Google Nexus 9

Date Written: 12/4/14

The Nexus 9 is an 8.9" tablet made by HTC. It was announced on 10/15/14 and officially released on 11/3/14 and is the latest tablet released in the Nexus line. It is the first Android tablet to get the new Lollipop operating system which means that you can take advantage of all of the updates that Lollipop offers. It also means that it should get future updates before other Android tablets.

Overall the tablet has gotten positive reviews with comments about the high quality of the speakers and the display being common. However, other than being able to run the latest operating system there isn't anything ground breaking or new offered with this tablet. There are improvements across the board with it but nothing that causes people to 'have to have it'. There also have been some durability issues that have arisen as well as some build quality issues. The other complaint is that the largest capacity model offered is 32GB which is much smaller then what is available with other tablets like the iPad (which offers up to 128 GB internal storage).
