HTC’s Q4 financial report may not be pointing to a great future, but 2014 holds a lot of possibilities for the Taiwanese company, including their first forte into wearables and tag-teaming up with Google for the Nexus 10.
It has gotten to the point where we really don’t see the Nexus 10 coming out, unless Google wanted to put the larger tablet on a prolonged hiatus, currently spanning one and a half years.
Previously, we have heard of the Moto Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus tablet both taking the role of the 10-inch stock Android device, but neither of these ideas have come to fruition.
HTC does have a reputable background for helping out companies, they built most of the early Droid phones, had a hand in the Palm years and built the Facebook phone, the latter didn’t find much success.
We suspect the Nexus 10 could be the way for HTC to get into the tablet business once again, after the HTC Flyer failed to take off and pushed the company out of the Android tablet business.
Rumor has it the Nexus 10 will come with a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 pixel display, 8MP camera and massive 9500mAh battery.
This would put it up against the Galaxy Note Pro 10.1 and iPad Air, but the previous Nexus 10 showed Google has the brawn to handle this competition.
