It is also reported that Google will stop making the 7-inch Nexus tablet, probably due to increased competition in the segment.  Also, the line between large smartphones and tablets is getting too blurred and a 7-inch display is not much bigger than a 6-inch one.

In the 8-inch tablet segment, Google’s Nexus would potentially compete with the Galaxy Note 8.0, LG G Pad 8.3 and also the reigning iOS 7 based iPad mini.

As per company’s senior vice-president Sundar Pichai, the annual conference of developers is now scheduled to be held at San Francisco from June 25 to 26, 2014. The company is expected to launch this tablet coupled with Android 4.5 on the sidelines of this event, as per sources.
