Google’s Nexus 8 tablet rumored to launch in Q3

It wasn’t easy for ASUS (2357) to hit that $199 price point with the Google Nexus 7 tablet, but it looks like it’s paying off. Reports of strong demand for Google’s (GOOG) debut tablet were reaffirmed shortly after the Nexus 7 launched, as Google quickly sold out of its entry-level model.

Google previously stated that it hoped to sell 3 million Nexus 7 tablets in 2012.
