After the Asus Nexus 7 tablet, Google has moved towards HTC. Yes, Nexus 9 is being manufactured by HTC. HTC and Google have had some promising collaborations before, and we’re hoping them to make another hit. HTC is not a very active manufacturer of tablets, the last time they made a tablet was in 2011. Samsung and Apple were already dominating the market, when Asus, Lenovo and Acer began manufacturing tablets, I think that’s the point where HTC gave up on manufacturing tablets. But now things have changed and Nexus is in collaboration with HTC, which means that HTC is going to come back with a bang. Why am I so sure?? Its because of Nexus 7, that now Asus controls 4.6% of tablet market.
Nexus 9 will be having a monster 8.9 inches of HD display. The screen resolution would be of 2048×1440 pixels, which make the pixel density of 281ppi. As everybody knows that tablets do not feature a very good camera, Nexus 9 will feature a 8 MP back and 3 MP front facing camera. Integrated with a 2.2 GHz Quad-Core Cortex-A15 and a 2GB RAM. The internal memory of the tablet is supposed to be of 16/32 GB and no slot for Micro SD is confirmed. Headline is that this device may come with a nVidea Logan Tegra K1, a 64-bit processing chipset. The device is said to come with Android KitKat 4.4.4 and Lollipop update is definitely on the cards. The tablet will be weighing about 418 grams and will be 7.87mm thin. The shape and body of the Nexus 9 looks more like an iPad.
Nexus devices has always been in range for everybody, same goes for this device! 16 GB version is rumoured to come out for $399 and 32 GB version for $499. The device is set to hit the markets with Nexus X somewhere in November.
