Is the Google Nexus 9 in this box? (It is!) HTC's Jeff Gordon says something amazing and highly confidential is inside
Google's quite anticipated Nexus 9 tablet is reportedly being unveiled on October 15, however, Mountain View has been extremely mum on whether it's holding a press event tomorrow. Well, it seems that the manufacturer behind the upcoming Nexus slate – HTC – is having a rather hard time keeping the beans in one place. The Senior Global Online Communications Manager of HTC, Jeff Gordon, tweeted an image of a sealed-tight cardboard box and claimed that “something amazing, beautiful and highly confidential just arrived.”

Then again, we can't say for sure if a Nexus 9 or two can be found in Jeff Gordon's plain cardboard box, but provided that HTC already announced a slew of new devices a few days ago and purportedly has nothing else in the pipeline besides the Nexus 9, we can assume that both HTC and Google are gearing up towards the official announcement of the slate. 

The rumor mill has it that the Nexus 9 will be powered by the 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC, which comprises a dual-core Denver processor and a 192-core Kepler GPU, a super high-res 9” Quad HD display at the front, and most probably 3GB of RAM. Google might ask for $399 for the tablet – a higher price than previous Nexus slates, but then again, we might be dealing with a potential powerhouse of a tablet here. It can't arrive any sooner.


Update: Well, it turned out that we got it right and the Google Nexus 9 was indeed the highly-confidential device inside Jeff Gordon's cardboard box.
