The tablet you see here may very well be the highly anticipated Nexus tablet. For a long time now, word has been spreading that Google is planning to release a tablet that bears the Nexus branding. Asus is expected to be the manufacturer, and an announcement will most likely come at Google I/O this week.
Well it looks like the Google Nexus Tablet is going to be hitting store shelves a bit sooner than anyone expected it to according to a new report from Digitimes. In this report, the 7" Nexus Tablet for Asus has already begun shipping out, at least to San Francisco where it is now going to be officially unveiled during Google I/O 2012.
The larger brother of the Galaxy Note from Samsung has apparently quietly slipped onto Amazon for pre-orders already. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 quad-core tablet will roll on out when it is release with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and is apparently going to be available as soon as 3-5 weeks.

Earlier this week, Asus put out a teaser video that basically told us to expect the next line of Transformer products at Computex 2012. The video also told us to prepare ourselves for May 31.

The last time we wrote about Ematic, the company was selling its eGlide Prism tablet for just under $160 on ShopNBC.

Asus makes some of the best Android tablets around. In addition to their quality, the Transformer tablets also carry pretty decent price tags.

It's there that Asus will debut a new addition or additions to the Transformer family.
GameStop has expanded into the mobile market even further by announcing the availability of Android tablets in more than 1,600 of its stores across the United States.
