Interesting that the Nexus 9 is the first tablet by HTC in many years. Not too long ago, HTC was doing really well in the smartphone space, and then the competition came in and took all of that away. Now, its back to tablets. I suppose this is Google rotating tablet devices, but one would think it would choose a solid manufacturer to do every flagship tablet. 

Alas, this is one of the problems of fragmentation: Trying to keep everyone happy.

I dont see that as a problem with fragmentation. I see that as keeping companies working toward the competitive edge. In the handheld race... if youre not first... youre last.

I still think HTC makes solid phones. In fact I have went back to an HTC every time ive tried a new phone. Including Apple.

Since it has not been too long since Samsung's S5 was released, I wonder if consumers that own an S5 would consider upgrading to Nexus 6. It is also interesting to ponder whether Samsung closely monitors the performance of Nexus smart phones because these devices can provide valuable data and consumer requirements for upcoming devices, such as, the S6 (or the name of the device that comes after S5).
