A new rumour today reveals that Google might launch a $200 Kindle Fire tablet competitor sometime between March or April this year, according to sources from “Google’s upstream supply chain”.
If it’s true, this would be surprising in terms of Google not trying to compete with the current number 1 leader in the tablet market, Apple’s iPad. In contrast to this, Google Taiwan released a statement in which the company says that has never hear about a plan of launching a Google Tablet in the near future.
Eric Schimdt, Google’s CEO, has recently acknowledged that the company plans to release a high quality tablet in the first half of 2012 but not further details have been revealed ever since. Many believe that Google might include a tablet in its portfolio the same way the Nexus smartphone has been release into the market.
The Google tablet is rumored to feature a 7-inch screen and powered by Android 4.0 with a price tag of $200 or under in order to compete with Amazon’s Kindle Fire.
