Google is presently working to make its Nexus Tablet release a remarkable one in order to give Apple’s iPad a tough competition
The launch of Nexus is due by mid of the next year. The chairman Eric Schmidt said while giving interview to an Italian newspaper that the device would be of highest quality and called Steve Jobs “the Michelangelo of our time’. He also stated that his company would have to compete hard in the tablet market.
Schmidt did not get deep into the information and details’ regarding the potential specs of Nexus, but his company has only utilized the tablet on those high quality smartphones which are pure Google devices. In short, Nexus contain the version of latest Android OS without any kind of ‘bloatware’ by any manufacturer.
The Nexus Tablet will also be high-end, and expected to run Android’s 4.0 ICS platform. To gain power against the iPad, Android tablets have struggled a lot, but critics’ consider ICS as much improved and advanced OS. They have an opinion that it has almost everything of need to go up against iOS. Nobody yet knows the Google’s exact marketing strategy with Nexus tablet. There are no launch dates, manufacturing partners or s Barnes & Noble‘s Nook Tablet pecs, but the chairman’s announcement that it would directly compete with Apple is what going to make it stand out. Many other companies like RIM, Motorola and HP, similar to the iPad have rolled out tablet offerings, but failed in bringing new devices to the market in order to take on Apple’s iPad.
Amazon’s Kindle Fire, priced low than iPad at 200 USD is intended for those customers who despite of finding price too steep would still be interested in tablets. Similarly, Barnes & Noble‘s Nook Tablet retails the same package and specs as the Fire at 250 USD. Although the two products are barely two months old, sales have been good for both companies.
Brand name of Nexus has accumulated favour from users in the smartphones, but it is to be seen if it’s strong enough to strive to the tablet that has same price as iPad. Hopes are high for Google’s Nexus that it might be termed as a true iPad competitor, but if the mission is not accomplished, it will join the list of those products that couldn’t throw king off its thrown.
