Why is Asus making the Google Nexus 7 Tablet and not Motorola?

The Google Nexus 7 tablet has pretty much already leaked in full yesterday. Bloomberg is also again confirming that Google will unveil the $199 7-inch Google Tablet today at the Google I/O 2012 keynote.

What is interesting is that Google chose to go with Asus and not with their own hardware company they acquired recently. Motorola Mobility makes also Android tablets. Why Asus? A Motorola made Google Tablet would have been a great start for the new Google hardware unit. Of course there is all the talk about Chinese Wall and not giving Motorola any advantage over other Android partners, but hey even Microsoft is doing it now.

The Google Nexus 7 is a 7-inch (1,200x800px, IPS) tablet running on a 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3, GeForce 12-core GPU, 1GB RAM, 8/16GB SSD, NFC, 1.2MP front facing camera, Android Jelly Bean OS and 9 hour battery life. The Asus made Nexus 7 will sell for $199 and $249 respectively. This pricing is matching the Kindle Fire. The hardware specifications sounds though much more powerful than the Kindle Fire.
