Google yesterday went ahead with turning the long rumoured stories of its Asus-branded Nexus 7 tablet down, and make it public in front of all, but there is one story that still many of us not know, that how this 7-inch device comes into existence. In order to bring the picture in front of all about the development of the tablet, Asus’ chairman Jonney Shih and Google’s head of Android Andy Rubin have revealed that the Nexus 7 is being sold at what it cost the company to built it and more interesting is that both the companies built the product in just four months time period.
The condition before building up the device was that Nexus tablet was to be ready in four months, would be high-end device and the total cost should not be more than $200, Shih told AllThingsD. Rubin on account of tablet development says, “We went from zero to working product in four months.” He even admits on saying that Google now having the full ecosystem in place, the company is having that “missing piece” with it now.
