Lol, 10 Oct 2014No. They don't do micro sd slots becausw they take up space that isn't resourceful in the device. Resourceful my lower back side. This isn't a galaxy alpha with 6.7mm thickness, it's a full blown 9" tablet with 7.9mm thickness. The Z3 has one so should every phone and tablet have one. Google might want to make it all cloud and shit, but when Android loses popularity because of this they''ll look back and think it was stupid.
32gb storage, maybe 28/29 usable
I won't buy that even if it has support until Android 9.2.2

I'm an amateur artist and I'm looking for a tablet for digital drawing on the go. This tablet is awesome but lacks the digitizer. But I'm expecting some good styluses for android in CES 2015. I was going to buy an iPad Air, but they are nowhere useful like Android these days IMO. I hate Wacom that they only make the best Bluetooth Stylus for iPad's... But a capacitive fine tip stylus works for me.
This is my dream tab.. Loveeeee it.. With HTC rest assured it will be a looker n performer.. That chipset with the display and 64bit architecture, the cam .. Gosh who cares bout sd cardwhen u have cloud storage these days or spend a lil extra n get more storage..
This is zillion times better thn my iPad which has become lik this second grade hanging machine.. Waitinggg..

Want a stylus. Badly. Would be such a waste otherwise. However, with the Flyer being their only attempt... highly unlikely. Still NEEDS a stylus.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2014While I too am waiting to see the release of the Nexus 9 I can't help but wonder why this is c... moreIf u say that , than what about apple that has soo far stick with 1gb of ram and 16 gigs of storage ? but the only difference was a beefy 64bit architechure , why would someone need 3-4gb ram when the system can open apps more quickly than resuming them lol
While I too am waiting to see the release of the Nexus 9 I can't help but wonder why this is considered such a leap forward. The RAM is the same, the storage is the same, and the screen is a bit larger. The only ''OMG!!'' factor here is the 64-bit CPU which I grant you should be worth seeing how much it improves performance. I would like to have seen them jump to 3 or 4 GB RAM and the storage options should be 32 or 64GB since there is no card slot.
The price point of the Nexus 7 2013 32GB model at $270 (often found for about $200) was reasonable and something a person could do every year or two. With the higher end version of the Nexus 9 being guessed at around $400 to $500 I can't justify upgrading.
I was very excited about the Nexus 9 until I found out that there will be on SD card slot. What a bummer. What is wrong with these people. Amazon will not put a card slot on the Fire tablets because they want to sell you cloud storage so maybe Nexus is up to the same crap.
AnonD-90736, 05 Oct 2014This is useless without a card slot, no wife as, only 2gb ram, useless tegra chip should have ... moremaybe u should in to the nexus line more. if did then u would know that the phones are nexus 5s, 7" tablets are nexus 7 and bigger tablets are nexus 9". like the Samsung nexus 9" last year
Nexus is 4 developers, the Nexus 9 need a 64bits CPU. And all tests say k1 is twice faster than the 805. Life the present.
... And why is the nVidia Tegra useless?
How is your application impacted by the selection of this chip vs. that?
It is indeed strange - Google's religious fanatism and blindness to reality (when it comes to ommitting an external, removable data storage.
& Lastly - price! I saw guesses at $400+. One can get a better tablet from very respectable OEM for $250. So that makes no sense. As much as lack of sense as charging $150 for the LTE chip.
This is useless without a card slot, no wife as, only 2gb ram, useless tegra chip should have been s805 instead, weird resolution should have been 2560 * 1440, 7.9" screen instead of 8.9" then it would have been fine to buy.
wtf with you guys ?
NEXUS DEVICES DO NOT HAVE SD CARD !
difficult to understand ? no ?
