Nexus 9 not so shy anymore

Nexus 9 not so shy anymore

There has been so much talk recently about the leaks of the Nexus 6 that you may be excused for letting slip to the back of your mind the Nexus 9 tablet.

Nexus 9 allegedly passes through the FCC with BlueTooth and NFC

We’ve seen some news recently on the alleged Nexus 6 ‘Shamu’, but we’re also expecting a HTC Nexus 9 tablet as well. The tablet has shown up sporadically over the last 6 months, with @evleaks reporting on model# 0P82100 as far back as June. Now a device from HTC bearing that model# has passed through the US FCC. The certification documents don’t actually tell us a whole lot except that the device is a tablet and this model at least doesn’t bear any LTE/3G radios or at least makes no mention of them, but does Dual-Band WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth[Read More...]

Is this HTC’s Action camera?

Is this HTC’s Action camera?

HTC began teasing what is thought to be their upcoming GoPro competitor this morning. The device is supposed to be announced at their October 8th ‘Double Exposure’ event in New York, but an association with a twitter account @re_camera may have given the game away early. The link to @re_camera was made through a reddit thread, which said a HTC employee had sent it to them. The only tweet originating from the account, which co-incidentally has the tag line ‘Something Remarkable is Coming’ in their header image, was released around the same time that HTC launched their teaser video this[Read More...]
