Up until we have started to hear all of these rumors about HTC’s upcoming M8 device, the news surrounding the company has been a little dark. Earlier today, we heard that HTC’s plans for this upcoming year are big ones, which could include wearables alongside a new device. The plans could be even bigger than we thought, with a new report suggesting that HTC could make the next Nexus tablet. 

The report comes from Focus Taiwan and suggests that HTC is the company that has “won orders for a high-end model of the Google Nexus tablet that will begin shipping in the third quarter of 2014.” This is not the first rumor we have heard regarding the maker of the next Nexus tablet. Samsung, Asus and other companies have all been names that have been floating around for a few months now, but nothing is solid with any of them.

The last Nexus device that HTC molded was the Nexus One way back in January of 2010, so getting back into the game would be a long time coming for them.

If HTC produces the M8, a Nexus tablet, and a wearable this year, would they be competitive in the market again?
