HTC is ready to go to market with a new tablet that has a 8.9-inch screen and is supposedly being called the Volantis. Although, there is a good chance that this could be the Nexus 9 Tablet from Google but since we have not heard much about a tablet in the making from Google, so it can be assumed safely that this tablet is indeed a HTC baby and is soon expected to launch in the market as HTC Volantis.
The tablet has a 8.9-inch screen with a display resolution of 2048 by 1440 pixels, Aluminum body and a Tegra K1 processor. The price of the HTC Volantis tablet is expected to be around US $399 for the 16GB storage edition and US $499 (Rs. 30,000 in Indian currency) for the 32 GB edition. There is another edition of the tablet with 4G / LTE and that is going to cost US $600 (Approx. Rs. 34,500 in Indian currency).
