Google Nexus 9 by HTC Tipped to Launch on October 15 at $399
A new report claims that Google's next Nexus tablet will be called Nexus 9, will be manufactured by HTC, and will be launched on October 15. It added that the tablet is expected to be priced at a premium price compared to previous generation Nexus tablets.

The Bright Side of News has learned from its sources that Google's HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet will indeed launch on October 15, in-line with an earlier report, and will be priced at $399 (Rs. 24,500 approximately). About the premium price tag of the alleged Nexus 9, BSN notes that Google is aiming to "bring a premium quality device to market at an affordable price."

Additionally, the report tips that the rumoured Nexus 9 will go on sale starting November 3, while will go up for pre-orders beginning October 15. The report also claims that Google for the first time in order to offer its new Nexus tablet to a broader audience will make the device available at most major retailers online. However, the report only names B&M, one of UK's retailers, while also suggesting that the company will place mini-kiosks at select Best Buy stores.

Further, the report suggests that the alleged Nexus 9 will indeed be powered by Nvidia's Tegra K1 SoC, corroborating recent leaks.

It also points to an excerpt from Nvidia's blog (from August), "And for hard-core Android fans, take note that we're already developing the next version of Android - "L" - on the 64-bit Tegra K1." The blog further cements the fact that the Nexus 9 will pack Nvidia's chipset.

On Thursday, one of HTC's executives 'confirmed' that the yet-to-be-launched Nexus 9 would mark "HTC's commitment" to tablet market after almost three years. He also went on to suggest that the next Nexus tablet featuring an 8.9-inch display would be released in Taiwan by end of 2014 or Q4.
