Nexus 7 of the second-generation processor-based Qualcomm Snapdragon debuts this summer, probably in July. Release, Google-tablet may coincide with the premiere of the updated iPhone . Production of 7-inch Android-device company will Asustek.

Information about the plans of Google published the news agency Reuters. According to sources from Taipei (Taiwan), where the headquarters of Asustek, in the second half of 2013, Google is going to put on the market for about 8 million new tablets. Informants wished to remain anonymous, as they have no right to speak about it publicly. In their reports to the agency very often refers to unnamed sources, whose information is generally accurate, and is confirmed.

Reported that the new Nexus 7 will increase the screen resolution, a thin frame and a computing device manufacture Qualcomm. As you know, Nexus 7, which debuted in June last year, relied on the decision of Nvidia Tegra 3.

Company Nvidia and Qualcomm are in constant competition with each other. However, the dominant position in the processor market for smartphones is still Qualcomm.

“The competition among the suppliers of components for tablet computers increases. Nexus 7 for Nvidia is not such a big loss, the market is flooded with tablets. Nvidia has quickly recovered from the blow, but in the case of Santa Clara are clearly not in favor of the company, ”

– Analyst Len Huang of IDC.

It is expected that the new tablet will be available with a price tag of $ 199, reducing the price of the first Nexus to $ 149. However, Google may behave more aggressively and offer new product for $ 149, removing the previous model of production, suggests a source.

“This strategy is a zero margin. Ninety-seven percent of the total revenue comes from Google ads, so companies need to sell as many mobile devices in order to attract more customers, ”

– Says Arthur Liao, an analyst at Fubon Securities.

Large sales may accelerate the development of applications for Android-plates.

“Center of gravity of the tablet market is shifted to devices with small screen size, which will always be offered at an aggressive price. This trend will be observed further, ”

– Huang says.
