If you’re the sort looking at the slick new Google Nexus 7 tablet and thinking what it really needs to pry money out of your wallet is a larger screen, you may get your wish. Google is reportedly already working on a 10-inch version of the Nexus 7, presumably to be called the Nexus 10. A second tablet with a 10-inch screen would certainly signal Google is ready to push hard in the tablet market and fight the iPad.
The tip comes from DigiTimes sources within touch panel screen manufacturers. It’s worth noting that DigiTimes sources aren’t known as the most reliable, so have your sodium ready. Insiders claim that Google is planning to use 10-inch touch panels from AU Optronics and Wintek. Wintek is thought to be providing the screens for the Nexus 7.
There is no indication of when the rumored Nexus 10 might launch. It would be safe to assume Google would sell a larger Nexus 10 tablet at a break even price too, just as its doing with the Nexus 7. If this rumor turns out to be true, this could be the first tablet to really be able to challenge the iPad. If Google could build a Nexus 10 with similar better features as the iPad at a cheaper price, I think consumers would buy.
