There has been a lot of talk about a $99 Google Nexus tablet, it would be from ASUS and roughly have the same specs as the current Google Nexus 7 and would be released at the same time as a new Nexus 7 from Google that would be thinner and lighter. That’s how the rumor has been running so far anyways.
Digitimes has released some new information that actually put the $99 tablet being released this year. The tablet would come with an ARM processor and only sport one core, they claim it is will be running a VIA Wonder Media WM8950 processor. It is a single core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, which is clocked at 800 MHz and an ARM Mali-400 graphics has part. The chip is included to be able to play back 1080p video hardware accelerated.
Take this with a grain of salt, Digitimes doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to spreading reliable rumors.
