Report: HTC to produce the Nexus 10 for Google

Report: HTC to produce the Nexus 10 for Google
A published report out of Taipei on Monday, says that HTC will be reuniting with Google to produce a Nexus device. This time, the device being manufactured as a result of this collaboration will be a tablet. More specifically, the Taiwan based company will be responsible for a new Nexus 10. HTC would be replacing Samsung. The Korean tech titan has been behind the 10 inch Android slab since the day it was first launched. HTC was the company behind the very first Nexus device, the Nexus One handset, which was released in early 2010.

HTC doesn't have a very successful history with tablets. It's 7 inch HTC Flyer and 10 inch HTC Jetstream, launched in early and late 2011 respectively, both failed to catch on with buyers despite the HTC Scribe technology, which used a stylus as a pen and was ahead of its time. HTC sold the pen separately for $79.99, a move which didn't exactly promote sales of its tablets.

Speculation is that Google turned to Asus to produce the Nexus 7 after being turned down by HTC. After seeing how successful that slate turned out, HTC has purportedly been given a second chance with the Nexus 10, and based on the rumor, won't make the same mistake twice. Of course, until we hear from HTC that it is going to make a refreshed Nexus 10, you should take this information with a grain of salt.

Really... All you can do is fall back on an insult to make yourself feel better; how pathetic. Everyone is entitled to an opinion imo Apple products are lame I bet you are one of the turds that troll around this website saying otherwise, its time to get a life dude.

I don't see what's the biggest mistake here, just because he wants to sell his iPad for an awesome Nexus tablet from Google and HTC? Yes, iPad is the best tablet, this is the fact. But there's one more fact, Nexus is the best Android tablet.

Personally I think Windows 8.1 hybrids are better than Android tablets/iPads. However 8.1 hybrids aren't for everyone, their quite less portable and they cost more.

It'd be nice if we could install both Android and Win 8.1 on these things. Still, I wouldn't mind an Android tablet.

I can emulate Android on Windows, but its not quite as fast or smooth as properly booting Android. Even with my i5-4570, it still feel noticeably slower than my Nexus 5. I tried to install Android x86, but ran into many issues. I hope some more OEM make Windows/Android dual-booting hybrids. ASUS have the Duo, but I seen quite bad reviews.

You answered your own question. "Ipad is the best tablet, this is the fact"

Definitely not the best price. Not to mention some users don't like the restrictive os.

And clearly what's best for you is best fit everyone. Not arrogant at all.

I wonder who will make the Nexus 10 next month, so far we've had Asus, LG, and Samsung.

I wonder if this companies make money making tablets for Google it self. I would love to see a Htc in the tablet market.
