Search giant Google will be going to release of its first tablet computer in July 2012 ,report suggests over the weekend. Earlier sources claimed that Google will release their first tablet in May 2012 in the price tag of $249 but Google wants to tweak the tablet and lower its price from the present $249.
Google Chairman Eric Schmidt said the company plans to market “a tablet of the highest quality,” perhaps in reference to the leading competitors products, such as Apple’s iPad.
The Google tablet to be made in partnership with Taiwan’s Asustek Computer has a 7-inch screen, an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and is Wi-Fi-only.
The Tablet runs on the latest Android version 4.0 that is Ice cream Sandwich(ICS). It added the co-branding strategy in Android tablets opens the door for a number of other companies to work with Google in the future, including Samsung Electronics and Acer.
The Google tablet directly targets the Amazon’s Kindle Fire market, another 7-inch tablet that retails for $199. Also reports cited that Google may be trying to preempt Apple Inc.’s plan to build a smaller tablet with a 7.85-inch screen that may be called the iPad mini.
