are the +100 euro/usd over the tablet shield worth
the only differences are the screen size and the kind of k1 processor, sd slot and HDMI out...
what do you think about that?
sunil, 25 Oct 2014only dual core .must have 2.7 ghz octa core processor.that's because it's using a different kind of processor, that thing is a beast
Great tablet, most likely the best of 2014 but with a couple small potencial problems for the users.
1536 x 2048 pixels its too much for a portable device, specially for games, but to be honest Tegra K1 denver can handle it performance wise, that chip its a freaking beast, battery WILL SUFFER while gaming at those resolutions tough..
2. 4:3(!) format
Some users can live with that.. i dont!
8' screen 16:10 1920x1200 its pretty much perfect for everything.
400 bucks for a 16gb version? with no MicroSD?
The MicroSD its no surprise tough.. its a nexus, never has one.. but 400? 16gb? No thanks.

They support devices like keyboard and mouse but not storage. Google dont want you to store anything locally but use their lame clouds so they make more money and can find out more about you to target their shameless ads.

mas39, 25 Oct 2014You completely forget that Qualcomm still have to release their beast of a 64-bit chip early n... moreOf course, Qualcomm will release the s810 chip in the next year and HTC M9, Galaxy S6 and LG G4 will come with the latest s810 chip. That's a different point. Definitely s810 will be far better than the s801 and s805. You have forgotten that Nividia also has to announce the Maxwell architecture Tegra M1 in the next year. It would be a beast as well.
So completion would be too competitive in the next year.
Also who wants to be seen with a tablet with 4:3 aspect ratio, looks so stupid, and no phone/messaging capabilities means you're going to have to carry around 2 devices. Most of us want an all in one device.
AnonD-116479, 25 Oct 2014Same specs heh? http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=6435&idPhone2=5823 The... moreYou completely forget that Qualcomm still have to release their beast of a 64-bit chip early next year. The s810 should defeat the tegra K1 quite easily, plus it has so many features and it too has directx11.2 together with tessellation. The Nexus 9 will be crippled with no SD Card. I have the beautiful 6.4" Sony Z Ultra 16gb + 128gb sd card. Cloud storage is useless and it's a complete laugh when people say they are going to walk around with an external hard drive, will look so stupid. 1TB and 2TB SD Cards aren't going to be too far away, and hopefully we will have 256gb SD Cards next year.

The Nexus 9 has the beast Tegra K1 chip compared to the outdated Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5420. When comes to the GPU, the Kepler DX1 it demolishes the Adreno 330 and Mali-T628. Not only GPU, but also in CPU power. Both s800 and Exynos 5420 are outdated ARMv7 architecture based chips, whereas the Tegra K1 is based on the ARMv8 architecture. There is no way that the Galaxy Tab 8 comes close to the Nexus 9 in specs and performance. Maybe Galaxy Tab 8 could have a better display than the Nexus 9 as it's an AMOLED panel.
The only competitor for the Nexus 9 is ipad Air 2.
I like the Nexus 9.
I have a 8" already from Samsung...
The TAB S,
Perform very well so I won't change it for a Nexus 9 !
Specs are similar so...
Hmm..not trying to promote anything here but just to give my honest feedback. Used Mipad for few weeks and I am hooked to it. The specs simply marvelous. Not boasting here, Tablets lover must try. The price and your expectation will be mismatched. Low price but high end tablet.Xiaomi is mean business. Too bad if you can't get it at your country.
In the end got an Nvidia Shield LTE. Virtually same GPU, more cores, STYLUS, SD card, better looking, good support. Best for the money - with the accessories.
Anonymous, 24 Oct 2014Don't be excited man. It is HTC product. Ready to witness the worst scenario. All the best. HTC's product???? Nexus lineup is a Google's product. Of course it has the HTC logo on back. But HTC is just Google's manufacturer of the Nexus 9. Motorola manufactures the Nexus 6 for Google and HTC manufactures the Nexus 9.
J Jones, 24 Oct 2014Love it! Love it! Love it! Ready to buy and enjoy it(32G). Still so very exciting!!Don't be excited man. It is HTC product. Ready to witness the worst scenario. All the best.
Love it! Love it! Love it!
Ready to buy and enjoy it(32G).
Still so very exciting!!
Will love to buy the NON-LTE version but with 32GB space... really no need to have an SD card if I am carrying my 1TB external hard disk with loads of movies...
Great specs though...
Still no expandable memory slot. Why should I rely on internet wherever I go? No thanks , I'll buy the tab S. Much better screen resolution , pixel density, superb black/contrast ratio and slot for memory.Not to mention the 8 core cpu that will give you a better multitask performance. K1 might be superior in term of a single task and graphic performance , but who cares? I don't want a tablet to play games anyway. Wait to see the poor performing LCD IPS screen in black scenes and dark environment. The edge bleeding will be there for sure.
