7-Inch ASUS Google Nexus Tablet Could Launch In May 2012

There are mad rumours around the net that Asus has been in talks with Google themselves to lay down an Asus 7 inch tablet. Rumours are that the tablet may come out in May for as low as $200-$250.

This makes this potential tablet a Kindle killer or a hot competitor with the offerings from Barnes & Noble, Amazon and Blackberry (who’s 7 inch Blackberry Playbook has come down to $199).

Quality tablets for cheap are hard to come buy, as the old¬†adage¬†goes, you get what you pay for. The HP Touchpad sold for as low as $100 during it’s fire sale last year, and the Blackberry playbook which ha sjust released it’s OS 2.0 has gone as low as $100 for RIM employees.

Nexus devices seem to hit the market with a lot of success and support. The guys over at XDA have already developed some solid roms for phones such as the Nexus S.

There is no doubt that a tablet from Asus will probably run the newest Android OS right now which is Ice Cream Sandwich. From the looks of the Memo, it may not have a foward facing camera, but will spot a quad core Tegra 3 processor (simiular to the current Transformer Prime) but at a smaller screen size and at a much more affordable price.

This is the magic price range that I think a lot of consumers will more likely go for if they aren’t going to splash out $500 for a new iPad.

Only time will tell if we get a sub $250 Asus Nexus tablet this May. If so, I will definitely be picking one up!
