Google working with HTC on an upcoming 9-inch tablet

HTC logoWe have been hearing rumors of Google working with HTC over an upcoming Nexus tablet for months now. WSJ has now confirmed from its sources that the two companies are indeed working on a 9-inch tablet.

According to the sources, Google switches between brands to build the Nexus devices to prevent any one manufacturer from gaining monopoly, which should explain why it went with HTC despite HTC not having a particularly strong track record when it comes to tablets.

HTC refused to comment on the matter but Google said, “Android is a vibrant ecosystem, and many of the industry players are doing very well. There’s room for many partners to do well and to innovate with Android.”

Google's next wave of Nexus devices, including a Motorola made smartphone and the aforementioned HTC tablet, are expected late this year.
