Following the introduction of the seven-inch Google Nexus tablet, reports have emerged on the possibility that the company will be unveiling a ten-inch model of its latest tablet offering.

According to sources within the industry, a tech site based in Taiwan has reportedly revealed that Google is planning to release a ten-inch model of the Google Nexus tablet. The upcoming model of the device will reportedly feature display panels that will be manufactured by AU Optronics and Wintek.

The touch -screen panels that will be used on the seven-inch model of the Google Nexus tablet is manufactured by Wintek, which has reportedly received an order of 500,000 panels that will be used on the seven-inch device.

However the release date, price tag and the possible features of the supposed ten-inch Google Nexus tablet were not revealed in the report. It should be taken into consideration that the website has had a number of inaccurate reports in the past, which led industry watchers to take the report with a grain of salt.

However recent comments by the Google Android partner engineering director, Patrick Brady, have given indications that the company may not offer a ten-inch model of the Google Nexus tablet since the company reportedly opted for a seven-inch device since it offers better portability.

Brady revealed that a ten-inch tablet may not be small enough for reading and gaming and that the company wanted the device to be portable.  The company has put it much effort in the design of the hardware and software to allow it to offer multiple functions. The company wanted the Google Nexus tablet to be suitable for reading as well as watching movies and playing games.

However if the seven-inch model of the Google Nexus tablet will be successful in the market, the company may opt to offer a ten-inch model that may be appealing to some consumers in the market.
