The popular tablet has a base model that costs $199, well below the hot-selling iPad Mini at $329 and on par with offerings from Amazon.
However, Google is aiming to price below $150, with a $99 tablet being the ultimate goal.
The cheaper Nexus 7 will be ready for launch in the Q2 2013, using component maker O-Film's touch-screen glass-glass film technology for a thinner and cheaper tablet.
Cnet speculates the first device will cost $129-149.
