If you thought the Google i/o there were also too many novelty (the triplet Nexus 7,Nexus Q and Jelly Bean) were wrong. Google has actually scheduled for launch in the coming weeks (months, more likely) of an elder brother of the Nexus 7, a Nexus 10. The news comes from Digi Times and, more specifically, from a source inside the producers of touch panels for Google.
The inside source to Wintek (the company that produced the touch panels of the Nexus 7) reported that Google is planning to take advantage of the touch panels coming precisely from Wintek and AU Optronics for a new Nexus by 10 inches.
Wintek shipped 500.000 units of OGS (one glass solution) touch panels for Google’s Nexus 7 tablet PCs in June, according to industry sources. The company’s total shipments of OGS touch panels to Google will top one million units during the May-July period.
Google also sources OGS touch panels from TPK Holding, which ships touch panels from its subsidiary Cando, the sources noted.
Google also reportedly plans to launch a 10-inch tablet with touch panels which come from AU Optronics (AUO) and touch panel maker Wintek Wintek, the largest supplier for Google, according to computerannals.
Obviously you know nothing about probable date of arrival, but it makes sense that if Google intends to capture that market share still firmly anchored to competition may soon launch this new, mysterious product.
Furthermore, such a device could be a further incentive towards the developers, who would be motivated (by the presence of a low cost tablet by 10 inches on the market) to develop and adapt a greater number of applications dedicated to tablet.
