HTC stops making the Nexus 9; will Nexus tablets ever return?42
Even with Google stopping its own Nexus 9 sales, HTC continued to make the tablet available – and still does to this day.
But what HTC has now confirmed is that production for the Nexus 9 has come to its inevitable end. While the manufacturer will continue to sell what stock it has available, once those models are gone, your chances for buying a factory-new Nexus 9 go up in smoke.
We know: there are plenty of much modern tablets out there these days – Google's own Pixel C included. But for Android fans who kept a special place in their heart for Nexus devices, this conclusion (at least for now) of the Nexus tablet story is still a melancholy chapter in the saga of Google's relationship with mobile hardware.
