The tips involved included one that seemed to reveal that OnePlus was working on a tablet to go alongside its OnePlus One handset. A heading on the top of the OnePlus website said OnePlus Tab. But OnePlus sent a message to evleaks, informing him that the picture he received was photoshopped, and that the company has no plans to produce a slate.
The second fake tablet was the HTC Volantis, which was rumored to be the next Nexus device offered by Google. This was supposedly a high-end slate powered by a 64-bit NVIDIA K1 chip, featuring an 8.9 inch screen with resolution of 2560 x 1600. That tip was accompanied by an image of the slate, which as it turned out, was provided by a 14-year old boy pretending to be a Google employee. Too bad.
This is why we remind you to take certain stories with a grain of salt, because you never know when someone's intentions are not honorable.

I'm disappointed that those HTC Volantis specs weren't real...

You're disappointed? Seriously? I'm sorry, but anyone who thought a 5GB RAM Android tablet might actually be a reality when a 4GB RAM Android device has yet to exist probably just doesn't know much about tech. 4GB of RAM will be a huge milestone for Android. Once a device with that much RAM debuts, I don't see an increase happening very soon after that.

The fact that it's possible doesn't mean it would happen. I'm sure you'd believe it if they had said 13GB of RAM as well, right? If that's the case, I have some prime real estate up in the Yukon Territories I'd like to sell ya, hey...
