The blinking Google logo seems more indicative of a hardware problem . A "normal" bootloop generally refers to the ROMs boot animation looping, which occurs after the Google logo. A normal bootloop can usually be fixed by reflashing a ROM, but if it's hardware related that's a whole different problem (one that I wouldn't want to mess with unless someone gives me the device for scrap).
I can't say definitively, but that's just my two cents from looking at it.
