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.

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.
Buy Nexus 9 = "OK Google, takes my money" :(
This thing or iPad Mini 2? Having a dilemma...
No SD card slot, no sale.

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..
