Not trying to start an argument but, rather, I'm researching my next tablet.

Since You don't know till now - you will never know it. Stay stuck in your wooden universe. 2GB ram on 64bit is sometimes even slower then 32bit... BUT For sure is NOT FASTER!!! 64bit is good in higher memory arrays.... I Bet that your computer OS was upgraded to 64bit before it ever got over 4GB of ram, huh?

rohith, 02 Apr 2015Does htc google nexus 9 supports whatsappWhatsapp isn't available in Google play market for tablets
you can manualy download whatsapp from http://www.whatsapp.com/android and install it
and use a NEW number to register it..
remember that you can have only one whatsapp activated per number, If you try to re-register again with your tablet, the old whatsapp won't work anymore.

The lack of ability to make cellphone calls, and the lack of dual-sim support, makes this tablet useless.
When it comes to gaming, Nexus 9 is nothing compared to Nvidia Shield tablet.

I bought a Nexus 9 on sale from Office Depot for $329 and used it for a couple of weeks, but returned it. Overall, I would give it a 7/10, marked down for the following:
- light bleed at corners
- thicker than iPad 2 and Sony Xperia Compact Tab
- too heavy for a premium 9" tab
- price too high at $399
Otherwise, I loved Lollipop, and the speed of the processor. If this had been build like the Sony Xperia Compact Tab, it would have been perfect. Too bad HTC/Google decided to go for a mid-range industrial design.

Sound like you need a smartphone not a tablet?
AnonD-72853, 21 Jan 2015Because Air 2 arguably has better specs. That, or Apple is just greedy...I have a N9 and I agree that the Air 2 has better specs.
- Android 5 owns iOS8. Multi user, true multi tasking.
- Better stereo sound than Air 2's sound.
- Cheaper than Air 2.
- OTG is a killer feature
Pro Air 2:-
- Premium feel build quality.
- Better screen than N9.
- Better camera, but only if you're picky.
- Significantly more tablet ready Apps than N9.
If I could run Android 5 on an Air 2, I'd be in heaven.
Maybe I have a newer batch to the early adopters, but apart from Apps that still don't play nice with Lollipop, I'm genuinely impressed with the Nexus 9.
Very nippy, very smooth and the only little teeny weeny gripe is the screen which was the tiniest light bleed which can be seen when the screen is very black, and the pixel density which is less than the 300+ we've come to expect from devices these days.
Everything is buttery smooth, NO LAG WHATSOEVER, WiFi is solid, stereo speakers are gorgeous, and it charges up pretty quick for a tablet of this size.
Just like with N7 and N10, early adopters got some lemons, and that's just too bad. My N9 rocks!
