We’re looking forward to a ton of hardware launches about to get underway, not just at IFA itself in early September, but also at other events taking place in the same general timeframe: Motorola’s Chicago event, or maybe even that rumored Apple event a few days later. But then there are also new devices we’re expecting that aren’t yet attached to any particular launch event – stuff like the new Nexus phone and tablet. Heck, knowing Google there might not be any big to-do at all, and it could simply reveal the hardware in a blog post. But however that happens, we’re starting to close in on just when to expect some of this gear, with claims that the new HTC-made Nexus tablet will launch sometime in the next seven weeks.
According to the source, we’ll see the HTC Nexus (the so-called T1) come out sometime before October 9. At least, that’s when sales of the tablet should start by, though it’s conceivable that a formal announcement could precede the start of sales by some short length of time.
Will that correspond with the public release of Android L? And what about the expected Motorola Nexus smartphone; would that debut at roughly the same time, or could Google be saving that one for closer to the holiday season? All we know is that new Nexus hardware is long overdue, and even with all the IFA excitement right around the corner, plenty of Android fans will be waiting with bated breath until this latest Nexus generation finally launches.
