Google is expected to launch its first tablet in a couple of months, and the dirt cheap 7-incher could spell trouble for the likes of Acer, Lenovo and Samsung.

The upcoming tablet, which has yet to be named, is said to target Amazon’s Kindle Fire, with a superior spec and the same $199 price tag. However, it could also put a lot of pressure on Lenovo and Samsung, as it will render their 7-inch offerings uncompetitive.
