Rumour: Google still expected to launch entry-level Nexus tablet

Google NexusRumours persist that Google will release an entry-level Nexus tablet priced below its currently cheapest model, the 16GB Google Nexus 7, which currently sells for CA$209/US$199. Digitimes still expects the company to unveil this cheaper tablet and predicts it will “have the strongest influence on its competitors.”

Earlier rumours suggested that this tablet could sell for as low as US$99. It could be powered by a 800 MHz single-core WonderMedia Technologies PRIZM 8950 processor (and Mali-400 GPU). It may also be manufactured by Quanta Computer rather than Nexus 7 partner ASUS.

Digitimes also predicts that Google will continue to find success with its Nexus tablet line in 2013 with shipments to reach 19 million units and account for 50% of non-Apple tablet shipments.
