Asus rep confirms Google tablet and Padfone Pad

Google logoRumors have been swirling around for months now about Mountain View designing its very own Google-branded tablet.

Reports have long pointed to Asus being the manufacturer that will actually build the engimatic Google tablet. And now we actually have confirmation from an Asus representative via Android Authority that the company is indeed designing such a device.

The annual Google I/O conference at the end of June would obviously provide an appropriate launching pad for the device.

Unfortunately, we still don't know pricing - although Asus will likely to try to target the $150-$250 price range.

The tablet - believed to be dubbed the Nexus 7 - is also rumored to boast a 7-inch screen and Nvidia Tegra 3 chip.

Interestingly enough, Asus is in talks with US mobile phone carriers to bring the Padfone to the States. According to reports, so far only AT&T has jumped on board to give the device to try. In addition, the $499 Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 is also bound for the US and the AT&T network. The device is said to be arriving by the end of June in a Wi-Fi configuration only, to be followed by an LTE version.
