Google plans to finally unveil its Nexus Tablet it at this year’s Google I/O conference for developers on June 27, 2012.
According to sources, Nexus tablet will be made by Asus and will have a 7-inch form factor. There is talk that the Nexus tablet will come with Android 5.0 or Jelly Bean pre-loaded, since developers have had access to the Motorola XOOM.
Moreover, it has been confirmed that the Nexus tablet will be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 SoC. Nvidia recently talked about how “Project Kai” will change the way we think about cheap Android tablets. They talked about Kai being a platform, more than a piece of hardware and along with Tegra 3 and a mix of low-cost components; it’s very much possible to deliver a sub-$200 tablet, without having to compromise on performance. And what better way to launch this than with Google’s Nexus tablet.
There will also be some announcements about the next Nexus smartphone at Google I/O. Google is expected to go with multiple manufacturers for their reference phone and sources say that as many as five Nexus branded phones, possibly in different price segments will be launched in November. Samsung and Motorola are sure to be among the manufacturers.
