Report: Next Nexus 7 to cost under $150 According to an Asian-based report, Google will release a $99 Nexus 7 tablet eventually, undercutting even their own cheap price tags.
The popular tablet has a base model that costs $199, well below the hot-selling iPad Mini at $329 and on par with offerings from Amazon.

However, Google is aiming to price below $150, with a $99 tablet being the ultimate goal.

The cheaper Nexus 7 will be ready for launch in the Q2 2013, using component maker O-Film's touch-screen glass-glass film technology for a thinner and cheaper tablet.

Cnet speculates the first device will cost $129-149.

$99 for the Nexus 7 is too good to be true...

That is awesome but it really needs a micro sd card slot!
