Seven-inch device could unveiled in May at $149
Just weeks ago it was reported that Taiwan's Asus would follow Samsung, HTC and Motorola and become the latest maker of an official Google device.
That was a rumour, but now Androidandme has quoted a supply chain source that claims the Asus partnership is a "done deal", with Google planning to launch "a tablet of the highest quality."
The Nexus tablet was initially expected to feature quad-core Tegra 3 processors, retailing between $199-249, but sources say the Tegra has been removed to reduce the tablet to between $149-$199.
The price cut would make it a truly affordable low-end option for new buyers, undercutting the world's number two selling tablet, the Kindle Fire, which is also powered by Android.
The device is expected to be unveiled in May at the CTIA Wireless show, potentially running on Android Jelly Bean, which is also expected to be released in Q2.
