We already suspected as much -- not least from the FCC filing above -- but an unnamed executive at Asustek Computer Inc has reportedly just confirmed that Google's much-rumored new tablet will be co-branded with ASUS. According to Reuters, the employee said the tablet will help Google to "target Amazon" and the Kindle range of tablets and e-readers. Despite the existence of Google Play Books, which are available on any Android tablet, the insider said that Google "doesn't have anything like Amazon's service" -- a quote which may not make a ton of sense, but which does support the general notion of a $199 rival to the Kindle Fire.
