As reported earlier that Google is preparing for its own branded 7-inch Android tablet, with Asus hardware on board. The rumor rounded up was the price – it is expected that the tablet will come at a price of $149 or $50 less than the similarly size Kindle Fire. The Verge reports that Google’s supposed initial vision price tag was going to be hard to reach without some serious costs to Google and Asus. Not surprisingly, then, the slate with its current specs is running closer to $249, with the companies hoping to lower costs to make the final price the same — $199 — as Amazon’s best seller.
