Google to Launch $200 Tablet Similar to Rival Kindle Fire in March or April

Companies engaged in manufacturing hi-tech components for global giants like Apple, Google and Amazon suggested that the upcoming tablet from Google will be a device with a 7 inch screen like Amazon's Kindle Fire and not a 9.7 inch screen like iPad's.

According to the same source, which is a component maker for Google's supply chain, Google will launch its own tablet PC in March or April 2012. The seven inch paneled device will be available for less than $200 - this price is same as the price of Kindle Fire.

The device will be an "entertainment device" manufactured to compete with Amazon's very successful Kindle Fire as opposed to Apple iPad and Samsung's Galaxy Tab which are "laptop replacement", reports the Daily mail.

Even though Google has not officially confirmed anything about the device, rumours are very strong that the company is working on its own-brand tablet.

In fact, in an interview with an Italian newspaper, Eric Schmidt, Google's executive chairman, stated, "In the next six months, we plan to market a tablet of the highest quality." This is an exciting time for the company and fans of Google products.
