A 'high-end' Google Nexus tablet made by HTC is coming in Q3, claims Taiwan media
Taiwanese media is abuzz with speculation that HTC has won the bid for a Google Nexus tablet coming in Q3. Nexus One was made by HTC, and given the increasing rumors that Google might nix the line, it could be giving HTC a shot at the wind-down editions, too.

The supposedly "high-end" tablet by HTC was neither confirmed nor denied by the company, which sent out the usual boilerplate reply that it doesn't comment on market rumors. HTC didn't have much succees with its Flyer and Jetstream tablet efforts back in the day, which had a fine design, but essentially priced themselves out of the market.

Google let 2013 pass without releasing any flagship 10-incher, and if the rumor pans out, it might mean that Android will meet 2014 with a renewed focus on tablets, which is arguably the weak point of the mobile OS at the moment.

First Nexus is made by HTC , Google might give the opportunity for them to finish the "nexus" lineup as well

I hope this is not true. HTC made good tablets but way over priced. I mean come on 700 bucks the jetstream? 500 for the flyer? they were high or something.

It will be affordable in US. Google normally release their hardware near cost.

Other regions will not enjoy such benefit as usual.

I doubt many will agree, but I would love for Samsung to release a 12" Nexus tablet building off of the specifications of the GT/GN Pro series along with a qHD AMOLED panel

I would get this in a hearbeat. HTC has the best hardware and I have been wanting to get my first tablet, but wanted it to be an HTC, so this will fit the bill. Hurry up and make it!

Lol god I hope not. Asus took two full generations to make the nexus 7 with decent quality control, still not good but at least decent build. If another Taiwanese company with even worse build quality reputation does it then we are all screwed. The only thing HTC would bring to the table is gap full design, poorly cut USB ports, poor button placement, etc....

The Nexus line already cuts enough corners, they don't need suck T C cutting even more manufacturing corners.

stop trolling you always troll HTC

Not trolling. The only products I ever have to return or exchange after unboxing them are Nexus products and HTC products. Asus products tend to last until the exchange period is over before their flaws show up. So if you combine HTC and nexus, good luck.

My guess is 10 RMA calls to google before suck t c gets you one you can live with.

I honestly think it is a Taiwanese company thing. They have shit factories or something. Although acer seems pretty good now.
