Google may offer its own tablet in the coming weeks at theÂ Google I/O conference. Rumors have that the tablet is being built by Asus with a nvidia Tegra 3 on board. That’s good and all but the question that everyone wants to know how will it compete with Apple’s iPad.
Google is set to unveil its long-rumoredÂ tabletÂ at its I/O conference next month, according to a new report.
Citing a “trusted source,” technology site TechnoBuffalo said the search giant willÂ show off the device at its conference, which kicks off June 27, and give a unit to every developer in attendance.
As for the unit itself, TechnoBuffalo’s source said it’ll come with Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 chip, and has been developed, as reported previously, with help from Asus. TechnoBuffalo couldn’t confirm which operating system will be running on the device, but it did say that it could beAndroidÂ 5.0 Jelly Bean
Rumors have been swirling for months that Google is planning to launch a tablet. However, reports have been mixed over when it will launch and what sort of features it’ll offer. Earlier this week, DigiTimes reported, citing sources, thatÂ the 7-inch tablet will launch in July. Earlier this year, NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim told CNET that thetablet’s production was slated for April.
For its part, Google has stayed tight-lipped. CNET has contacted the company for comment on the latest report, and will update this story when we have more information.
