An 8.9 Inch Google Tablet Could Be On the Way
More Nexus for your money?

Google's Nexus range was created for a couple of reasons, not least getting in on that tasty tablet action but more importantly bringing a high quality, affordable, pure Google and Android experience into the hands of as many users as possible.

And, with two varients of the Nexus 7 and the success of the Nexus 4 and 5 smartphones, they've certainly accomplished that goal with rumours that the Nexus brand itself might be retired in the near future. But it seems there might be a few tricks left up Google's sleeve.

Technology consultants IHS spoke to CNET recently and are convinced that Google has a new 8.9 version of the Nexus in production. They say that its set to go to manufacturing this summer and will be a more premium device: "The expectation is [that] this will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications."

That's a big chance for Google, which has typically kept consumer costs as low as possible but would see it more obviously competing with the likes of the iPad mini and other tabs which are made of more impressive looking material. IHS also suggests that another refresh of the Nexus 7 could be on the cards but there's no further news on that just yet.

More as we get it.
