Google’s first tablet imminent – report

Google’s first 7″ tablet will apparently be shipping soon, according to a report from DigiTimes.

The tablet, co-developed with Asus, was reportedly due to start shipping in May but concerns about the pricing and design of the unit pushed the shipping date back. The DigiTimes report, citing sources “from the upstream supply chain”, claims that the tablets will start shipping in June and will go on sale in July this year.

The initial shipment is believed to be 600,000 units, with an estimated 2 to 2.5 million units expected to be sold by the end of the year.

When contacted, Asus declined to comment.
