HTC building the next, and possibly last Nexus tablet? According to a new report, HTC is potentially building the next Nexus tablet, an impressive device that could be the last in Google's line of reference devices.
If accurate the HTC "Volantis" (codename) could have an 8.9-inch display with 2,048 x 1,440 resolution, 2GB of RAM and run on a Tegra K1 processor, which has four Cortex A15 processors at 2.3GHz and includes a third-generation battery-saver core as the fifth chip.

The device could be the last Nexus tablet ever made, if earlier reports are accurate. Google is said to be ending the Nexus line of reference devices and instead focusing on Android Silver, a program for OEMs that will build their own devices running a pure Android experience, just like the current "Google Play Editions" of popular devices like the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8.

Price-wise, the tablet will sell for $399 for 16GB, placing it in direct competition with the slightly smaller iPad Mini with Retina.

Expect the new tablet in the Q4.
