    If their patents are valid then let them sue, and some of them seem valid (like the GPU as a thing, patented decades ago, that's valid but they should have probably used it before now). The problem with Apple's lawsuits is that they're usually for trivial things, like curved edges on a square icon... things where the patent should be invalidated.

    Rumour mill has been churning as I'm sure you're aware. Android L is the first release to be 64-bit, qualcomm are releasing their 64-bit chips now and high end ones in Q1 2015 so it's not inconceivable that nvidia would have a 64-bit chip of their own by now. Nexus devices are meant to be an indication of where Google thinks the industry should aim next so again the chip choice makes sense...

    At the same time whatever, I bought a shield tablet so unless a nexus 9 is absolutely fabulous I'm sitting this generation out

    The problem here is the bar for 'valid patent' in 'murica is comically low. You could probably patent the wheel and the USPTO would rubber-stamp it.

    It would seem an ideal launch vehicle for Denver and the timing would be right.

    Given the 32 and 64 bit variants of K1 are pin compatible, even a leaked prototype wouldn't tell you for sure though

    But 64 bit Denver just makes sense doesn't it?

    I hope this isn't going to be the only Nexus tablet, 9" is too big for me.

    Shame Nexus devices have a high tendency to fail for many different reasons.

    Any evidence of this claim? I don't think we can make claims on reliability seeing as HTC haven't made a Nexus device for quite some years...

    You beat me to it smudger, as far as I'm aware there are two current (main) Nexus devices:
    Nexus 4 - which is basically an LG G2 and doesn't seem to be suffering from any notable reliability issues;
    Nexus 7 - there were hardware issues June last year (gleefully pounced on by the pro-Apple press, with plenty of "it's cheaper than an iPad Mini for a reason"), but that's been dealt with.

    As to smudger's comment/question on HTC reliability, we've had three HTC phones in the house and all three were pretty reliable hardware. In fact the only negative comment was that HTC seem to underspec with regards to storage.

    So eiamhere69, like smudger says ... where's your evidence to back up your "unreliable" claim?

    +1 To HTC being reliable. Currently rocking a One M7 and it's bullet proof so far. As you'd expect. However, my girlfriends original Desire is still going for it. Three years in the hands of a careless person! And it's spent the last year and a little bit in the pockets of one the queens finest constabulary (in case it jumps out of his pocket when he's running somewhere he didn't want to brake his actual phone so he just throws a PAYG sim in it)!

    This sounds really nice to my ears. That might be *the* tablet. I just hope it'll have at least mini-USB so you can attach an external HD. That would be nice. SD cards are too expensive.

    Would you please elaborate? Nexus 7 has been the most fantastic device I have come across as a tablet. The only problem that I have experienced was Bluetooth 4.0 signal interference with Wifi 2.4 Ghz that is duly avoided by setting "automatic search for all nearby Bluetooth devices", off.

    Depends on how much capacity you actually need. Amazon will quite happily sell you a 64GB microSD card for less than £26. If you want double that capacity then your budget needs to go to £70. Remember it's a tablet so schlepping around a HDD - even a laptop style one - is probably going to be a nuisance after a while, (not to say anything about the hit on the battery life of running a normal HDD)

    A quick Google search will bring up a list of hits from last year, e.g. Google's Nexus 7 tablets dying early due to defective hardware and software but to be honest these seem to have been "settling in" troubles and, like you, I'd heard that the '7 was pretty darned reliable. And still cheaper than the (inferior?) iPad Mini. Although you might want to have a quick look at 18 annoying problems with the Nexus 7, and how to fix them which is from this year.

    I don't intend to prolong a simple disagreement -mind if I have a last proclamation and take my leave?
    "It speaks volumes when we are discussing a contemporary device in this topic".
    I would further speculate on it this much: recalling the times I came across random reboots, my netbooks rebooted more times than my Nexus 7 did. It also happens to trivialize any external monitor by virtue of its elegance.
