HTC has not officially announced the much touted Nexus 9 tablet yet, but rumors have been strong enough, ever since last year. It is also being said that the forthcoming device might come with a 64-bit SoC with a 192-core Kepler GPU, making the Nexus 9 an exceptionally powerful gaming device. However, HTC kept mum on the rumors surrounding the Nexus 9 tablets.
The next-generation Nexus tablet launch is likely only a few days away, as GizBot has spotted an HTC-made tablet/computer on India import website Zauba. According to the shipping database, the purported tablet was imported from Taiwan to Delhi.
One further observation, we can see that three units of the so-called "HTC Tablet PC" were sent for R&D purposes. The pricing suggests that the device may be a high-end tablet. The value of the tablet as per Zauba database is Rs. 23,742, but the retail price will likely to be more.
Meanwhile, HTC's forthcoming ‘Volantis' tablet has been often tipped as the Nexus 9. Firstly, this is likely the tablet which was earlier referred to as the Nexus 9. The tablet has been rumored alongside HTC's very own tablet, confusing things more often.
Today, HTC Volantis has been spotted on Zauba tracking website. Apparently, there's a device that seems to be the HTC Volantis Tablet. According to the database, a power board kit for the HTC Volantis was shipped into India on Aug. 13, worth Rs. 44, 239. Although it hardly gave any info about the tablet, but we got to know that a slate named "HTC Volantis" exists in reality.
‘HTC Volantis' is apparently the tentative name of the upcoming Nexus 9, but neither Google nor HTC are ready to share more info. The upcoming tablet is expected to get launched alongside the Android L- release in Q4 2014.
