nexus8As if Google didn’t already have a nice grasp on the tablet market with the new Nexus 7 model for this year, it looks like the company might be getting closer to releasing an 8-inch model of the popular device.  Google released the newest model of the Nexus 7 about 6 months ago and it looks like by the middle of this year we could see the rumored 8-inch model show up at the Google Play Store.  The Nexus rumors that hit the web recently might have had to do something with the Nexus 10 being replaced by a new model finally.

Other than that, other rumors have surfaced that suggest that Google is looking to get into the 8-inch tablet market with a new Nexus model.  According to one online source, the supply chain that is taking care of the device, claims that Google is ready to shift into an 8-inch Nexus tablet and although the device does not provide any specific dates for the release, it could be based on the historical release dates of other devices.  In the past, Google has been releasing new tablets to the market by the end of summer most years.

With that being said, it is easy to assume that Google will be doing the same with this new tablet if it is the real deal.  The tablet is likely to be made by ASUS, which has been the go to company for other Google tablets and the processor could be one from Intel or Qualcomm according to rumors that are picking up steam as we move to close on one month into the 2014 year.  Google has historically replaced an older model tablet with a new, more powerful option, as well as a new version of the Android operating system.

Towards the end of last year, the 8-inch Nexus model was reportedly going to be released, but instead LG released the G Pad 8.3-inch Google Edition.  Since then, the rumors have been picking up about the new 8-inch model of the Nexus tablet.  Having to compete with the iPad Mini from Apple and other smaller tablets from Samsung and Sony on the market, Google is going to have to make it well worth it for those looking for a tablet in order to skip passed the 7-inch model for the 8-inch version.
