iPhones are not a part of the discussion.

He likes HTC. I tried to steer the conversation to a Nexus 5.

Where oh where is Amazon "all everything, all the time for everybody!"
The HTC One is an excellent phone

Where oh where is my front-lit color e-ink device from a reliable provider?? (Are you listening, Amazon?)

And yes, I know that's also a niche market.

Might become the mainstream if the tech gets there.
You'll either get your wish a year from now or never.

There isn't.
Not even a rumor. Just the expectation that there will be one.
Only rumors I've seen are for an 8in her that might be a phablet.

I've been waiting for the N10 as well but when Google did not release it alongside the Nexus 5, I went ahead and got a Nexus 7 (2013), I haven't used my iPad ever since, this is simply the best tablet I've owned.

But it is a rumor. 'Google' Nexus 10 2 and see. Latest rumor points to a Nov. 29 release date.

Just like the Nexus 5, rumor after rumor, and now it's official.

Unless the reviews say it is singularly bad, I'll be looking for a source early next year. Otherwise, I'm covered until Fallout 4 drives me to get an XBOX One.
On paper that's the device I'm waiting for, too, but they've had some real duds in the past and I think we're in for a long wait, especially here in the states.

That is the one he has in mind, but I think HTC might be in trouble, so I am trying to steer him to a new path.

Depending on your carrier and location you might get a good contract deal on the Galaxy S3 mini ($0.99 at AT&T--which has good voice and LTE coverage in my area) or the S4 mini ($99).
Unlocked, the S3 runs around $200.
Unlike HTC they have replaceable batteries and MicroSD slots to 64GB.

Me too. I had my eye on it and when the price dropped, I pounced - $200 outright, no contract, no payments. I have a payg plan with 7-11 Speakout for $25 a year.

I'm pretty well set for devices at the moment. I'm monitoring wrist-watch monitors or google glass. Something to use when I'm outdoors tracking an activity with my sports app, Endomondo.

For an additional $30-45 per month over a 2-year period and the probability of overages? Definitely wouldn't get a teenager one. If he wants a nice phone, he can cover the cost of phone and service. That's what my parents did with me.

I waited for a good OLED/AMOLED tablet for 2 years, but gave up on waiting and bought a Nexus 7.
