Google coming with a tablet ?

There has been rumors of Google coming with a tablet to challenge the lower end market of Kindle Fire and Nook for some time , if rumors are to be believed we will see one in the coming week in the event hosted by Google at San Francisco. Reported by Gizmodo Australia the Tablet is named as Google Nexus manufactured by Asus, with a  7 inch screen powered by a 1.3Ghz Quad core Tegra 3 processor and a GeForce 12 core graphics processor (may be only on the higher end model)and 1 Gb of RAM. CNET also reported the 7 inch screen is having  1280x 800 IPS display and the tablet will run on new Android version 4.1 Jelly Bean. Adding to the rumors , the tablet will not be having a back camera , but will come with a 1.2MP front camera. Battery life is rumored to be around 9 hours. Two versions of the tablet have been rumored a 8 Gb version priced at 199$ and 16 Gb version priced at 249$, but no word on the connectivity so far.

TechNumo is not going to speculate anything on this issue , but if this turns out to be true , then we are in for show down this fall .With Kindle coming out with Fire 2 with better specs at 199$,and drop in price for the older version (149$) Microsoft with Surface and many tablets on Windows 8 ,  Google Nexus adding  to this low end tablet market ,competition will be tough and  surely only the best will survive. The question regarding this tablet is with the price , if Google needs to stay afloat with other tablets , a 199$ price bracket is a must , anything above that for the base model will be suicidal for the Nexus tablet.
