Following yesterday’s alleged leaked images of Google’s first Nexus tablet, a report from BusinessInsider today, which cited sources with “knowledge of the company’s plans,” claimed Google is set to announce the device at the end of this month. The report is unclear whether this is the same device as the Asus Google tablet pictured in the leaked images, but the source claims Google will introduce magazine subscription functionality with major publishers alongside the tablet:
Google is expected to announce its first Android tablet at the end of the month, according to a source with knowledge of the company’s plans… The new tablet will also offer magazine subscriptions from some major magazine publishers, our source says.
Previous reports from The Wall Street Journal claimed Google plans to open its own online tablet store to sell Google-branded tablets directly to customers. We are expecting to hear a lot more on June 27 at Google I/O.
