7-inch Google Tablet at 199 dollars for 2012 ?
Huge rumor from Digitimes : Google is currently working on a 7-inch tablet under Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The device would be priced at 199 dollars and could be launched as soon as in April. This will compete directly with the new Amazon Kindle Fire, a product that starts selling like crazy.
“As Google reportedly may launch an own-brand tablet PC to compete against Apple’s iPad, sources from Google’s upstream supply chain believe that Google, instead of Apple, may actually be targeting Amazon’s 7-inch Kindle Fire as its major competitor. “
At 199 dollars the device, this google-tablet could be perfect as a second tablet at home (if you have already an iPad or the Samsung Galaxy Tab) or for your wife/children. If you just check your emails and read news on the Internet, then a $199 tablet is just perfect if you plan to buy only one device.[via | image: mobilesyrup]
