The Nexus 8 is quickly becoming the definitive ‘Bigfoot’ of the Android world; rumours of its existence have run rife since the above picture was spotted on Google‘s own website, however in classic Google style, the tech company has revealed absolutely nothing about its plans or even hinted at where it’s going with its tablet line. Today, we get yet another rumour that is saying that the Nexus 8 launch will be happening at the end of April, and will be manufactured in conjunction with ASUS, as the previous Nexus 7 models have been.
This is the second such rumour we have heard that has pinpointed the partnership of Google and ASUS to continue through the manufacturing of the elusive Nexus 8 (both times were reported by DigiTimes). The tip this time apparently comes from a source involved in Taiwan-based supply chains, but again cites to the poor performance of the 2013 Nexus 7 as the cause of the move to the 8-inch form factor. As with all rumours, though, it’s best to take any rumour news with a grain of salt.
If I’m honest, I’m not sure which device I’m less convinced exists, the Nexus 8 or the Nexus 10. Both have had multiple rumour trails yet both of them, as with all rumours Google-related, have amounted to nothing. But that might just be me getting weary: what do you think about this rumour? Do you think that Google and ASUS are teaming up to bring us a Nexus 8 this April? Let us know your opinion.
