A Google Nexus Tablet?

194036-google-tablet_originalThis is an interesting rumour, in which Google’s own Eric Schmidt let slip the possibility of a Google branded Nexus-style tablet. According to this latest rumour, Google really is working on some form of a Nexus-Style Google branded tablet, and it may be coming to market as early as the end of Q1 2012. The tablet will be a 7-inch product and is actually designed to offer up an alternative to the Amazon Kindle Fire instead of compete directly with Apple’s iPad series. The rumour-mill further suggests that the pricing will be competitive with Amazon’s product as well, and should retail for around $199.99 in American Dollars, from America.

Right now, this Intel is highly speculative, and in fact, Google Taiwan already released a statement indirectly refuting it. They indicated that Google Taiwan has "never heard about plans of launching an own-brand tablet PC". Of course, this isn’t an outright denial, but we should still take this "news" with extra seasoning. If Google does go this route, they will likely be selling the device at an even greater loss than Amazon, since they would probably make the specs more competitive. It’ll be interesting to see how this pans out.

If you are a driver then you will be aware that there is nothing more frustrating than getting stuck in a traffic jam. INRIX Traffic is a GPS based mobile application which will allow you to check current traffic conditions as well as forecast ones for later in the day. You can even report incidents from the app!

So, I thought I would show you briefly on video what the app looks like. In the video below you will see the INRIX app running on BlackBerry, iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

The application is free on all the above platforms so why not give it a try. You can either search your own app store or find links here.
