    Default Nexus 8.9 Tablet by HTC?

    Google Nexus 8.9 made by HTC is tipped for June - a 'high-performance' tablet with 2K+ display, and a $300+ price

    First off, the Google Nexus 8.9 is likely to be a "high-performance" device, with "volume production expected to start in July or August." She also adds that "this will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications," and "would not be surprised if it is higher than $299." Another juicy tidbit is that Alexander thinks HTC will be the manufacturer of Google's larger tablet, which we've heard before.

    This would be awesome... As long as the performance is premium and the price is not much over 300, I could very likely get get one. The old tf300 is starting to show its age.

    Good for HTC but I will be holding on to OG N7 until battery no longer holds a decent charge.

    I'm hoping HTC does make the Nexus 8.9... An aluminum design would be great on an 8.9 inch tablet IMO, plus it would be a Nexus!

    Well, is the Nexus tablet supposed to be a high-end device? Unless it is it probably won't have a metal exterior. My guess is that the plastics that are used for the exterior chassis are lower cost than using HTC One-grade aluminum or some other nice metal would be.

    I read that it is going to be high end... And expensive to match . I also read that it will be made in relatively small quantities for a Nexus. I hope it's aluminum but if it's plastic that's not a deal breaker for me. Love my n7 2013!
