With the general trend of setting the Android standard with high-end 'nexus' smartphones, then chances are they may do the same with a 'nexus' tablet; but they can't ignore the Quickfire success around the likes of the Kindle Fire (no pun intended)...Quite a dilemma for them. Pretty excited to see what Google do with this.

I hope they test it out on the masses, I would love to be a Google test dummy. “a tablet of the highest quality” sounds great especially coming from google... good thing I didn't get a galaxy tab for xmas I would be so mad right now

Don't talk of such a dream! Makes life seem so monotonous.

The hardware isn't what's wrong with Android tablets at the moment, it's the vast difference in ecosystems and the OS itself. Hopefully this is improved with ICS unifying the mobile & tablet; but does Schmidt mean a new Google 'nexus tab' that will bring in a new Android dessert variant?
