Google to launch inexpensive tablet

In the effort to confront Amazon head on, Google is launching an inexpensive tablet to be made by Asus. The tablet will be 7 inches and retail for 199$ in the US but crucially just 159 pounds in the UK as it is keen not to fleece consumers in the UK.

The pricing is going to make this one of the best tablets on price and will likely get a huge uptake in the market as its half the price of the Apple ipad.
