Google to Counter iPad Mini With $99 Nexus Tablet?
A new Digitimes report claims Google will launch a Nexus tablet for just $99 in the fourth quarter of 2012.
The US$99 Nexus tablet is equipped with an ARM-architecture single-core processor 8950 developed by China-based WonderMedia Technologies, and a HUVA TN panel made by Taiwan-based HannStar Display, the sources said. The tablet will be produced by Taiwan-based Quanta Computer.
However, Quanta declined to comment and Asustek Computer, a Taiwan-based vendor developing Nexus 7 through cooperation with Google, indicated that it has no plans to launch US$99 Nexus.
Google's current Nexus 7 tablet sells for $199.
