Rumour: HTC-made Nexus 8.9. Thoughts?

Reddit Link

Summary:

  • Nexus 8.9
  • Made by HTC
  • 'More than 2K' display
  • 'High performance' device
  • Higher than $299 pricetag

I know full well that, given all the apparently false Nexus 10 rumors, this could pan out to be absolutely nothing. But I haven't seen much discussion about it recently, so why the hell not?
