The Nexus 7 might be about to get cheaper: in addition to predicting a summer launch for the next-gen 7, a source tells Reuters Google (GOOG) is thinking of either selling the device for $149, or selling it for $199 while discounting the current version (starts at $199). The next-gen 7 is also said to have a thinner bezel (like the iPad Mini) and a higher-res display. The reported pricing could put pressure on Amazon (AMZN), which sells the Kindle Fire HD for $199 and the current Fire for $159. Separately, SamMobile reports Samsung (SSNLF.PK) is working on a new high-end 10" Galaxy Tab, and 5.8" and 6.3" "Galaxy Mega" phablets.
