Does Google's $199 tablet target $499 iPad or Kindle Fire?

Matt Hamblen | June 28, 2012
As Google prepares to unveil a highly-anticipated 7-in. tablet for $199 at Google I/O today, a big question lingers: Is the new Nexus 7 intended to take on the $199 Kindle Fire, or the highly popular $499 iPad?

"The hardware is only part of the recipe," Milanesi said. "Apps, an intuitive user interface and sleek hardware [together] make a winner."

How Google positions its new tablet in the market should be laid out at Google I/O, which kicks off with a keynote at 9:30 a.m. PDT today, followed by a session on "What's new with Android" at 11:45 a.m. PDT.

Computerworld will be following both sessions, tweeting updates at #io12 and offering complete report and blog coverage throughout the remainder of the week.
