A new report from Bright Side of News is pointing towards a launch of the HTC Nexus 9 on October 15. Google has reportedly partnered with HTC this time around for this year’s Nexus tablet, the 8.9-inch Nexus 9. Leaks of the aluminum-trimmed device have come out multiple times and with this latest news, it looks like we could see the Nexus 9 launch sooner rather than later.
The tablet is said to be priced at $399, making it an affordable premium tablet. While the device will launch on October 15, it appears that its availability won’t come around until November 3 and interestingly enough, it won’t be sold exclusively through the Play Store. The Nexus 9 will be available through several different outlets, giving it a broader reach than many previous Nexus devices.
The date of October 15 comes in as an ideal date to launch the Nexus 9, Nexus 6 and Android L all in one fell swoop. If the Nexus 6 was to launch at the same event, then it would line up with yesterday’s news that the Nexus 6 would launch before the end of October. If the stars align and this all ends up being true, then we could have a packed week of announcements and releases next week.
