Google’s Nexus tablet will reportedly ship in June with an initial volume of 600,000 units per month, according to Digitimes. The slate, which is being co-developed by ASUS, is set to be released in July according to the report. The publications claims that Google originally planned to release its 7-inch tablet in May, however the design of the device did not meet its expectations and the cost was too high. As a result, the product was delayed until July for some minor adjustments. The Internet giant has high hopes for its own-brand tablet, shipments of which are expected to reach between 2 million and 2.5 million units in 2012. Previous rumors claim the Wi-Fi-only tablet will be equipped with a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and could cost as little as $ 199. The slate may be unveiled at Google’s annual I/O conference, which begins on June 27th.
