Google has been much successful in the smartphone market with its nexus line and its open source software Android. There has been a lot wait for the latest tablet from Google, which it announced some time back. It seems that folks would have to wait a little longer as the company has decided that it won’t be launching any tablet till July.
The main reason for this delay is that the company plans to make some design changes in a hope that it would lower the price of its tablet from the current speculated $249. This is a joint venture between Google and Taiwan’s Asustek Computer. There are other tablets currently in the market under that price tag, which is why Google has been forced to rethink its strategy. In order to take on the competition, Google has planned to provide a tablet of similar specs and price range.
Its biggest competitor, Apple is also planning a similar move by launching a 7-inch tablet in that price range. The current product which is designed keeping in mind Android 4.0 OS can cause further delay, according to the company. The already heated up tablet market is sure shot to get extra crispier with Google jumping on the bandwagon.
