Anonymous, 30 Jul 2014the tablet shield is now available. which one would you choose considering they both have 2GB... moreI would have chosen the HTC Nexus 9 over the nVidia Shield Tablet since it has a way better display.
AnonD-302647, 05 Sep 2014Where is the sdcard???Google's Phones and Tablets never have SD card slots and for the foreseeable future likely never will.
1536x2048. 96 pixels are reserved by navigation bar.
And why does it say quad-core Cortex A15, when it's supposed to be ARMv8 dual-core Denver to utilize Android L 64-bit support?
Why also 2GBm when supposed to have 4GB for same reason.
Why don't do it same or better of this samsung, nokia, htc, hp, dell.....
CPU specs are wrong here Android L includes 64 bit support so itmakes sense it will launch with a 64 bit CPU. Correct CPU specs into these
Dual core 64 bit Denver CPU
AGAIN, Google stubbornly refuse to incl a SD slot for more memory! They're trying to force data to the cloud for the world to see! Don't need it, don't want it!
HTC & Google need to do new thinner minimaly 14 inch tablet or more for rivals, how contain this specs :
1.Display.- 14-16 inch QHD - IGZO LED-Backlit - CGG
2.Memory.- 4 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Tegra K1
4.Camera.- 2 MP 1080p@60fps front and back
5.OS.- android os
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2014the tablet shield is now available. which one would you choose considering they both have 2GB... moreIt will come down to two things. Build Quality and SD card. Terga Shield will have SD card, the Nexus will have a better build.
the tablet shield is now available.
which one would you choose considering they both have 2GB ram, tegra K1, both gonna have android L,...
both have a 16GB+wifi and a 32GB+wifi+LTE: shield 300usd/euro (16GB) or 400usd/euro (32GB); htc nexus 400 (16GB) and 500(32GB)
don't forget shield has a memory card slot:up to 128GB (missing in the htc) and mini HDMI port (i imagine slimport in htc).
htc has 8MP camera (5MP shield) (i prefer to use a normal digital camera)
i'd personally pick the 16GB shield version: MUCH cheaper, expandable memory, for internet there's everywhere wifi or i can connect to the phone's hotspot.
and you, what'd you choose?
nice spec's but a non removable battery. ! Many USA carriers won't ship cell phones or batteries usps, ups or dhl any longer. so for service; warranty you have to be near a shop. Travellers are out of luck.
I"M in Saudi or Asia and can't even ship a replacement battery/unit from USA
How many times must I remove my battery for a locked up Android display. Great tablet but does not work for me. ! 1080p recording but you can't get it out without hdmi mini port out !
aw it's a little big and heavy. I wish it would be around 8 inches so the weight can come down a bit. But we'll see. Can't wait!
Anonymous, 10 Jul 2014Will nexus 9 have usb otg? Cos my nexus7 didnt have itHi, I can only confirm that next android release (L) will support USB DAC which basically inherit USB OTG functionality. Fact can be different.
If it is going to be a 64 bit chip set than you don't need 3-4 GB RAM , just because 64-but architecture uses RAM better that 32-bit , for example see the iPad Air
Its price range is given about 30~35 k in india . And according to price range its specs are best. Some peoples don't thinks about price and comment shits . They must understand this if its specs will be high as sky then price will also be in sky.
