I plan to buy the LTE version as a replacement of my phone, add a Sandisk Ultra Dual Drive 64 GB On-The-Go Pendrive as SD card replacement and get the Nexus keyboard to make the ultimate phone + gaming device + mini laptop + enjoy stock Android :)
Another compromise, no micro sd slot and maximum of only 32gig storage? What year is now 2008? Common google, why do you always have to make compromises?
The snapdragon 810 will offer wifi ad, low power DDR4 ram, LTE-A 300mbps, very powerful adreno 430 gpu 90% more powerful than adreno 330, which will include directx11.2 and tessellation, Bluetooth will upgraded to 4.1, it will also be more power efficient as it will be 20nm, better equipped for photography as the cpu will be a lot faster. This will be the king of all chips, htc will regret including the useless tegra k1 chip inside their weird 4:3 tablet.
very lovely nice job htc and google
i think its best android tablet
The only thing that this thing has is 64bit dual core instead of 32 bit quad core featured on nvidia shield LTE
and benchmark shows performance of 4 core 32 bit is very marginally slightly better compare to the 2 core 64 bit denver on 4.4 platform
so overall nothing new offered here except wider screen
It's really strange that the nexus 6 has a 64 GB version and this doesn't. It will probably be a reason for a lot of people to skip.
Bob, 21 Oct 2014No SD card slot, no sale.Of course, lack of SD card and 64 GB version are big issues for some buyers. Overall, the Nexus 9 is a great tab with the great Tegra K1 chip. IMO, this would be the best Android tab of this year.
Snake, 19 Oct 2014I honestly mistook it for an ipad mini at first glance >_> ..copy cats >_>Sorry apple wasn't able to file proprietary license on the shape and form of ipad so others manufacturers won't copy.

AnonD-143076, 17 Oct 2014I know that it's a nexus but if they can't sort problems of old customers with their own flags... moreThe nvidia processor used in this tablet is entirely different from the tegra 3 or tegra 4 generation tablets. Tegra K1 has a desktop class graphics chip, and 64-bit arm processors. If you take a look at any benchmarks of K1 vs other tablets, you'll see the difference.
Take a look at http://blog.gsmarena.com/nvidia-tegra-k1-cpu-is-a-benchmark-beast/.
Around 15% faster than snapdragon 805 and 25% faster than snapdragon 800.

I think it is gonna be superhero for students because of screen aspect ratio. Apple does the same but personally i really don't like Apple products and Nexus 9 will be the first world-wide brand android tablet with this 4:3 aspect ratio. And 4:3 screen ratio is really superhero for studying with powerpoint slides, ideal for taking notes etc. And if you want expandible memory so badly, and if you gonna use it mostly indoor, i suggest you to buy a wifi-drive. Yes, most of people here thinks it is a wrong decision to a nexus tablet have 4:3 and no-sdcard slot, and even tegra chipset is not what they want, but i am think this devices real user group is out of this places(tech forums etc.). They using ipads and doing their works on ipads, not only playing games with it. And like this. Thank you very much for reading..
