HTC tablet gets Wi-Fi certification; is this the next Nexus slate?
At various times this year, we told you about a tablet that is rumored to be under production by HTC. Various code names have been bandied about for this tablet, including Flounder, and Volantis. But the most important name that this slate could be called, is the Nexus 9. What is interesting, is that the tablet has received its Wi-Fi certification, and according to the certificate, the operating system on the slab will be Android L. In addition, the certificate shows that the filing was made in the "Tablet (Wi-Fi and other)" section as opposed to the "Wi-Fi Only" section. That would seem to indicate that HTC will be offering both a Wi-Fi only model, and a model with LTE connectivity.

The HTC tablet rumored to be the Nexus 9, is believed to have an 8.9 inch screen with resolution of 2048 x 1440. The pixel density at that combination works out to be 281ppi. A 64-bit Tegra K1 CPU is under the hood, with 2GB of RAM inside. Buyers will have the option of purchasing the model with either 16GB or 32GB of native storage, with pricing at $399 and $499, respectively. This would explain the pair of SKU numbers listed on the certificate.

Other features include the BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers, and the tablet is expected to have zero gap aluminum construction. While there is no date listed for the device's release, each bit of paperwork that gets done, brings us one step closer to the launch of the slate.
