Google Inc (GOOG): The Nexus of Another $200 Tablet?

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is continuing to find ways to innovate while producing devices that lowball just about anyone on the market. While Google is making tons of headway with its Android operating system in a full line for smartphones, it has only recently started to make inroads in the tablet space against the Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad. Google came out with the Nexus 7 tablet, and Apple soon followed suit with the iPad Mini to directly compete. Google came out with a Nexus 10 table to directly compete with the iPad.

The price war raged, but it seemed that Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) was holding its own despite having a more premium-priced device in both categories. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is now making up some ground on Apple in the market while the tablet market explodes to levels that do not indicate a supernova implosion like some other CEOs have suggested lately.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)Yes, we’re talking to you, Thorsten Heins of Research in Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY). However, in the efforts to Google to make its Nexus 7 tablet a competitor with the iPad Mini, it seemed to have fallen short of expectations considering its sub-$200 price tag  doesn’t lead the market against the $330 iPad Mini.

What : o do? Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is forging on, apparently, with reports that the company is planning to unveil a new, upgraded Nexus 7 tablet at the company’s I/O developer conference next week. Word is that the company is still shooting for a sub-$200 retail price while upgrading some aspects of the device. Google was reportedly losing at least $5  per device with the old Nexus 7.
