Nexus 9 NVIDIA

During the IFA 2014 there were again many interesting innovations around smartphones and other gadgets, and almost a little way the first patent lawsuit from NVIDIA was announced. Even if the sued companies are not small fish but something else has attracted the attention: The Nexus 9 of HTC.

It goes without saying that the proprietary technology in the field of graphics processors is used in these chips and exactly this is the subject of the first patent lawsuit the group at all (the contribution). Even if the outcome of the lawsuit could have a huge impact, the documents to the procedure probably unintentionally betrayed a trifle: The HTC Nexus Tablet 9 aka HTC Volantis (the contribution), which will be equipped with a Tegra K1 NVIDIA.

In this respect the already longer circulating name Nexus 9 is considered to be genuine, which would ultimately also attached to the rumored 8.9-inch display.

Another thing betray the documents also for Nexus 9 and here it will be really exciting: NVIDIA expects the tablet in the third quarter 2014 which means that Google for the official launch of the Nexus has 9 until the end of September. Provided the timing is right and no presumption on the part of NVIDIA. If, however, the really so and the Nexus will be presented 9 to the end of September, then that would be much earlier than previously thought, with the October 9 (for post) and would confirm the rumor that date is based.
