New Delhi: Those waiting for a refresh of the Nexus line of tablets could be in for some great news in the coming week. Analysts expect Asus to launch a refreshed Nexus 7 tablet at the Computex trade fair which will be held from June 4 to 8, 2013 in Taipei.

Apart from the refreshed Nexus, Taiwanese computer makers Acer and Asus are expected to showcase new low-end tablets running on Android. According to Chitra Gopal, an analyst with CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, these low-end tablets possibly targeted at emerging markets, could be priced between $100 and $150 (approx between Rs 5500 and Rs 8500). The analyst also noted that the new tablets could be running on MediaTek chipsets.

Earlier in May, Acer had previewed some of the new products that would be officially launched at Computex. These included a convertible laptop Aspire R7, a detachable notebook Aspire P3 and an 8-inch Android tablet Iconia A1. Buyers can also expect the Acer W3, that cropped up on an Amazon listing page in May, to get an official launch during Computex.
