Asus and Google would work on low cost version of the Nexus 7

According to the site Digitimes, Asus and Google prepare low cost version of their tablet Nexus 7, which could be sold below $ 100 by the end of the year. Another version, thinner, could accompany him.

Digitimes , citing "industry sources," explains Google and Asus is preparing to stiff competition at the end of the year, particularly because of the expected launch of a 7-inch iPad mini.  The two firms, which launched in late August their tablet versions 8 and 16 GB respectively 199 and 249 euros, have not said their last word for 2012.

 We thus find the program a slimmer version of the current model, which would be available in the U.S. at a price of $ 199 - the price of the current 8GB version in the United States - but also a model that would cost $ 99.

 At this stage of the rumor, impossible to know what size could imply lower prices: Digitimes merely states that these new versions, Asus would have turned to the Taiwanese manufacturer for HannStar Display screens.

 The site Digitimes is not always exemplary reliability when it comes to speculate on future products, but this rumor could motivate some buyers wait a bit before investing in a tablet.
