More info revealed on upcoming Google tablet More rumors and info are abound in regards to Google's still unconfirmed new Nexus tablet.
According to CNBC, the tablet has been passed around the Google headquarters for some time and will come out over the summer.

The device is said to be aimed at killing the Amazon Kindle Fire, which runs a custom version of Android and has a fully different ecosystem than Google's. Amazon has its own browser, its own app store, its own cloud storage, its own music store, its own ebook store and its own streaming movie store.

If accurate, the source says the tablet will cost between $200 to $250 and include a much-higher resolution screen and a front-side camera for video chat.

Rumor has it the device will be unveiled at the Google I/O conference on June 25th for July mass release.
