be announced at Google I/O, but Google will also be handing out the device to the developers who attend the conference. This new report comes to confirm what we've already been suspecting about the Nexus tablet for a while.
Let's look at some other recent information leaks and facts, that suggest that this latest report is accurate:
We are certainly getting a better idea of what to expect from the Nexus tablet, and I am very excited to see what Google has to offer! Come end-June, it looks like I'll know exactly what my next tablet is going to be.
What are your thoughts? Can we take for granted that the Nexus tablet will definitely be produced by ASUS? With Project Kai unveiled, is it that much of a surprise to expect a quad-core processor, even in the $200-$250 price range? What do you think are the chances of Android 5.0 being featured on this device?
