Google selected HTC to make the upcoming 9-in. Nexus tablet, a report suggests, maintaining the Google tradition of changing partners between devices.

This practice allows Google to prevent any one company from having a monopoly on manufacturing, a source told the Wall Street Journal.

And although HTC’s Flyer tablet produced low sales in 2011, Google has selected HTC from its wide base of potential partners this time around, and has been considering this partnership since last year, the source said

People close to the matter said HTC engineers have been flying to the Googleplex in Mountain View, C.A to cooperate on the project.
