This just in: it’s really hard to make a tablet that’s even halfway decent on the cheap. Reports The Verge:
Google’s first foray into the tablet market with a co-branded Android device won’t be with us until July at the earliest. The current design was ready to go for May, but Google pushed back the planned release so it could tweak the device, sources close to the project said on Friday.
The Mountain View team plans to make some design changes and hopes to lower the price from the current $249.
Rumor is that if Google delays it until 2015, they should be able to get the price down further. (Unless Apple still has the component market on lockdown, that is.)
