Google chooses LG for Nexus tablet? Google may be looking to LG to create a Nexus tablet, says Crunchgear, following their Nexus One and Nexus S flagship 'superphones.'
Although unconfirmed, a Nexus tablet would be logical, given the popularity amongst developers for the Nexus One and Nexus S.

Nexus devices each offer fully 'vanilla' experiences, meaning no third-party software from manufacturers or carriers, like UI overlays.

If true, the LG Nexus would run on Android 3.0 (or possibly an update like 3.1) and be free of all software issues that 3.0 users have been experiencing with the Motorola Xoom.

By choosing LG, VB speculates that Google is "helping the company to deliver better Android products in the future."

Yeah, but here lies the question: How much is this going to be, and will the specs justify the cost? Tablets right now are just a little out of my reach $500-800 and need to come down a little. Any thoughts on this tablet. What price would be comfortable?

The Nexus S and One were nowhere near "cheap." I'd expect same from LG Nexus.
