Rumor: Quad-core Asus Nexus Tablet coming for $199 There is a new rumor today that Google's expected "Nexus Tablet" will be built by Asus.
If accurate, the device will be a 7-inch model with the "Pure Google Experience" meaning it will run on a stock Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich, with no custom UI or any custom apps brought by a carrier or manufacturer.

More importantly, the device will be powered by a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and sell for just $199.

AandM says the "rumor comes from two different industry sources...that have provided reliable information in the past..and are trustworthy."

At that price point, the tablet will directly compete with the current market leaders, the Amazon Kindle Fire and B&N Nook Tablet.

Any other details? Sources speculate the tablet will be called the Google Play and be released at Google's I/O conference at the end of June.
