google nexus 10 review 19 640x323

If Apple kick started the tablet race with its original iPad back in 2007, its safe to say that Google’s Nexus 7 tablet significantly boosted the mid-range tablet market. So much so that even Apple released a mini version of their iPad, just so it could too get a footing in this particular market. The Cupertino company is reportedly also eyeing an even cheaper iPad mini so as to increase its penetration. Most 7 inch tablets currently carry price tags of $199, one of them even retails for as low as $129. According to a new report by Digitimes, 2013′s end could bring a new wave of 7 inch tablets that only cost $99.

The report claims that since Asus is offering 8GB MeMO Pad HD 7 inch tablet for $129, there’s a possibility that other brand vendors will follow suit. There’s reportedly a “good chance” that 7 inch Android tablets costing less than a hundred dollars will be available in the retail channel as early as the third quarter of 2013.┬áThe report fails to explain exactly which brand vendors it is talking about, and what hardware specifications these ultra low cost tablets will have.
