However, sales performance for the second-generation Nexus 7 have been short of expectations mainly due to intense price competition in the 7-inch segment, with cumulative sales of fewer than three million units as of the end of 2013, the sources noted.
Therefore, Google has selected 8-inch as the size of the third-generation Nexus 7 to avoid price competition and competition from 5- to 6-inch smartphones, the sources indicated. Google is very likely to continue co-brand cooperation with Asustek for the 8-inch tablet, the sources added.
