Google and ASUS are rumoured to release a “Nexus” tablet that runs Jelly Bean priced under $200. Benchmarks of said tablet, named the “Google Asus Nexus 7,″ showed up online and also listed the specs as having a Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, OS 4.1, and a screen resolution of 768×1280. This tablet will most likely be unveiled at the upcoming Google I/O.
However, at the Computex Taipei trade show Acer announced the Iconia Tab A110, this is a tablet that runs Ice Cream Sandwich, has a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, front-facing camera, HDMI and a microSD card slot. The overall design is basic, nothing spectacular or groundbreaking but the price could very well sway people to purchase. Apparently the A110 will launch for under $200 in Q3.
So coming up in a couple weeks is Google I/O and we’ll see what Google and ASUS have dreamed up. Looks like the tablets with respectable specs will be greeted by lower prices, which in the end will drive adoption.
