Upleaks is once again making claims of a HTC Nexus 9 based tablet from HTC being on the horizon, and that it will be a tablet made for HTC itself, and not for Google.
The 1st HTC branded Tablet will be based on the Nexus 9，dimension is almost same。but spec。。。And you won’t see it in Q1 2015。

The same claim was made by Upleaks last year, when a T1H tablet was said to be under way, also based on the HTC Nexus 9.
The HTC Nexus 9 that HTC manufactured for Google last year is the only HTC tablet in production at the moment. It would be a weird strategy if HTC were to only manufacture one other tablet to take on the large tablet brands like Samsung, Lenovo, and Asus.
LG also only have a few tablets, and they are not selling very well despite being just as good as the brands they compete against in the tablet segments they are in. So there seems to be a strong argument for HTC to not get back into the tablet game on their own with only one foot in.
