Rumor has it that Google will release it’s Nexus 8 tablet later this year – possibly around June/July. The device is thought to feature the latest Android 4.5 Lollipop operating system. It seems that Google may bring it’s focus to the 8 inch market which I feel is the optimal size for smaller tablets. I have the Nexus 7 and may pick up the Nexus 8 if the price is right as I would prefer a slightly bigger screen which can still be held with one hand easily.
Various news site have reported a anonymous Google employee stated the Nexus 8 will not be announced in June at the annual I/O conference but in July instead – it’s hard to know an exact date but we can be sure something is in the works and will be announced soon. It is not yet known who will produce this tablet – some say Google will stay partnered with ASUS and others have hinted at a move to HTC.
Are you looking forward to the Google’s new 8 inch tablet?
