Although it may seem as though it was an obvious move this is the first news we’ve received regarding a Nexus tablet from the Google stable, however what was not obvious is that a new manufacturer is to produce this new Android powered super tab.
Although not 100% confirmed Eldar Murtazin from over at Mobile Review which is a well trusted mobile blog believes that LG are to be the choice of manufacturer for the new Google Nexus tablet which makes good sense since the company are releasing a few Android powered tablets over the coming months including the much anticipated LG G-Slate.
Google will use the Nexus tab in the same way they do their Nexus range of mobile phones which includes the latest Nexus S smartphone from Samsung, to develop the new Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet specific operating system to rival the best selling iPad and now iPad 2 since its release on Friday.
This means that the Google Nexus G, Tab, Pad, Slate or whatever else its final name will be will offer the very best in Android performance and receive the very latest updates before any other device on the market, Android has now taken over the iOS on new mobile phone sales in the US according to surveys carried out by commScore and Nielson but the tablet market is still very much dominated by Apple’s iPad.
Google will be looking to take a major chunk out of the iPad 2 sales with their new tablet and judging from sales of their Nexus S handset they stand a good chance, another way that the search engine giant has made sure of this is with the bad news that previously released Android tablets by other manufacturers will not be able to get an upgrade to the new Honeycomb 3.0 OS which will upset many a Samsung Galaxy Tab owner.
