Additionally, there will be a $199 model of the device, matching the price of the current 8GB Nexus 7.
If accurate, the release date matches the expected date of the so-called iPad Mini, which could possibly be announced in October for release in early November. The iPad Mini is said to feature a 7.85-inch display, an A6 processor, no Retina Display and no LTE support.
More importantly, the device is expected to cost between $250 and $300, about half the price of a new iPad third generation but only $100 cheaper than an iPad 2.
If Google somehow figures out how to sell a Nexus 7 variant for $99, it would break a whole new barrier to consumer entry and certainly put the heat on rivals, including Apple.
