NVIDIA legal filing confirms HTC Nexus 9, might be released this month
posted by Michael H. / Sep 10, 2014, 7:58 PM
The relevant section actually reads more like a marketing statement about the Tegra K1 SoC than a legal filing, mentioning how the chip is "so powerful it is being used in products other than smartphones and tablets" like Chromebooks, TVs, and an upcoming Project Tango tablet used "to track and map 3D environments". But, at the end of the section, NVIDIA also mentions the "HTC Nexus 9, expected in the third quarter of 2014".
The thing is that September is the last month of Q3, which seems to imply that the new Nexus tablet will be released this month. From what we've heard, it will feature an 8.9-inch display with a 2560x1600 resolution, and of course the Tegra K1 64-bit processor. Who is in the market for a new tablet?
NOW THIS is what i called A TABLET

This is a foolish decision either by HTC or Google. They never should have gone with nvidia after what nvidia did with tegra 2 and tegra 3. They stopped releasing updated drivers which caused all those tegra 2 and tegra 3 devices to get stagnated on age old software.

Been waiting for this forever. This tablet could be the bomb. But the delays are making me shy away from it. The Nvidia Shield Tablet is here and now and it also has the Tegra K1, although 32-bit, it's just the perfect size at 8-inches. So I guess Nvidia gets my money.

Was looking forward to a K1 product release but will save my money for other things. I don't buy patent troll products.

I am waiting for a Nexus 10 replacement myself but I honestly don't trust HTC or this. The main hang up I have is finding something with a better display at the same size. 9 might be too small because my iPad Air looks a lot smaller when playing games compared to my Nexus 10 and that is 9.7 inches.

If no 4:3 aspect ratio, I'm buying iPad Air 2. Why is it hard to make a tablet with proper aspect ratio.
