    HTC has been making smartphones for a very long time. The company was often used by big-name OEMs as the manufacturing company that built their hardware. Compaq and HP (back when they were in the personal digital assistant business) both used HTC to build their devices, which were arguably some of the best pieces of consumer electronics of the day. But what about an HTC tablet? HTC Tablets HTC has made some very high-end smartphones recently. The One M8 lineup looks and feels great, thanks in part to its aluminum construction - which doesn't bend like Apple's latest aluminum smartphones. ...

    Rumors about an HTC-made Nexus 9 have been kicking around for months now, but it's only been over the course of the past two or so when those rumors really started to come together and feel like they were describing a product that truly was going to launch. More recently, that momentum's been helped out by the discovery of a growing body evidence pointing (at the very least) to HTC's work on a new tablet. Today, The Wall Street Journal weighs-in on the rumors, as its sources describe why Google is supposedly going with HTC, rather than a more established tablet-maker like Samsung. While a ...

    How overdue are we for a new Nexus tablet? After two straight years of summertime launches for the Nexus 7, 2014 has so far left us empty-handed. But to hear what rumors have been telling us, our Nexus fix could be just around the corner, with expectations that an HTC-made Nexus 9 could be lurking in the shadows, nearly ready to make its debut. The evidence surrounding this device has been steadily building up, most recently in the form of the discovery of an apparent keyboard case. But even if this Nexus 9 is on the way, when would it get here? Last month, we discussed the possibility of ...

    Bit by bit, these rumors about an HTC Nexus 9 have become more and more convincing. Maybe that NVIDIA shout-out in some recent legal docs seemed a little more official than it likely was, but we're fielding reports of this HTC Nexus hardware from multiple angles, many pointing to a launch in just a matter of weeks. The latest evidence in support of this device comes to us in the form of an accessory, as Taiwan's version of the FCC takes a look at an HTC tablet keyboard case. The idea about a keyboard case for the Nexus 9 has been hanging around for a little over two weeks now, first ...

    Updated with links to the high-quality, edited version of the podcast. We hope you enjoyed; see you next week! We stayed up all night waiting for an iPhone that (almost) never came. A few days before that, we opined mightily about the smartwatch that's slated to accompany it come early next year – and a day or two before that, we took a quick look at the latest iPhone and Apple Watch competition from the Motorola camp, with the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360. It's smartwatch and smartphone soup over here at Pocketnow and, generous guys that we are, we want to share the experience with ...

    The new Nexus hardware season is approaching, with our eyes not just on a next-gen Nexus smartphone, but an overdue tablet, as well. Our best guesses as of late have zeroed-in on Motorola as a possible manufacture for the phone, but what about the tablet? More than once over the past several months we've talked about the idea of HTC building the device, and such rumors had often been accompanied by claims that the slate might run a new NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC. Today we get what may be some of the best evidence to date in favor of that idea, as NVIDIA outright names the Nexus 9 in paperwork ...

    There have been a ton of rumors surrounding a Google Nexus 9 made by HTC. Sadly, aside from a couple of model numbers here and there, the amount of detail regarding what will power this HTC-made tablet have been quite scarce. We've speculated a lot on what we should expect from this design given HTC's track record, but today we finally get details on some internals. Reports claim that the Google Nexus 9 will be powered by a 2.5GHz dual-core NVIDIA's Tegra K1 Denver processor. What makes this processor famous, in addition to its 64-bit ARMv8 architecture, is the fact that it's fully pin ...

    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 ...

    Early last month, rumors suggested that this HTC-made Nexus tablet we keep hearing about was going to be a hardware powerhouse, boasting specs like an unheard-of 5GB of RAM and 64-bit NVIDIA K1 SoC. Only problem was, that source was quickly identified as a phony. Since then we've talked a little more about HTC's plans for multiple tablets, but today we're swinging back around to the idea of this Nexus model, with new reports of high-end specs and a possible citing at a regulatory agency. While we're not talking anything so crazy as 5GB of RAM anymore, this new account still suggests that ...

    Is HTC really making the next Nexus tablet? As rumors go, this one has been incredibly persistent (especially in the absence of hard evidence), but sources continue to point towards plans for the release of an 8.9-inch HTC model. As we patiently wait to see if there's any truth to that idea, word has come in that this Nexus 9 may not be alone, and HTC's return to the world of tablets could see the manufacturer deliver another couple models in addition to the Nexus. According to @evleaks, HTC has been working on tablets with designations T7 and T12, beyond the T1 Nexus tablet. That ...

    HTC appears to finally be getting the love it deserves in the mobile space. Its two most high-end handsets from the last two years received nothing but praise from the press and consumers. The One M7 won handfuls of awards and the One M8 is slated to do just the same. And, finally, after a long stint of hemorrhaging money, the company has turned a profit. Just last month, we had cause for concern. HTC's financials weren't looking so great. Revenue was down and the company was still losing money. However, we learned earlier today that HTC has finally started to turn things around. In its Q2 ...

    A recent massive leak suggested that Google and HTC were at work on a beastly followup tablet to last year's Nexus 7, and that set the wheels in motion for what will likely be a near-endless stream of leaks from now until the announcement of the alleged device. We're now learning that in a promotional image for Android L featured by Google, the company may have just shown off an HTC Nexus 9 render. Let's take a look. There are a few things that tell us that this is not the Nexus 7 of yesteryear. First and foremost, it's the front-facing speakers (only one pictured here). This is ...

    Google's in-house Nexus brand of affordable developer smartphones has garnered a small, dedicated group of enthusiasts since the first handset, the HTC-made Nexus One, launched in early 2010. Since then, Google has partnered with Samsung and LG two times each to make the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, and Nexus 5, all of which have been fan favorite Android handsets each year. The venture was never about making money or inflating profits. Instead, it was about sticking it to the U.S. wireless providers and letting consumers choose their phone first, then choose a provider – something ...

    The Nexus program from Google is in an awkward position right now. Rumors of a Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 have come and gone, along with the possibility that the former wouldn't ever get to see the light of day. Android Silver has been another hot topic, only confusing things more, so it's comforting to finally see something concrete come up again. Today, the Nexus 9 has broke cover, HTC's newest Nexus device. First things first, this is likely the tablet we previously referred to as the Nexus 8 -- everything lines up with rumors of that device (it's made by HTC, and runs on an NVIDIA chip). ...
