While Google has made a splash in the smartphone market with their Android OS, it hasn’t enjoyed the same success when it comes to their tablets. Now the search giant has supposedly teamed up with Taiwanese manufacturer Asus to deliver the first Nexus branded tablet device, which is supposedly hitting the streets come July. Unlike the Nexus series of smartphones, the Nexus branded tablet is supposedly being created to compete with cheaper tablet alternatives like the Kindle Fire. The Verge says that the new device will sport an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 7-inch screen and will be WiFi only. The device reportedly should have only cost $249 (which fits in nicely with Asus’ promised price for the MeMo 370T) and had a release date of  May, but Google is supposedly postponing the launch to make some design changes and to lower the price of the device further.
