We've been doing a whole lot of speculation regarding a Google/ASUS branded tablet, which will be aimed at the budget consumer, and bring a stock Android experience to the masses. Now, an ASUS representative at Computex has let slip the first semi-official word that this device does indeed exist, and that we'll be seeing it unveiled very soon. We've indulged, thus far, in no end of rumor-mongering about this tablet, as well as the possibility of a few others. While everyone has been calling it the Nexus tablet, no one is really sure if Google will be going that route at all. It just seems like a safe bet.
This morning, while on-site at Computex, Android Authority claims to have engaged an ASUS product representative. That representative is said to have confirmed that Google and ASUS have partnered on a tablet device, and that this device will be unveiled to the public "at the end of June." If true, then that's a pretty solid affirmative that we'll be seeing it pop up at Google I/O. Maybe even as the giveaway to attendees? The representative declined to give further details, only calling it "awesome."
Certainly it's not much to go on, but it does seemingly confirm what we've all been thinking. There was, however, no word on the other Nexus devices that may be coming to the line-up this fall. That's to be expected, though, if additional devices are coming from other manufacturers. We'll be looking forward to seeing how the rumors stack up to reality when I/O goes live in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned to your Rootz channel for all the details.
