A new tablet device which can well be considered the tablet equivalent of the Nexus line of smartphones in now under development. For this, Google has partnered with LG, with the latter reported to have agreed to all the terms put forward by the search giant. The ‘Google Nexus Tablet‘ (as it is called until the tablet is provided with an official name) will of course run Android 3.0 Honeycomb and is likely to be ready for a market launch during summer or early fall 2011.
According to rumors, the main motivating factor that prompted Google to develop the tablet is to create a core Android reference design tablet, much like the Nexus smartphones. The tablet will also be the first to be fed with future operating system updates.
However, almost everything else about the tablet is under wraps right now, so we don’t know what surprises the tablet will offer when it’s ready. At the same time, with Honeycomb being in the center of it all, we can guess at some of the specs. Dual core processors and so on. There is no word either on the carrier details of the Google Nexus Tablet or whether Google will be offering the tablet directly to consumers.
