Google picked Asus for Nexus 7 because no Other Partner can Move that Fast

Oh no he didn't! Andy Rubin said about Asus: “I don’t think there would have been any other partner that could move that fast.” Is this a big diss to Google's Motorola Mobility?

Google picked Asus for Nexus 7 because no Other Partner can Move that Fast

Google unveiled the $199 Google Nexus 7 tablet at the Google I/O 2012 yesterday. The 7-inch tablet is a powerful tablet running on the new Quad-core Tegra 3. Yesterday I asked the question why is Asus making the Nexus 7 and not Motorola. According to an interview on AllThingsD with Asus's Jonney Shih and Google's Andy Rubin, Asus only had four months to build the Nexus 7. To make it more interesting, Google wanted the $199 price-point.

Apparently Google thought that Motorola was not up to the task. Andy Rubin praised Asus in the interview. So Motorola can only build higher priced tablets, but not compete on the cut-throat low-end? Low-end is actually the wrong term here. The Nexus 7 is not low-end. It is cheap, but up to date. Amazon has a problem right now with the Kindle Fire. It looks outdated compared to the Nexus 7. 

Amazon is supposed to release a new Kindle Fire 2 in July. The game is on.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
