So, this means that Google’s first Android L tablet will compete directly with the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3, if it does see the sunlight. And this is definitely the last thing Apple needs, as its overall tablet sales are decreasing.

8.9-inch 2048×1440 display
480 grams
64-bit dual-core processor
Nvidia Kepler GPU
2GB of RAM
8MP rear-facing camera and 3MP front-facing camera
“Brushed aluminum” frame
HTC BoomSound, dual front facing speakers
