Another website rumored that HTC is going to have a grand event this October 8, which would be dominated by the unveiling of the HTC Google Nexus 9. This program is scheduled to happen in the US—most probably in New York. There are some reports that have been leaked on the internet directly from the production facility but there are still unconfirmed reports on the specifications and designs of the Nexus 9. When you search the internet for photographs of the HTC Google Nexus 9, you may find some vague images that may look to be some cheap tablets that are edited in MS Paint or Adobe Photoshop.
In the coming months, HTC is planning to tap the lucrative tablet market by launching the HTC Google Nexus 9 tablet at an affordable cost. Although there are many rumors around the pricing of the HTC Google Nexus 9, you can be sure that HTC will not keep this tablet at a high price. Why? The answer is very simple—there is tough competition and a wrong pricing decision can incur substantial losses to the company. The ever-increasing tablet market will not give HTC a second chance with the pricing; hence, the company has to make sure that it prices its tablet in a perfect category.
The sales of the HTC One M8 have not picked up the way it should have, but with the launch of HTC Google Nexus 9, the company would not want to repeat the same mistakes. It is for sure that HTC has done a detailed study into the market demographics and devised the most suitable marketing plan for the HTC Google Nexus 9.
With a large battery, 8MP rear facing camera, 4GB RAM, the HTC Google Nexus 9 tablet is all set to capture the imagination of the tablet lovers. If the rumored specifications turn out to be true, then HTC Google Nexus 9 will be considered to be the tablet of the decade.
Competing with the likes of iPads and Notes, the HTC Google Nexus 9 will surely have to do something extra to gain consumer attention. Only time will tell if HTC Google Nexus 9 wins the race or remains just a laggard.
