Second Gen Google Nexus 7 Selling Begins In July By Google : Reports

Google will begin selling the next-gen Nexus 7 tablet from July in the markets globally. The tablet, as previously rumored, will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. This information was reported by Reuters.

As there is no information what Google is aiming price for this device but Search giant is aiming to sell 8 million units of this tablet in the second half of the year.

The new Nexus 7 tablet will come with a thinner bezel, higher-resolution display (probably full HD) and Snapdragon processor, as previously said.

Google seems to be choosing Qualcomm Snapdragon processor over NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 because of ‘power’ related reasons.

Google, Qualcomm or NVIDIA did not comment on this report to the Reuters.

Google had originally jumped in the tablet arena with the release of original Nexus 7 tablet last June, when it partnered with Asus to manufacture the tablet, Asus is also making the second-generation tablet, showing the confidence that Google is showing this Taiwanese manufacturer.

One of the Reuters sources speculated that Nexus 7 might be priced beginning $199 like the first-generation model, but had no clear information about the pricing.

In related news, Asus India has announced the launch of Nexus 7 32GB as well as Nexus 7 3G variant in the country just yesterday ending a long wait. The tablet will be sold from Google Play, where Google is already selling the 16GB version Nexus 7 Wi-Fi tablet.
