Google's next tablet could be of HTC origin if rumors are correct

Google and HTC might have just partnered up to build the next Nexus tablet if a report from Taiwan is correct

It's no secret that Google likes to partner with established mobile device manufacturers to produce its Nexus line of devices, and rumors have began surfacing that HTC may have just partnered with Google to manufacture the next Nexus tablet for the Mountain View-based company. This could mean that ASUS will no longer be making the Nexus 7 tablet or that Samsung is off the list for the next Nexus 10, at the moment not much is known about the deal.


Website is reporting that HTC has won the contract to manufacturer a "high-end" Nexus-branded tablet, and that it will lie within the 7-inch to 10-inch range. It's still unknown exactly what the report means by "high-end" but personally, I am hoping for something built on the same design features of the HTC One. If I could buy a 7-inch tablet with the alloy chassis featured on the HTC One, I would be standing in line on day one. So if anyone from HTC is out there listening to what I am saying, please bring a HTC One Tab to market with pure Android and a Nexus label!
