$99 Nexus rumours reemerge

Written by Fudzilla staff



Single core chip, built by Quanta


Rumours of a new Google tablet with a $99 price tag have been floating around for more than a month and now they’re back, courtesy of Digitimes.

Although Digitimes has a hit-and-miss track record, the latest report is rather interesting because it is rather specific. The new tablet is supposedly based on a single-core WonderMedia chip, HannStar is in charge of the display and the whole thing should be put together by Quanta.

It’s still unclear whether the tablet will feature the same 1280x800 screen as the proper Nexus 7, as it would drive cost up and consume a lot of computing power, so it doesn’t seem like a good match for a single-core processor.

Asustek made it clear that it has no plans to introduce a $99 Nexus 7. However, this does not mean Google would not try to go it alone. A $99 tablet would be a great seller in underdeveloped markets and it could make ultra-low-end white box tablets from Chinese vendors a thing of the past.

However, we are still not convinced.
