The much rumoured HTC Nexus tablet – codenamed ‘Volantis’ or ‘Flounder’ – is very much anticipated after Google let the 1-year release window for their Nexus 7 line slide without any new announcements. The tablet has apparently quietly slipped through the WiFi Alliance – the certification body for WiFi capable devices – earlier this month.


It’s an AOSP, Android L device, which is a great sign that this is indeed a Nexus device, with Google traditionally releasing a reference device for each new software platform. The listing, as you can see, also uses the fishy ‘Flounder’ code-name which Google traditionally has given to their Nexus devices.

There’s three model numbers listed – 0P8210000, 0P8220000 and 0P8230000 – with the 0P8210000 model number being sighted in the recent certification of what was believed to be the Volantis/Flounder by the Radio Research Agency (RRA) in Korea. It was also the model # listed for the Volantis/Flounder given by @evleaks

With three model #s listed, it’s most likely that 16/32GB Wifi and 32GB WiFi/LTE models will be released as has previously been the case, with the Nexus 7 (2013). We certainly can’t wait to check it out when it is released.

Yeah 16/32gb is so outdated. Go the 32/64gb options… should be standard nowdays, despite Google’s “connected” theme.


If this is going to be a premiumly priced device, that will have to be 32/64GB and 64GB WiFi/LTE.

And if it’s an ‘L’ device, that means launch with the Nexus 6, most likely, in Oct/Nov.

A 64GB Nexus Tablet with LTE would be pretty sweet, especially if it has 2300MHz and a decent size screen (9″<)
