    [Rumor] Google and Asus May Be Preparing to Launch a $99 Nexus Tablet Later This Year


    This intriguing bit of news comes from DigiTimes, so we have to plop it firmly in the rumor category, but if it turns out to be true, it will likely blow the tablet market wide open! Supposedly, DigiTimes has word that Google and Asus are teaming up again to launch a $99 dollar Nexus later this year. The same "industry source" of this intel also shared that they are also planning to release a thinner version of the current Nexus 7. The report claims that both tablets will use display panels from HannStar Display.

    Of course, considering that the current Nexus 7 costs Google about $157 to make, it seems implausible that they could develop a tablet that low without some major sacrifices. Still, if they can do it, the tablet landscape will change dramatically, and Apple would have a hard time competing with a tablet of that price even if they do release an iPad-mini.

    It's important to note that Asus has already come forward denying this report, so we should probably remain highly skeptical.

    I would guess that ASUS would want to rule this as a rumor to avoid hurting sales of the Nexus 7 if this came to actually be true. Why buy the 7 now when I newer one will could come out soon and possibly with the next OS build at half the price.

    They are just going do everything for $$$. Low price = More Sales and More Sales = More Cash.
