Google Nexus 8.9 made by HTC is tipped for June - a 'high-performance' tablet with 2K+ display, and a $300+ price
Nexus 8.9 will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications

it would be more eipc if it was an 8.9 inch version of the tablet Z2

That would be epic as Sony arguably makes the best Android tablet right now when it comes to premium design. HTC hasn't made a table for a few years but they put definitely put a lot of effort into premium design, so HTC is one of my top choices along with Sony.

You are correct, I had to re-read headline an let that sink in.
I'm thinking that picture with sense on it made me think otherwise.
Looks like a hacked OneX.

Even the title of the article said "Google nexus" did you really just look at the pictures and comment?
21. AfterShock (Posts: 2810; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
Didn't you just vread my reply then just ignore it?
Kind of the same thing.

Awesome. Been waiting to get my first tablet and wanted to wait until google let HTC take it over. Bring it on HTC.

lucky htc seems to have become the recipient of google's assistance this time. when google chose lg to do the nexus, lg's sales significantly improved. hope it does the same for htc.

I normally buy most Nexus products but I think it ends here. This tablet is going to horrible and is going to have a ton of issues. If you thought Asus was bad with the Nexus 7, you haven't seen anything yet. HTC is on a whole other level.

Thought ASUS did a great job..my nexus 7 is going strong since sept of '12
25. Taters (Posts: 3079; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I went through 3 and they all had screen lift and light bleed and a s**tty Tegra3. The Nexus 7 2013,I got a good unit on my second unit but that is more because of Google than Asus and the specs and price were too good to pass up.
This is going to be a joke. HTC corner cutting on quality control + Nexus corner cutting for a lower price will spell an absolute disaster. I know the article says they won't be cutting corners for price but it sounds bs. The Nexus line is about price and performance now.

I'd say moto is the best. A nexus htc device might be good seeing how they were in the old days of the first android phones.
Problem is, HTC can be hit or miss with quality. Though asus hasn't really been any better either.

Assuming 16:9, 3200x1800 is above 2560x1600, and on a 8.9 inch screen that's 412 PPI!!!!!!!! That screen would be so incredible, and BoomSound!! I cannot wait for something like this!!!!
32. jove39 (Posts: 1286; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
ANd to pump that many pixels...gpu will be always sweating!
37. Chris_Bakke (Posts: 203; Member since: 23 Jan 2013)
Not with the new 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 working its 192 core GPU

This article could have had credibility if DigiTimes hadn't been quoted has a source. All this article does is confirm speculation and has absolutely no tangible proof of anything. Nothing to see here, folks. Carry on. Nothing but click bait.

Nice but I'll never see it here in Brazil.

30. fsahin (Posts: 46; Member since: 17 Mar 2012)
I don't believe it, 8.9screen has no sense.You can't hold it on one hand.
33. Totse2k15 (Posts: 266; Member since: 11 Feb 2014)
Thank god it's not made by Asus. I like HTC design, and BoomSound front speakers would be epic awesome! 8.9" is a little big, imo. 8.3/8.4 is the sweet spot.
Please don't priced it over $350/$399, lol.

I would love an 8 - 9 Iinches Samsung Nexus tablet with a QHD AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM & a SD805 - I would happily pay $350 - $450 for something of the like.

and finally i can buy a tablet now
i wait for htc tablet to buy a tablet

I was hoping for the tried and tested ASUS to be the OEM for the next tablet. If it's going to be HTC then we may expect the Nexus 8(.9) having an aluminum body to match Apple's iPad Mini 2 and also to complement the "premium" price tag.
