Google Nexus tablet only out in July?

Google Nexus tablet only out in July?Google's own-branded Nexus tablet looks set to be one of the more interesting arrivals on the mobile scene in 2012 – especially if claims of a Kindle Fire-bothering price tag are to be believed.

We'll have to wait a little longer than expected to find out, however, as sources close to the project say the tablet's launch has been put back from May to July.

It's taken a fair while for the details of Google's first Nexus tablet to come together, but we now know that the Asus-made 7in slate will feature an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (obviously) and will be Wi-Fi-only.

However, with the current forecasted price expected to be around the $249 (£155) mark, rather than the $149-$199 previously rumoured, it's said that Google has decided to hold back on launching the tablet next month to work on lowering the price, and make a few design tweaks, ahead of a rescheduled July launch.

That's what The Verge's sources are saying anyway, and as usual we're not told who those sources are. We'll just have to wait and see.
