Bangalore: Google is partnering with HTC instead of Asus for the launch of their 8 inch tablet Nexus 8. Nexus 8 is rumored to release by 3Q this year.

Google had partnered with Asus for the previous two generations of the Tab, but for the next generation of the Tab Google has switched to a new partner so that it can push new designs.

Google had placed restrictions on its partnership with ASUS, due to which ASUS is not taking any initiative in the development of the Nexus 8 instead its focusing on manufacturing its own Tabs and Smartphone’s.

For the development of Nexus 7 also Google had approached HTC, but as HTC was more interested in the re-establishment of its Smartphone market they declined the offer.

It is also said that Google is not very aggressive about its third generation Tab because the series has already helped in making the android platform popular in the tablet market and with Nexus not having much influence in the market, this might be the last Nexus tablet.
