Google earlier announced to release its tablet PC sometime in May, but now the company confirms that their first tablet PC won’t reach market before July this year (according to sources). The reason why Google delayed the planned release of its first tablet PC, it may because they want to make some changes in it looking towards the competition of current tablet market. For your kind information, Google will be partnered with Taiwan’s brand Asustek Computer to make its first tablet PC. As per the current specifications set for this tablet; it will have a 7-inch display, powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, runs Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and is Wi-Fi-only. As you all know Google makes its Android Nexus smartphones partnered with various companies and this game begins for tablets. This may opens the door for many other companies (including Samsung Electronics, Acer and others) to work with an Internet giant like Google in the future.
The current Asustek co-branded Google’s first tablet is priced at $249 which is expensive than previous reports, that was between $149 to $199. The obvious competitor of Google, Amazon has also released a 7-inch tablet, the Kindle Fire for $199. So it might be the main reason why Google making delay in its release. According to source, the Mountain View team is planning to bring some changes to its design and hopefully they would cut its price somehow from $249. There is also another smaller tablet is ready to release from Apple, the iPad mini with 7.85-inch screen.
Some sources are also suggested that Google wants to postpone its first Asustek co-branded tablet release until after June, as a result their first tablet may be run on the next version of Android (Jelly Bean). But it’s unlikely, sources said. Because the current tablet is designed to run on Android v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) platform and the introduction of new software may cause a much longer delay. So what you think, will Google go for its next Android version “Jelly Bean”?
