Digitimes joins Phone Arena in reporting Google (GOOG) is working on a Nexus 7 tablet with a 1080p display. The device will supposedly be made by Asus (Phone Arena reported LG) and sell for $199-$249 (like the current model). That would make it a tougher rival to the iPad Mini, which sports a 1024x768 display (for now) but maintains a big edge in tablet-specific apps. The site adds total Nexus 7 shipments will surpass 6M by month's end - Asus reported of ramping sales for the Nvidia-powered (NVDA) tablet in October.

  • I have a couple of friends with the Nexus 7, and they are slow and clunky compared to the iPad mini and Regular iPad, which I own.

     

    Even they admit (and they're huge tech geek android fanboys) that the iPad is definitely better, after years of hating it.

     

    In the end the better product will win, especially at these low price points (people have always been willing to spend 400-1000 on computers that they will use full time).

  • I bet Apple is shaking in their boots. I'm surprised Google is even charging for it.
