2. Nexus 8 Comes This Summer and Is Made By HTC

The Nexus tablets are known for great value for their price as the latest Google’s tablet, Nexus 7 2013 can be literally named one of the 3 best Android tablets so far. According to the news, the affordable Nexus tablets are going to have another member, which is expected to be an 8-inch tablet made by HTC. If the rumors are to be held true, it means Google is not going to partner with ASUS for making its first 8-inch tablet and the Taiwanese company will be held again responsible for production after the succe ssful Nexus One.

There is absolutely no exact time when the announcement will happen (although summer and especially June is a probable time), but Nexus 8 has the potential to be a game changing product whenever it gets announced.
