HTC's Nexus 9 May Come With Optional Keyboard

By Gary Cutlack on at

The rumour that HTC is signed on to make the next Nexus tablet appears to have firmed up overnight, with new images showing an official keyboard case for the supposed 8-inch or 9-inch Android showcase.

According to Android Police, the HTC Nexus tablet will come with an optional smart cover accessory, one that protects the tab on the rare occasions its owner isn't listlessly prodding it and folds down into a slimline keyboard for those times when something more than 140 characters needs bashing out.

As well as the keyboard attachment, Android Police also has images of a standard case for the tablet -- pics that suggest the HTC Nexus will arrive with a 4:3 aspect ratio display. [Android Police]
