Ahh yes, the “Nexus” tablet. We personally believe that it will be Google Play branded and not “Nexus” branded, but that’s another discussion for another day. Today, it’s about the release of the tablet that all of us want to get our hands on. According to new reports, Google and Asus have delayed the launch of the tablet from May and are hoping to have it ready by July. At its current state, the tablet sits at $249, but Google wants that to be at the Kindle Fire-esque $199 price point and is looking to tweak the build.

While that may be slightly disappointing, we should remind you that Google I/O happens the last week of June, so “July” sounds about right. What better way for Google to show off their new hardware than at their own conference, which just so happened to add on a 3rd day for the first time. We will be there to cover it all.

Still holding off tablet plans until Google and Asus can release their 7-incher?
