Not too long ago a rumor started spreading all over the Internet. And that rumor said that Asus wanted to make a Google Nexus tablet priced at $99. But the thing is, you shouldn’t really trust words thrown over the World Wide Web by someone who doesn’t actually work at the company.
Asus is nowhere near creating a new tablet. But this rumor surrounding the manufacturer meant plenty of hype for the team there. Unfortunately, the Google Nexus is, for now, only a distant dream for the company’s fans. But let’s go back in the past and see how all of this first started.
A short while back, someone announced that Asus had big plans. According to the rumor started by that someone, the manufacturer would create an entry-level tablet that would cost only $99. But that wouldn’t be all. Asus would also supposedly launch another model, a more expensive one. The rumor said that these two gadgets would arrive in stores somewhere at the end of 2012.
what can be observed by looking at Google and their strategies, the company would wish to come with something new. Because of rivals such as Barnes & Noble, Apple, Amazon and others. The best idea would be to create a tablet that would be better than the Nexus 7.
Amazon and Apple have been having plenty of success with their iPad Mini and Kindle Fire HD, respectively. Not to say that Apple is bound to launch a new model in the near future, too. If Google wants to stay in top, they will need to come with a tablet that has a 9″ touchscreen. Then there’s Barnes & Noble. They recently said that they will come with a model that has a display of 9″. And a model with a 7″ touchscreen.
When asked about the rumor, Asus did not confirm it’s true. But that’s something which every manufacturer says when asked about a rumor. Maybe they will launch a new model, maybe not. But if they really were to come with something new, it would be a gadget with a 7″ display that does not cost an arm and a leg. Or a tablet with a 9″ touchscreen, to better compete with rivaling companies. And, to make things even better, they could offer a device that looks so much better than the Nexus 7. Either way, a partnership between Asus and Google is bound to create something great.
