    Rumor: Google’s $199 “Nexus tablet” to be made by ASUS, include quad-core Tegra 3 | Android and Me

    TL;DR It's rumored that Google approached Asus after CES to see if they could use that as the next Nexus tablet. If this is true, I'm fully convinced that I'm buying one.

    True or not if they do make a 4 or 8 Gig model at $199 I will still pay $249 for the 16G model. Nexus Branding or not.
    I do hope they create the lower memory version to 'compete' with the Color Nook and Amazon Fire for those not willing to pay the extra $50.
    True or not this rumor is getting this tablets budding reputation some attention out there in the public's eyes, and would even more so if it actually does get the Nexus branding.

    i agree, I will pay $250 for a 16GB version, just as long as it comes out. I don't need it to be a "Nexus tablet", but wouldn't complain if it was.

    I too am on board with this! I'm pretty excited. Only a few months away too. If it comes out in May I will be picking one up. Google Nexus or not...I just want a stock tablet that's not $500+. If Asus can make this come dream come true then I welcome the device!

    This mythical device has caught my attention. I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus a couple months ago, but it's not everything I had hoped. It was my first tablet purchase and now that I have noticed what I am missing I have turned to this device. It looks promising. I just hope the other news about it not getting a quad core Tegra 3 processor now, aren't true. Time will tell.

    Where is the news saying that it may not be getting the Tegra 3? Maybe I missed it. Anyways a link would be great!

    Thanks...

    I have read about it on a few sites (rumor only) that said it well be scrapped to make a cheaper (possibly Nexus) device. Hope it isn't true. I would rather them release this device and a cheaper tablet later on for the holidays if they wanted. The M370T just had awesome specs.

    It's not news as much as rumor. Here's a link to one of the sites stating the memo becoming the nexus device and losing the tegra 3 processor:

    Well thats lame! If this is true then I will be moving on and waiting for a better priced tablet. No need to buy into old technology. I thought Google wanted to take the tablet business over...Maybe not. The Nook already did this for this price so it prolly wont be buying any real new crowd over. But the Google Play Store access is still cool. Just not enough to make me jump to the tablet world.

    Sad Panda day for me! (If this holds true)

    I honestly hope it's not true. It sounds to me like Google would be RUINING a device that is nearly perfect in every way. I don't see why ASUS would agree to lower their standards to appease Google. Maybe they see it an honor that the almighty Google has smiled on them?

    This is what im hoping.

    I hope the 370T doesnt become the google tablet. I rather they release the 370T very soon, and then release the google tablet a little later.

    I dont care if it's a nexus tablet or not. If the specs are what the memo was listed with, or very close, for 200-250, this tablet is going to be worth a lot of people's consideration.

    Been waiting for a reasonably priced tablet that's not the fire. This looks like the one, google branded or not.

    What if instead of calling it a nexus tablet they call it the Google Play Tablet. Think about it. They rebranded there marketplace and if they want to compete with amazon they need to market their new play store.

    For what it's worth, the original product as shown at CES was a real show stopper. But if Google is thinking they can some how get me spend less money to get a less capable product then they are dead wrong. I felt then and still feel that $250 is a reasonable price for a tablet that had the all the specs the 370t included. As far as I'm concerned release both the original 370t and what ever less expensive product and let the market be the judge. Minimum specs for me are the Tega 3 processor, 16g of memory, a working GPS sensor, and a decent screen. A back camera would be nice since I use the "Daily Journey" app, all other apps I already have what I need and will only consider what new ones will actually fit in with my life style. To repeat $250 is a great price for a 7 inch tablet and not have to live with the limitations of the Amazon or Nook products. Also to both Google and Asus "JUST RELEASE THE CONFOUNDED THING".
