For those wanting a large screen tablet and a stock Android experience, the selection has been limited. The most common choice is Google’s Nexus 10, but unfortunately that tablet has not seen an update since its original release. Google spent more time refining their smaller Nexus 7 and left the Nexus 10 in the dust. Many have been waiting for a new Nexus 10 but have seen nothing. Recently, rumors have been spreading that Google is collaborating with HTC on a 9-inch tablet which is of course being called the Nexus 9. Fortunately, it looks like this device might be announced fairly soon.
This week MoDaCo’s Paul O’Brien posted a tip from an anonymous source saying that HTC is planning on announcing its Nexus 9 tablet on October 16. Earlier this year, rumors were suggesting a release date of October 9th. Whether this information was incorrect or the date was just pushed back is unknown, but this new information is being considered true.

Since a Motorola Nexus 6 is also rumored for this year, it would not be surprising if Google released both devices at the same time. Hopefully, we will see some invites to a Google event in the next few months which would confirm the launch of something big. So mark your calendar for October 16 because all signs point to a reveal of the Nexus 9 and maybe even the Nexus 6.
