Nexus 8 anyone?
« on: June 02, 2014, 03:17:14 AM »
With Google I/O coming up this month and the Nexus 8 apparently a good bet, what would it take for you to move to the Nexus 8?
For me, the major consideration, would be price. My Nexus 7 2013 currently is adequately satisfying my tablet needs, so even if a Nexus 8 surfaces, with great hardware, but a price point beyond $300 US, I would be hard pressed to ditch my Nexus 7 2013 for the Nexus 8. I will admit that I am ready for a new technology toy, but I am spoiled by the Nexus 7 2013 pricing and hardware. What are your thoughts on the Nexus 8?

My 2012 N7 has slowed down so much that it's pretty much useless now; I think it's just wore out! So, I'm open for anything new, which is why I've been holding off making a purchase (and not having 'droid device at hand is driving me crazy), so the N8 would work for me. However, a lot depends on the specs and price. If I'm not happy with either -- or both -- I'll see about picking up a 2013 N7 LTE

I will pull the trigger on a new version of the tablet and the next version of the N5 ....price point is too good to pass up.

From what I have read it was strongly believed that the Nexus 8 would be made by HTC, but when reading "What to Expect" at Google I/O articles, we see that the Nexus 10 could be made by HTC and that the Nexus 8 could be made by LG or even Asus. Interesting as it is to discuss, as I/O draws closer, Google has given us a tease with the following image of what appears to be a new table on the Google I/O main page and remembering my HTC Flyer, I can see a strong indication that this device comes from HTC. It is possible that the image has been modified as an intentional misdirection from Google, but only time will tell.
