November 3rd marks official launch date for Google‘s latest tablet, the Nexus 9. Well, that day has arrived for much of the globe, and you can now find the Nexus 9 available for sale through the Google Play Store, expected to leave their warehouse in one or two business days.
Not all versions are ready just yet, but you can grab the White or Black WiFi-only models now in 16GB or 32GB capacities.
The Nexus 9 also comes in a Tan color, which is still listed as “coming soon.” The same goes for the LTE versions of this 8.9-inch Android 5.0 Lollipop powered tablet, with no indication of release date, nor pricing.
The Nexus 9 is a bit of an oddity in being one of only a few Android devices with a 4:3 display aspect ratio. Not that this is a detractor from the device, as the display is proving to be pleasant to look at. From there, the HTC built slate is about everything you would expect from a modern day high-end Android Tablet.
Rocking the NVIDIA Tegra K1 CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, backed by 2GB of RAM and a 6700mAh battery, the Nexus 9 offers no shortage of oomph and promises decent battery life. Not to mention, the Tegra K1 is a 64-bit SoC. Rounding out the package, that 8.9-inch IPS LCD display, as listing in the Play Store, measures at QXGA, 2048×1536 resolution. An 8MP camera graces the rear of the device, while the front brings dual HTC BoomSound speakers.
Be sure to check out our hands on and first impression for more details, and stay tuned for our full review and more coming very soon.
If you’ve got $399 set aside for a new tablet, snap up the 16GB model from the Google Play Store now. For a few dollars more, the 32GB model, also in Black or White, will run you $479.
