With the launch of a new Nexus smartphone and tablet just around the corner, we are hearing more and more about the upcoming devices. We have heard plenty about the Motorola built Nexus smartphone, but the HTC built Nexus 9 tablet has proved more of an enigma, with plenty of false reports creeping out. Of course then, we are taking this latest rumor with a pinch of salt until launch day on October 15th (Google's scheduled date).Forbes has revealed some key features about the slate and also offered release dates and potential prices for the new Nexus tablet. One of the most interesting pieces of information could be a new feature that would be most welcome on Google's product stable. According to Forbes both the LTE and Wi-Fi versions of the Nexus 9 will come with expandable storage, something Google has not offered on its products for some time. You remember the first ever Nexus device, the HTC made Nexus One, came with expandable storage, but it was a first and last occurrence in the Nexus. It would be fitting that HTC could once again bring the feature back to the range. According to Forbes contributor Jay McGregor's sources, the Nexus 9 will feature "an 8.9-inch 2048×1440 display, weigh 480 grams, have a 64-bit dual-core processor, an Nvidia Kepler GPU and a 8MP rear-facing camera and 3MP front-facing camera." "The 16GB version will cost $399 and the 32GB LTE version will retail for $499. Both devices will have expandable memory," McGregor wrote. "I was surprised... but my source seems confident." source: Forbes
