According to reports, Google may be planning to launch a second tablet called the Nexus 10. The Nexus 7 may be getting a big brother.
Earlier this week we saw that Google has announced Nexus 7, a quad-core, 7-inch tablet with an attractive price tag of $199, which is targeted towards budget conscious consumers.
For now it seems that Google Nexus 7’s competing with Amazon’s Kindle device and not with iPad. If Google want to compete with iPad then they have to offer a new 10-inch slate which should come with impressive tech specs.
According to Digitimes sources, touch panels for the new Google Nexus 10 tablet will be supplied by AU Optronics (AUO) and Wintek. This would make Wintek the largest touch panel supplier for Google. Earlier in June, Wintek also supplied 500,000 units of OGS (one glass solution) touch panels for Google’s Nexus 7 tablet. For now, there’s no other detail known, other than the screen size.
Digitimes is not always a reliable source of information, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Google launches a 10-inch tablet.
Also it’s unclear if this rumored device will be manufactured by Samsung or Asus, the company that makes the Nexus 7.
We would definitely love to see this new 10-inch tablet from Google, as Nexus 7 already seems impressive and has got very good reviews by some top technology blogs.
