Nexus 7 2 from ASUS and Google has been in the news a lot as of late, especially since it never saw the light of day at Google's I/O developer event earlier this year. After countless leaks, reports, and rumors, it's been spotted clearing multiple different certification processes as of late, and is slated to be announced later this month.
Nexus 7 from ASUS and Google. After expecting it to arrive at Google I/O, only to have the event pass with no such news, we're now seeing some additional details to get us excited. According to one Google+ user an ASUS rep told him Q2 for the release date and the full spec list. Read on for the latest.
Google didn't see fit to sit around and watch all the other big tier companies wander casually onto Indian soil (You know, the country with the second largest population in the world) and take up all their possible mobile sales, so they've decided to do something about it. In an effort to broaden the Android user-base and push sales of Android equipped devices in India, Google has taken the initiative to open their first store in New Delhi's Select CityWalk.
Google have been busy lately, but we're all still waiting to see what exactly they've been working on. With the new second-gen Nexus 7 not arriving at Google I/O as expected, we've now been seeing multiple reports on the slate, but still no sighting. After an unknown 7-inch ASUS tablet listed as the K008 with Android 4.3 cleared the Bluetooth SIG last week, today it's passing through the FCC.
Google would introduce the second generation Nexus 7 on a mid-summer release. Mainly in order to compete with all the other big names out there who are also slated for summer tablet releases. We've been toying with the concept of whether or not Google would ever actually bring it out in the first place, so to hear that they are, definitely has our interest piqued.
ASUS had plenty to announce at Computex 2013, and their new Transformer Book Trio is the oddest of the bunch, but looks pretty interesting. In what they're calling the "world's first three-in-one notebook, tablet, and desktop PC." The Transformer Book Trio does it all. Runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Windows 8, and even can be your desktop PC if you'd like.
ASUS has been quite busy. The folks from ASUS just announced a slew of new products on the first day of Computex 2013 in Taiwan. From a 6-inch FonePad Note to take on Samsung's GALAXY to tons of tablets and more. One that stood out however, is the New Transformer Pad Infinity complete with an ultra HD display and NVIDIA's new quad-core Tegra 4 processor.
ASUS had been teasing a 6-inch note-taking tablet ahead of Computex and now that the show has officially kicked off, there has been an announcement for the FonePad Note. ASUS has yet to announce every detail that we were hoping to see, however we do know the FonePad Note will be launching with a 6-inch Super IPS+ display and powered by a dual-core 1.6GHz Atom Z2560 processor.
