Asus rep confirms Nexus tablet coming at the end of the month
The Nexus tablet is also expected to include NVIDIA's new Kai version of its quad-core Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.3GHz with low cost DDR2 RAM. The idea is to keep the price as low as possible, with the chance that we might see a sub $200 price tag on the 7 inch device to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire. And the hope is that on a price to performance basis, the Nexus Tablet would be superior to the Apple iPhone. Of course, there are rumors that Apple will be releasing a 7.85 inch mini version of the Apple iPad.
Google Asus Nexus 7 which appeared on the Rightwave Benchmark web site. Not only did the tablet show up running that quad-core 1.3GHz Tegra 3 we just mentioned, it also was said to be powered by the JRN51B build of Android 4.1. Much of this information confirms what our tipsters have told us and what we passed along to you just last week when we obtained what purportedly is a draft of press images of the tablet.
The ASUS rep also let loose with the word that while most carriers in the States hate the Asus Padfone, (which is now offered unsubsidized in the States via Negri Electronics), the transforming smartphone, tablet and laptop device will be coming to AT&T if the slow-moving talks can conclude. Also expected to launch in the U.S. via AT&T is the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700) coming in the end of this month in both a Wi-Fi and LTE model with the latter said to be heading to the nation's second largest carrier.

This isnot loose lips but a choreographed part of the release program,creating a demand an audience. Hopefully a whole bunch of people will believe this is a must have item.Weeks later when its just sitting there gathering dust,thhey'll. Realise how they've conned themselves. That said I love the Padfone concept.

Maybe a "Nexus PadFone" will be one of the five fabled Nexus devices launched this November...

I'd love to get the Infinity on AT&T. I love my transformer tf300, having an updated model on LTE would be even better.
