Nexus 9 was recently introduced by Google as their flagship Android tablet, and also the first tablet to feature Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Nexus 9 is manufactured by HTC, and this step by the Taiwanese manufacturer also shows that they are ready to step back in the tablet market. According to HTC’s Chief Financial Officer Chang Chia-Lin, HTC is getting ready to release a premium line of tablets next year, but they will come with a hefty price.
Also, HTC’s North Asia President talked about tablets as well. He said that “There is actually a bit more room for growth and product differentiation in the high-end and mid-tier tablet segments “. He further says that HTC is not interested in competing in the low cost tablet market, because the profit margins are really slim, so it means that HTC will be releasing tablets very similar to Nexus 9 in design probably, but maybe better specs in future.
We don’t know much about the details regarding HTC’s plan, but we can expect to hear more about it in coming months. Do you think HTC should focus on tablets? Let us know in the comment box below.
