Rumors of the upcoming Google Tablet release date have heated up lately, and many consumers are anxious to know when the gadget will launch. Thus far, the company has not confirmed a release date, but sources say the device is delayed until July.
Reports of the delay come after Apple released the iPad 3, and many are speculating Google could be looking for a way to make their mobile device even less expensive than planned. Hopefully, the company won't end up sacrificing quality to lower consumer costs.
The device was expected out earlier than July 2012, but sources say the company is rethinking their strategy to lower the cost from $249. If the gadget keeps the current pricing it will cost $50 more than the Kindle Fire, but still lower than the iPad 3 price.
Will the Google Tablet release date wreak havoc on iPad 3 sales? The current price for an Apple iPad tablet is $499, which puts the device at the higher end of the market at a time when other companies are looking for ways to make more thrifty models. Does this mean the iPad will lose its reign atop the favorite tablets list?
Apple recently took some backlash after consumer reports surfaced stating iPad 3 overheating issues were causing concern. Apple denies any issue with the newly release device, despite complaints.
What do you think about the upcoming Google Tablet release date? Should consumers be worried over delay rumors? Will the device top the iPad lineup?
