Google and HTC haven’t actually announced that they’re working on a 9 inch Android tablet together… but it’s pretty clear they are.

Now we have a little more evidence, thanks to the Chinese equivalent of the FCC. VR-Zone spotted a listing for a Bluetooth keyboard cover for the upcoming Nexus 9 tablet at the NCC.

The keyboard itself isn’t particularly remarkable. It features QWERTY keys, arrow keys, a row of number keys, and a microphone icon, among other things. The keyboard is also built into a cover which protects the front of a tablet when it’s not in use.

The Google Nexus 9 tablet is expected to feature n 8.9 inch, high-resolution display, an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, and other premium specs. As a Nexus tablet, it’ll also likely feature a relatively affordable price tag and receive software updates straight from Google.

Google and HTC are expected to announce the tablet this fall.

  1. I bought a bluetooth keyboard for my Nexus 7… I would rather walk to my PC and use the keyboard and mouse than walk to where I leave the bluetooth keyboard. It gathers dust now. I probably should use it for my media center pc.

    1. keyboards for tablets are more or less a novelty, I feel they are simply too flimsy. I rather use my 15.6 inch laptop for anything requiring a keyboard. Bluetooth keyboard for a media center is a great idea though! I should get a mini one (designed for phones), may be useful.
