Google Nexus Branded Tablet Arriving in Six Months?

Android maker Google is planning to dish out a Nexus branded tablet device within the next six months.

Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt said in an interview with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera that the company has planned to offer a tablet device in the next six months. He refrained from giving any further details about the tablet but did say that it would be of ‘highest quality'.

The company has released Android powered Nexus branded smartphones, with the latest one being the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Google has also launched Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which has been designed for both smartphones and tablet devices.

Google is planning to acquire smartphone and tablet maker Motorola, a deal which is being reviewed by regulators. There is no doubt that the tablet will be made by Motorola and will be carrying the Nexus brand name.

The company has also created a portfolio of web properties that would allow it to provide the content services to its tablet services.

Apart from having its own Android application store, which recently crossed the 10 billion app download mark, the company also as its own music locker streaming called Google Music, movie rental and streaming service via YouTube, its own eBook store called Google Books and a social networking platform called Google Plus.
