Unless the above tablet image is just a placeholder, we now have a clear image of the front of the HTC-made Nexus 9 Android tablet. As you can see, an image of a type cover case for the Nexus 9 has been leaked, and it is wrapped around what is likely the actual Nexus 9 tablet. If this type cover works well, Google's new Nexus tablet could compete on two fronts, fighting against both the Apple iPad and the Microsoft Surface product line. More than likely, this type cover will be an additional option, but it's possible the combined pricing of both will still be more affordable than the current Surface Pro 3 from Microsoft. When you factor this in with the 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 chipset, we have the makings of an ultra-high-end product. If Google sells it at a competitive price point, we could see them erode marketshare from both Apple and Microsoft.
