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 ?
You mean the Nexus 9 will not have ac WiFi? That's surely what most people use a tablet or phone on, Wifi. AC is the fastest Wifi. Am I missing something?
I think much better if contained IGZO screen, believe that the desire will be greater to buy it, but let me be even more expensive 150 $ that is thought to be ;)
