According to the source, Google will release the tablet in addition to a $199 version. While the rumor is a bit sketch (DigiTimes has published nonsense before), I do believe we'll be seeing decent tablet prices dip below the $199 mark over the coming months. What once seemed an incredible price for a tablet ($199 for the first Kindle Fire), is now the price for not just the Kindle Fire HD but also the Nexus 7 and Barnes and Noble Nook HD+. There's nowhere to go but down.
If Google did release a Nexus tablet for $99, it would send shockwaves throughout the entire industry and open the tablet market to just to about every kind of customer out there. While it's just a rumor for now, that doesn't stop me from dreaming such a tablet will one day be a reality.
