A representative from Asus recently confirmed that the seven-inch Google Nexus tablet will be introduced within the month of June and will be priced at less than $250.

The anonymous representative made the revelation during the recent Computex trade event although no other information were provided on the upcoming Google Nexus tablet offering of Asus. Even as the accuracy of the report remains uncertain, Eric Schmidt had revealed last December that Google will be releasing a high-quality tablet within six months time.

Following this Google revealed its intention of going into the budget tablet market.

A month ago, a Google Nexus tablet was spotted on Rightware, a benchmarking website. The tablet will reportedly feature a quad-core Tegra 3 processor from Nvidia and will be using the Jelly Bean Android platform.

Last January, the MeMo 370T was introduced by Asus, which is a seven-inch Android-powered tablet that features a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and will reportedly be priced at around $250. However no other reports have emerged following this announcement, which resulted to reports of the possibility that the device will become the Google Nexus tablet.

Nvidia also revealed a reference design for quad-core tablets that will be priced at less than $200. It may also be possible that the upcoming Google Nexus tablet will be using this particular tablet design.

It may be possible for Google to unveil the Google Nexus tablet during its upcoming I/O event at the end of the month. The upcoming device may be appealing to gadget enthusiasts since the Google Nexus tablet will offer access to the Google Play market unlike the Amazon Kindle Fire. It will also offer the latest version of the Android platform without additional customizations.

In addition to the upcoming Google Nexus tablet, the Asus Transformer Infinity 700 is still on schedule for its late June release. However it appears that US mobile service providers are not too keen in offering the Asus PadFone since it would offer free tethering to a bigger display screen.
