New Nexus Tablet Is 4:3?

Exclusive: Here’s The Official Keyboard Case Google And HTC Are Planning For The Next Nexus Tablet [Updated]

The existence of an official keyboard case combined with the tablet’s alleged 4:3 aspect ratio could signal that Google wants to make a stronger push to sell tablets as productivity devices, more than simply portals to Google Play content.

4:3? 4:3?!

I’ve ignored news about this because I didn’t expect it to be 4:3. I still doubt it will be. I don’t know of any screens between the size of the iPad Mini and iPad Air that are also 4:3.

But this is likely to be the most powerful Android tablet when released, with an alleged AnTuTu score in the 45,000-range — beating the Xiaomi MiPad by about 5,000 points.

And see, that alleged screensnap is also why I doubt 4:3. It’s 2000 x 1125, which is a 16:9 aspect ratio.

And I wonder about that score too. If that’s the 64-bit version of the K1, why is it so low compared to the 32-bit one?

Things don’t add up here.

I’d be very surprised if it was a 4:3 aspect ratio. I expect it to have an 8.9 screen, making it about the size of the Ramos i9-series tablets:
