Asus denies that it is working on a $99 Google Nexus tablet

Yesterday's story about the sub-$100 Google Nexus tablet has been refuted by Asus and ironically, the source for the story is the same source that broke the story in the first place; the Asus built Google Nexus 7 has been a huge success in the low priced tablet market...

It's not ironic if one thing is stated which is cancelled by a new report later. You should know phonearena, you present things like that all the time.

I always thought it was too good to be the truth, at 99$ it would have a awful screen, awful processor, awful everything.

Just because a manufacturer "denies it" does not mean it won't turn out to be true or at least somewhat true. Manufacturers deny unannounced products all the time. It's almost a given that if you ask a manufacturer if they are working on X device, they will say they have no idea what you are talking about. I'm not saying ASUS is working on such a device, but I'm saying that it doesn't mean they aren't working on a device either.

If it was aimed at the $100 mark, I would guess they could actually build one with a dual-core TI processor along with a 1024x600 display. It's not impossible, but you have to consider how many people would buy such a low-end device when they can pay $100 more for a pretty top-notch device. I'm guessing they are really working on a Nexus 7 II or Nexus 10 device. They may sell the old Nexus 7 for cheaper ($150 or less) when they finally do come out with the second version. Again, this is just my hypothesis. November can't come here any sooner.

If this is true, they need to lower the Nexus 7 to $99 and create the Nexus 7 II to $199 price point. That would make sense.

Nexus 7 for a hundred bucks, I'd have no excuses to not buy one then.

They need to build a $249 10 inch tablet.

That would be nice, but I'll take even $300 N10
