the tablet shield is now available.
which one would you choose considering they both have 2GB ram, tegra K1, both gonna have android L,...
both have a 16GB+wifi and a 32GB+wifi+LTE: shield 300usd/euro (16GB) or 400usd/euro (32GB); htc nexus 400 (16GB) and 500(32GB)
don't forget shield has a memory card slot:up to 128GB (missing in the htc) and mini HDMI port (i imagine slimport in htc).
htc has 8MP camera (5MP shield) (i prefer to use a normal digital camera)
i'd personally pick the 16GB shield version: MUCH cheaper, expandable memory, for internet there's everywhere wifi or i can connect to the phone's hotspot.
and you, what'd you choose?
nice spec's but a non removable battery. ! Many USA carriers won't ship cell phones or batteries usps, ups or dhl any longer. so for service; warranty you have to be near a shop. Travellers are out of luck.
I"M in Saudi or Asia and can't even ship a replacement battery/unit from USA
How many times must I remove my battery for a locked up Android display. Great tablet but does not work for me. ! 1080p recording but you can't get it out without hdmi mini port out !
aw it's a little big and heavy. I wish it would be around 8 inches so the weight can come down a bit. But we'll see. Can't wait!
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2014Will nexus 9 have usb otg? Cos my nexus7 didnt have itHi, I can only confirm that next android release (L) will support USB DAC which basically inherit USB OTG functionality. Fact can be different.
If it is going to be a 64 bit chip set than you don't need 3-4 GB RAM , just because 64-but architecture uses RAM better that 32-bit , for example see the iPad Air
Its price range is given about 30~35 k in india . And according to price range its specs are best. Some peoples don't thinks about price and comment shits . They must understand this if its specs will be high as sky then price will also be in sky.
I like much if new nexus to be 12.1 inch JDI screen and with this specs:
1.Display.- 12.1 inch 2K - LTPS TFT - 360 PPI
2.Memory.- 3-4 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Tegra K1
why 2gb ram that is suck, new generation need to be 3-4 GB RAM, please nexus do it that for fans
simonh1970, 24 Jun 2014No card slot, Google need to get over their hang up with sd cards...I've had a Nexus 7 for about a year and I don't have a need for all this memory you grave. Ive had phones where I added memory cards and I never really needed it (paying $100 for the memory cards). But the reason why you don't even need more than 16 GB is everything is on a Cloud these days. That 100 GB of music can be accessed at any time without having it "on-board".
Babara, 23 Jun 2014Every time HTC gadget is over price... they like to act like apple to overprice all the produc... moreThe HTC phones have always looked better than the Sammys. How anyone can say a plastic back looks better than the back of either M7 or M8 phones is beyond me.
hi htc ...! so good and so genuine you are! but why no more "beats audio". is there any hope for the company to get back that 25%?
Shanti, 27 Jun 2014No. The Nexus 9 will be released in the Q4 2014 (between October 1 to December 31).Thanks :) I'm so silly!
Shanti, 27 Jun 2014I'm surprised that this tablet doesn't come with a headphone port.Oops. I must have misread the spec sheet; the tablet does come with a 3.5mm jack.
molekula, 23 Jun 2014Only 2 gigs of ram?Yah. That what I was thinking. Coming from 1GB for the Gen 1 Nexus 7 to 2 GB for the Gen 2 Nexus 7, you would think HTC would up the ante and release the tablet would at least 3 GB.
Mickey_s, 25 Jun 2014This is going to be released today?No. The Nexus 9 will be released in the Q4 2014 (between October 1 to December 31).
