Most of the major manufacturers of tablets of this class are working hard to update the range of models, so Google has to act in a stiff competition. However, so far no one has been able to release a similar device in this price category. The Nexus model is advantageously distinguished by a more powerful processor and high screen resolution.
The Google Nexus device in basic design will have a 7-inch screen, a four-core processor, a front-positioned 1.2-megapixel camera and 8GB memory. The tablet is supposed to be supplied with Android 4.0 operating system. The estimated cost of the tablet will be $200, and a model with 16GB memory will cost $250. You can buy a new product in the United States at the end of July 2012 in the online store Google Play. Somewhat later, the base model with 16GB of memory will appear on the UK retail network. In Russia such a tablet can cost about 10 thousand R. – experts consider.
Google’s plans included introducing a new tablet in May 2012, but developers during the course of work had claims to the high price and final design of the device. In addition, additional hardware and software optimization was needed. Therefore, the tablet’s release was postponed to July 2012. The first batch of tablets from Google will be about 600 thousand devices, but in 2012 the company plans to implement at least 2 million Nexus tablets.
