    "It's been nearly a year since Google released its first 7 inch tablet, and now it looks like the company is preparing to launch a second-generation Nexus 7.

    Reuters reports that according to sources in the know, Google's next 7 inch tablet will have better specs and a cheaper price tag than the original. It could ship around July."

    Google to sell second-gen Nexus 7 tablet from July: sources | Reuters (click for full article)

    by Clare Jim - April 3, 2013

    "(Reuters) - Google Inc will launch a new version of its Nexus 7 tablet powered by Qualcomm Inc's Snapdragon processor around July, two sources told Reuters, as the software giant pushes deeper into the cut-price mobile hardware market.

    Google is aiming to ship as many as eight million of the Asustek-made tablets in the second half of the year, throwing down the gauntlet to other low-end tablets such as Amazon.com Inc's Kindle Fire and Apple Inc's iPad mini, the sources with knowledge of the new product said."

    According to the Reuters article, the price of the next-generation Nexus 7 hasn't been finalized yet.

    From the Reuters article:

    "Pricing is yet to be determined and Google's plans are fluid, the sources said. Market leader Apple is expected to launch new iPads this year as well, possibly forcing its competitors to change their assumptions.

    Google may choose to sell the new gadget for $199, the same as the first generation rolled out last June, while the old model may be discounted, one of the sources said. Alternatively, the new tablet could be priced more competitively at $149 and the previous model discontinued, the source added."

    Somewhat conflicting rumors but if Google expects to sell 8 million of them in the second quarter, I am betting on the $150 price.
