[Weekend Poll] Is The Rumored 4:3 HTC Nexus Tablet 'Volantis' Going To Be Getting Your Hard-Earned Cash?

Yesterday, we dropped a leaked image and render of Volantis, an alleged upcoming Nexus tablet built by HTC. We also dropped specification info and pricing - and that's really what this weekend's poll is about.

This new Nexus tablet isn't messing around - it will sport an NVIDIA Tegra K1 64-bit processor utilizing the company's proprietary Denver CPU core, a very powerful desktop-architecture GPU, 2GB of RAM, an 8.9" display with 2048x1440 resolution (that's 4:3 aspect ratio), aluminum construction, and will likely launch with one of the biggest Android releases (the "L" release) to date.

You can grab the phone and get free shipping to the United States, and unlike many eBay deals, the seller is shipping to a variety of countries around the world.

[Yes, Really] Investors Put Off That HTC Didn't Give Out Over $1 Million In Free Phones To Everyone At Annual Shareholders Meeting

When you're a big-shot investor in a major tech firm - or just happen to have enough shares and time to waste to get into the annual shareholders meeting - you have every right to expect free stuff at said firm's annual shareholders meeting.

At least, that's what a substantial number of attendees at HTC's yearly stock-person get-together thing expected. In fact, many of them decided to use their question time at the meeting to express their expectations, and the fact that said expectations had not been met, and seriously, what the hell man, you totally gave out free phones to everybody last year, what gives you jerks?

As we near the end of spring, so too nears the end of the mainstream release cycle for four of the biggest Android OEMs on the planet.
