Google have finally released their much anticipated, HTC manufactured, Nexus 9 tablet. Primarily available on the Google Play devices store, prices for the device start from £320.
Currently the only the 16GB Google Nexus 9 is in stock with a delivery time of 1-2 days. Other size variants and colours are said to soon become available, just not at the moment.
Also the current version on sale is only a Wi-Fi model, if you wanted a LTE/4G version, again you’re going to have to wait. The launch of the Nexus 9 seems to have taken a very different approach to that of its unofficial rival – the iPad Air 2. But, unlike Apple, the Nexus 9 isn’t all about appearance and showing off. It’s what’s under the hood that counts; and the Nexus 9 isn’t too shabby.
The Google Nexus 9 uses the Nvidia Tegra K1 CPU with 192 cores, has an 8.9 inch screen and has front facing speakers as well as being £80 cheaper than the iPad Air 2. It’s also running Android Lollipop from the box. I for one am already sold!
The tablet will eventually be available with 32GB of storage too and will set you back £400, but again it’s Wi-Fi only model, with 4G it’ll set you back £459. Having no SD card slot, the larger storage models will probably sell out pretty quickly so you’ll have to keep an eye out and act quick!
