Google's focus has shifted from Nexus 8 to Nexus 9 with an 8.9″ screen instead, which might possibly reveal on the Google I/O conference
According to Digitimes, Google is planning to bring forward this year's first tablet project for the company. Following the trends in the market, an 8.9″ tablet by Google might be in the works already. Although the 7″ form factor is considered affordable and consumers are comfortable with it at the moment but there is no reason why makers of tablets should not experiment with other sizes. And we do have many manufacturers who are trying to experiment with different form factors. For instance, we have Samsung's 12.2″ tablets and ASUS on the other hand is already working on its 13.3″ tablet which is reportedly based on some Intel chipset and will feature a dual-boot setup.

Coming back to the Nexus, we had a few rumors a couple of days ago that there is going to be a Nexus 8 which will be based on an Intel Bay Trail-T chipset. However, it seems now that the plans for the tablet have taken another direction and they have shifted to a Nexus 9 with an 8.9″ screen instead. We are hoping that we would get a glimpse of the new tablet on the Google I/O conference which is scheduled for June 25.
