Google Nexus 7 Tablet to Launch With Magazine Subscriptions

A new report released from Business Insider today revealed Google's plans to launch its upcoming Google Nexus 7 tablet with magazine subscription functionality.

The publication stated that Google is expected to announce its first Android tablet at the end of this month, and that the new device will offer magazine subscriptions from some major magazine publishers.

Business Insider claims to have received this information from a source with knowledge of the company's plans.

The Wall Street Journal also recently reported that Google plans to open its own online tablet store to sell Google-branded tablets directly to customers. More information regarding the device is expected to be revealed at this year's Google I/O event on June 27.

The tablet also recently surfaced in a RightWare benchmark test and some information on the device was revealed during it.

It will be called the Google Asus Nexus 7, according to the test, and will boast a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, run Android 4.1, and carry a 768 x 1280 resolution.

ASUS is now confirmed to be a part of this long-rumored Google tablet and many insiders say this new device will look very similar to some of the other gadgets put out by the Taiwanese manufacturer.

This Google ASUS Nexus Tablet is set to go head to head with other 7-inch tablets on the market including the Amazon Kindle Fire, and Barnes and Noble Nook tablet priced at $199 and $250.

ASUS and Google should try to keep their tablet in that same price range if they want to see success in the market with this product.

Amazon seems to have created a demand for smaller, more affordable tablets and Google has taken notice.
