Google will launch its first own-brand media tablet in collaboration with ASUS later this month, a recent report claims. Google has long been reported to be working on its own tablet that will follow a model similar to its Nexus-brand smartphones. The company is said to have partnered with ASUS to manufacture the device, which earlier reports said will begin shipping this month. While rumors suggested the tablet would be delayed until July, a new report from Android Authority cited an anonymous source at ASUS in claiming that the Nexus 7 quad-core tablet will launch in June. The Nexus slate will reportedly run Jelly Bean, Google’s next major Android release, and it may be unveiled later this month during the company’s annual Google I/O conference.
