Is a cheaper Nexus 7 on the way? Industry suppliers being cited as sources in a recent DigiTimes report seem to think so. Apparently, Nexus 7 units that are currently in production make use of a new, lower-cost touchscreen technology that is expected to bring the price down all the way to $99 a piece.
Where are all the cool accessories for the Nexus 7? At least, the official docking station for the N7 is almost here, as it finally goes up for pre-order.
Yes, this isn’t the first time we’re seeing this particular rumor out and about: Asus is either building a cheaper Nexus 7 version for Google, or it’s creating its own budget-friendly device – even cheaper than the most affordable Nexus 7 out there. But we have fresh news for you, with just a few weeks to go until CES 2013 kicks off.
In the past, Asus has been pretty good about providing updates for the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, but if you can’t wait to get Android 4.2, there is a solution.
Youtube user Mike Stringfellow has uploaded a rather overly dramatic video of himself unboxing the official Asus dock for the Nexus 7. Although only released in Japan, we get our first look at what’s in the box and what to expect when the dock lands in the rest of the world.
We learned a while back that Asus was shipping out close to 1 million units of the Nexus 7 per month. With the recent introduction of newer variants, and buoyed by the holiday shopping season, DigiTimes reports that the monthly global sales of the tab are expected to break the million unit barrier in December.
Chances are, when you think of Asus and tablets, you think of their Transformer line, or maybe the Asus-manufactured Google Nexus 7, but its mostly forgotten MeMo line of tablets may be making a comeback.
When ASUS launched the new Padfone 2 back in October the device came loaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which disappointed many early buyers. But, as promised, ASUS has released to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Padfone 2 and it is rolling as an OTA download right now.
Asus has announced that the 32GB Nexus 7 with mobile data will land in Australia and New Zealand this December, where it will retail for a cool AUS$369.
This year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping sprees are behind us, but that doesn’t mean we’re done seeing some great deals on new Android devices.
