Finally HTC is getting out there and presenting another tablet to the world the Nexus 9, in corporation with Google. This Taiwanese manufacturer was put in charge of producing Google next nexus device. After a disappointing Nexus 10 that was made by other manufacturer, supposedly to be a direct competitor with apple iPad, didn’t reach its goals, Google turn their attention to HTC to see if they can produce something magical that will make users buy an android tablet.
We can’t say anything wrong about HTC, they been delivering great devices for the last few years, the HTC One as an example, giving them a boost in mobile market and stepping forward as a top mobile manufacturer, and now joining forces with google will only make them even better.
HTC Nexus 9 Quick Preview
Now the HTC Nexus 9 or Volantis as some sources had been referring it, is expected to have a full aluminium body with front facing speakers which is no surprise coming front HTC, and 8.9 inches, 2048 *1140, 281 PPI screen, and a 8 Mega pixel OIS (optical stabilization) Rear camera and a 3 Mega Pixels front camera.
The Nexus 9 will be powered by NVidia Tegra K1 64-bit processor with 2GB of RAM with options of 16GB or 32Gb of internal memory, not known yet if supports micro-SD, the Wi-Fi version is expected to weight 418g and 3G 427g(14.74oz).
As being a Google device is expected that the Nexus will run the new Android L OS but this is not complete assured yet, but is normal to Google introduce a new version of android on its own devices first, so the timing is right.
It has been rumoured that the HTC Nexus 9 will cost more or less £245 for the 16GB version and £305 for the 32GB one, making it the same price tag as iPad Mini or the Nexus 10 and cheaper than Xperia Z2 or IPad Air.
The HTC Nexus 9 is expected to be launched sometime in October some sources suggested that 16th of October is the date, but not yet confirmed, and HTC is holding an event on the 8th of the same month in New York, but nothing indicates that they will be presenting the Nexus 9, more likely they are present a new version of the HTC One code-named HTC Eye.
So will the new Nexus 9 being produced by HTC meet all expectations, will this new android tablet make face to the iPad, we will soon find out….
