    Asus in Fifth Place in Tablet Market; Plus Google Nexus Tablet, Jelly Bean & more!


    In a recent PC World article we found a variety of intel ranging from Asus' future products, Android 5.0, the Google Nexus tablet name and more!

    • First, according to the latest research numbers from IDC, Asus is now ranked fifth in tablet shipments world-wide. Here's the quote, "Asus ranked fifth in tablet shipments in both the U.S. and world in 2011 with a 2.3% share of the U.S. tablet market and a 2.5% share of the worldwide market." The article also suggested that Asus is rapidly moving up that list, and will rank higher this year. Kudos to Asus for coming a long way!
    • Next, Asus is likely to be the first partner with Google for a Google tablet. Furthermore, the tablet will likely not be named the Google Nexus tablet as previous rumors suggested. Instead, the Asus made tablet will probably be called, The Google Play. This is obviously Google's way of creating a marketing theme to go with their new name switch for the Android Market. Further info seems to confirm previous rumors that this new Google Play Tablet will come with a Tegra 3 quad-core chip, Ice Cream Sandwich and will be priced at $200 dollars to compete with the Kindle Fire.
    • There's still more interesting Asus news. Apparently, Asus has an even deeper partnership with Google beyond just the Google Play tablet. Supposedly, they are working directly with Google on the next iteration of Android 5.0, which will likely be known as Jelly Bean. Also, this report suggests that Jelly Bean will be ready for release in the Fall of this year.

    Wow! How's that for some heavy news today? Yes, some of this was info we already had hints about, but it's still pretty exciting to see how things are evolving. It's sometimes great fun gleaning juicy details from the deep places of the internet!

    I wonder how much of this will actually come true? Share your ideas.

    OMFG a $200 quad-core Google tablet with no bloatware! The more I read about upcoming tech the more I feel like I got raped by Asus, $500+ for a device plagued with issues... Sigh... I saved and saved so long and hard for this device it should be the absolute best tablet forever!

    Interesting... I was aware of most of these rumors thoug, last I heard Google decided to scale the chip down to the Tegra2 in order to keep prices in the 150 - 200 dollar range.

    Rumors are out there now that Samsung will be the manufacturer for the new Google Nexus tablet. Slashgear has a blurb on it.

    If Google and Asus are working together on Android 5.0, than this could mean that it will not have as much problems as ICS does.

    If they are ranked in 5th place, I wonder what the other devices ranked 2-4 where?

    Samsung has to be 2nd but not idea who could be 3 or 4. Maybe Amazon. *shrugs*
