Droid Annihilator, 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!

Straight up dumb feature, to say the least. Also, looking up a product before just buying into a sales pitch from someone who's getting commission from every sale is a pretty good thing to do these days. Just sayin'.

Cherish, 14 Jan 2015why Ipad air 2 cost more than nexus 9 even it had less features than nexus 9That is a stupid question...
Got brand new Nexus 9 LTE yesterday after long waiting... Needed to use it both as phone (with BT headset) and tablet, but NOW I REALIZED I WON'T BE ABLE TO MAKE AND GET PHONE CALLS FROM MY SIM CARD. Asked HTC and they told me it's a strategic (!?) choice as NEXUS 9 is just a tablet, not a phone... But other brands' tablets DEFINITELY CAN BE USED AS PHONES, even cheap ones with LTE support! I'm totally upset and I'm going to give this useless device back straight away. Useless waiting, lost my trust in Google and HTC.
why Ipad air 2 cost more than nexus 9 even it had less features than nexus 9

regs, 07 Jan 2015And you obviously doesn't take in account that Adreno 430 is still not on the market. Just ann... mores810 is Qualcomm's first 64 bit chip, the X1 will be Nvidia's second 64 bit chip, so you can't compare the two. The s810 should be compared to the K1 which it so obviously outclasses.
