Google is reportedly planning a 10-inch version of its Nexus 7 tablet, according to a report from Digitimes. The tablet’s display panels will be supplied by Wintek and AU Optronics; Google previously ordered 500,000 touch panels from Wintek for its Nexus 7 tablet in June, the report claims. Google’s Andy Rubin revealed earlier this year that the Mountain View-based company was doubling down on the tablet market in 2012. Google is betting big on its 7-inch slate and based on its performance, could quite possibly release a larger model to compete with Apple’s iPad. The Nexus 7 will be available in mid-July for $199.
