With the Nexus 9, Nexus 6 and Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system made official, their availability is the one that the Android fans are waiting for. While the HTC made Nexus tablet is yet to be released, the device has been spotted on the India Play Store and it is priced at Rs 28,900 for the Wi-Fi only 16 GB variant and Rs 44,900 for the 32 GB LTE model respectively.
Though Google announced the Nexus 9 in three color options including Sand, Lunar White and Indigo Black, the Indian website has listed only the Black variant. We can expect HTC to sell the device directly in India as it marks the re-entry of the vendor into the tablet market segment after a long while.
The Nexus 9 features a soft touch back and a metallic frame providing a premium look and feel to the device. Also, there is an 8.9 inch display with a resolution of 2048×1536 pixels layered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protecting coating and 4:3 aspect ratio. There is a 64 bit Nvidia Tegra K1 processor that is teamed up with Kepler graphics engine and 2 GB of RAM. The device comes with two storage options – 16 GB and 32 GB that cannot be expanded externally.
On the imaging front, the Nexus 9 features an 8 MP primary camera with auto focus, LED flash and FHD 1080p video recording and a 1.6 MP front facing selfie camera with HD 720p video capture. There is support to LTE connectivity along with the usual ones and a 6,700 mAh battery. The Android 5.0 Lollipop based tablet comes with front facing dual speakers with HTC BoomSound as well.
