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
its not only support OTG nexus even works great with gamepads (via otg or bluetooth)
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.

Also who needs a powerful gpu on a mobile device, please buy a console, laptop or a desktop if you want really high gaming. The snapdragon810 will offer the first wi-fi ad (successor to wi-fi ac), new bluetooth standard known as IEEE 802.15 WPAN which will be much faster and enhanced wilocity wireless charging support which will allow the phone to charge as long as it is near the wireless charger, so you'll be able to walk around the room within a certain distance and be free to use your phone. Qualcomm just rule!

Oh dear, you've purchased a tablet with a second rate gpu, it's confirmed that the Adreno 430 is now the most powerful GPU, beats the Tegra K1 by 23 GFLOPS, what a shame.
