Asus may not build the next Nexus 7

Earlier this week, a report hit DigiTimes talking about how Asus is working on a number of new tablets that it is planning to bring to market, but the real question is why. Obviously, some companies (Samsung comes to mind) think that more is always better, but companies with more limited resources like Asus usually have to be careful about where it puts its efforts...

There was a Nexus 7 just released a little while ago. Why are we already talking about the next one?

Maybe because there already is rumor about the future? (rhetorical question)

It will be octacore snapdragon + over 400ppi screen, 3gb of ram and it will be running android 5.0

That's good news to me... Asus build quality is just not very good imo.

Actually the higher end asus android tablets are some of the best quality tablets for android. On the Nexus devices they cut corners to make it worth making. If it was super high build quality it would not be profitable.

Which Asus device you are talking about? I am pretty much happy with Nexus7 2013 build quality.

Nexus devices are hardly profitable to manufacturers really. Since they're aimed at selling as many as possible to people to get them to view ad content. It's not hard to understand why a company would want to profit more off of their own native products than subbing to be a proxy for a product like Google's Nexus line up.
