ASUS, LG and HTC in the running for the next Nexus tablet: Rumor

2014 Nexus 7

With ASUS producing two of Google’s 7 inch Nexus tablets, it has been widely believed that it is in the running to produce the 10 inch Nexus tablet as well. But a new rumor has listed three new candidates for the next Nexus tablet, which we’re guessing is the successor to the 2013 Nexus 7. While the report from Taiwan claims that the decision will not be made until the end of December, companies like ASUS, HTC and LG are reportedly in the running to produce the next Nexus tablet. Neither of the companies are available to comment on the issue as we expected, so we’re still far away from confirmation.

Given ASUS’ expertise in the tablet industry and history with Google, we can expect the manufacturer to be the front runnerĀ for the 2014 Nexus 7. But LG and HTC which have accrued significant praise for their smartphones over the course of the years, could also be in the running. LG in fact has now been involved with Google for two Nexus smartphones (Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5), so there’s no reason why Google shouldn’t go with the Korean manufacturer for its tablet refresh. HTC however hasn’t produced a Nexus device since the Nexus One back in 2010. So it would be very surprising to almost every Android fan out there if Google picks HTC as the manufacturer for the next Nexus tablet. This is quite an interesting revelation and we expect to learn more as we head into the latter part of 2013.
