Larry Page: Google is focused on delivering low priced Android tablets
By now, you’d have to have been living under a rock to miss all the Internet buzz about Google and its plans to launch a low priced Nexus tablet that will put a thorn in the side of other similarly priced devices, like the Amazon Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. During yesterday’s Google earnings call, CEO Larry Page was asked about Google’s future plans with tablets. Keep reading after the break to find out what he had to say.
“We’re very excited about tablets,” he said. “Obviously there’s been a lot of success on some lower-price tablets that run Android, maybe not the full Google version of Android. But we definitely believe that there’s going to be a lot of success at the lower end of the market as well with lower price products… It’s definitely an area we think is important and we’re quite focused on. “
As a longtime Android enthusiast, I’m all about the idea of a Nexus tablet — especially one that I will be able to afford. It also doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the tablet will see high sales either. With affordable pricing and the Google Nexus moniker, I think Google will have their work cut out for them in keeping up with demand. Luckily, word has it that Asus will be working with the search engine giant to produce the tablet, and we all know how good Asus’ devices are.
Bet your bottom dollar. When this device launches — I. Will. Own. One.
