Some of you might have noticed the words ‘them’ and products’. Good catch. The rumor pegs more than one Nexus Tablet to be built and sold. The rumor mill is a buzz, full of more than one device in the pipeline. If we were to take a stab at what their plans would be, we would have to say various sizes. Potentially a 7-inch, 9-inch and 10.1-inch. All ranging in price of course. Coby has proven that a descent ICS tablet can be built and sold for under $200. What is stopping Google from creating something similar, only better.
If Google subsidizes the sale of the tablet, they sure as heck can’t ask you to sign a lengthy contract. Rather they expect to make up the difference in Play Store revenue. Which isn’t to terrible of a thing really. Google already claims 30% of app sales. If you put that into a round about number, an app that is $1.00, Google gets .30 cents. If that app sells 100,000 copies, Google makes $30,000. Not a bad profit margin really. Especially since they had nothing to do with the development of the application and only provided the market location for developers to sell their work. It isn’t rocket science.
The way I see it, Google is seeing the gap created by manufacturers and carriers in the tablet market. If they can build something stellar and make it affordable for the general public the return in app purchase for the tablet will be huge. Look at the Kindle Fire for instance. THey sold millions of them, lost money on every sale too. Hoping to make up the difference in sales through the Amazon app store. Seems to be working out pretty well for them. Could you imaging what a $200 tablet that is faster, better and stock would do for consumers and the Play Store? If the rumor is true and Google pulls it off, this is going to be HUGE!
