Ive, on the other hand, focuses on his design philosophies and processes (as you might expect from the Apple exec). Check out both interviews below: (more…)

It’s great to see HTC back in the Nexus line, and this time they have built the tablet Nexus, which hasn’t seen an upgrade in three years.

As was widely expected, we’re looking at a larger, squarer design this time around. Same Nexus logo on the back, and with the camera and flash tucked up in the top-left corner.
