Report: HTC to produce the Nexus 10 for Google

Report: HTC to produce the revised 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.
