Google Tablet Rumored To Be Just Weeks Away

Google is gearing up to release its first official Android-powered tablet.

We’ve known for months that such a device is coming, but only now are we getting a sense of just how close the launch may be.

On Friday, sources close to the project tell The Verge that a May launch was initially planned, but the project was pushed in order for the Internet search giant to make additional tweaks to the product.

As of this writing, the source asserts, the Google tablet will likely reach consumers in July.

The tablet will reportedly cost $249 or less.

The tablet, made in partnership with Taiwan’s Asustek Computer, currently comes with a 7-inch screen, an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and is Wi-Fi-only.

The device will run Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
