HTC has introduced tablets in the past, but they never failed to fail. Finally, the new Nexus tablet will be made by HTC and thankfully it will not have HTC Sense UI in it. This new 9 inch tablet is called the Nexus 9 and runs on Android 5.0 a.k.a. Lollipop. At first glance, the Nexus 9 looks like a bigger Nexus 5 with metal rim. But there ends the similarity. Nexus 9 had a large 9 inch IPS display with 2048 x 1440 resolution. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. At this size, the Nexus 9 comfortably replaces the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. It is powered by 64 bit Nvidia Tegra K1 chip which was featured in the gaming monster Shield tablet. Nexus 9 has 2 GB of RAM and has 16 GB and 32 GB storage variants. The rear camera is 8 MP and the front facing camera is a 1.6 MP. Nexus 9 also inherits the Dual front-facing speakers with HTC BoomSound from HTC flagship devices.
The wifi models 16 GB model will be priced at $400 while the 32 GB model is priced at $480. The LTE variant which has 32 GB of storage will burn $600 off your pocket. All the models are available in 3 colors: Indigo Black, Lunar White, Sand.
