HTC's Nexus 9 tablet might be unveiled October 8th, bearing a Tegra K1 processor

confirmed the specs we've been hearing about for a while. The tablet will apparently sport a blazing fast Tegra K1 processor, which literally mauls the competition in all benchmarks, but unlike the previous rumors, the tipster here points out that the Nexus 9 will come equipped with 3 GB of RAM. The slate was pegged before to be the real 64-bit Android L poster child, being the first device with 4 GB of RAM, but these plans might have been scraped for now, or there could be versions of the Nexus 9. The rest of the specs are purported to be a 9" 1080p display, 16 GB of storage, and a microSD slot for expansion with up to 128 GB more, if needed.Enough with the rugged shooter shenanigans, though, as we don't intend to do cave-diving any time soon, but we do intend to put our grubby mitts on the Nexus 9 beauty, as, besides the premium design, as would be customary for HTC, the source also
In fact, the source corroborates their knowledge with the NVIDIA filing below that we already told you about, where the Nexus 9 is mentioned as running Tegra K1, which is the most tangible proof so far that the HTC-made Nexus slate exists, so we can't wait for Google's invitations to start flying out for the October 8th event.
- Display 8.9" 1536 x 2048 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.6 MP front
- Processor NVIDIA Tegra K1, Dual-core, 2300 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 6700 mAh

1080p seems a little low. QHD would be better...

I don't see why they would use a lower resolution than on the Nexus 7, which has a 1200p display. It's probably 1600p.

1080p is probably referencing 1200p. Google hasn't made any tablets with a 16:9 aspect ratio and they have no reason to now. They make them 16:10 to make up for the space the software buttons take up.

K1 is Jack Power Sucker.... The killer frying pan of batteries. Who cares that it's faster if it requires more power to do so ?

If it used iPhone or iPad level batteries it would be horrible yes. Its Android though. It'll have a big fat 12000 mah battery if need be. Actually if they used Samsung again like they should have it would be bleeding edge like the Nexus 10 was. Not sure about HTC. They might screw it up and put a 3000 mah or something just so they can fit a useless tri camera or a subwoofer or something.

Honestly why do you even care? You'll never buy anything other than Apple made. Stop bashing .everything has its pros and cons. And we need NVIDIA. As a tech lover I don't want them to abandon their business at all. U might love a world with only Apple

I love apple and I've used iphones and I believe they do provide good experience and performance for a smartphone but they are not the best I've used. And I'm really disappointed by the new iPhones. Some key improvements that I've 100% expected were absent like an increase in ram and Megapixels. Now I know u'll like to argue they perform like a flagship with a GB of ram. For future proofing a device 1GB ram(especially on 2014) is not enough. Well,its true up to a limit with a big sacrifice on multi tasking. I've personality experienced some by myself on iPhone 4s and 5. And next big disappoint for me is that they haven't utilised the extra space especially on 6 plus. Yes i meant galaxy note like features. I don't want more rows icon every year. I want pen like features and multi windows modes etc.

Is there a reason, why you would suggest one of the pillars of GPU market, to ditch fastest growing segment that is mobile hardware? Since you didnt suppy any adequate arguements, this is just plain stupid to the level, that your foot size is geting over your IQ.

Wow congrats you will be considered for Nvidia New Marketing Head ! Don't ashame your self. Nvidia is a powerhouse and its chips will lead to development of new powerhouse which results in better computing in mobile device. If you don't want go and stick with Nokia 1100 or buy a hello ki
