Nexus 9-32

Update: The Nexus 9 LTE is now available on the Google Play Store for $600 for those who wish to buy it directly.

Original post: The HTC Nexus 9 is a curious device. With an unconventional 4:3 aspect ratio, uneven build quality (read: quality control issues), and a pretty premium price, it’s more-or-less everything the Nexus 7 wasn’t. Then again, with its 64-bit CPU, Lollipop packing performance, it need not be. Previously available only in Wi-Fi only variants (with the Sand “gold” variant nowhere to be seen), from today T-Mobile has become the first carrier to sell the LTE model, and has beat even the Google Play Store to the proverbial punch.

As always with the Uncarrier, pricing is set to $0 up-front, with 24 monthly installments of $24.99. The Full Retail Price (FRP) therefore comes out to $599.76, which makes it significantly more expensive than the Wi-Fi model. The LTE tablet is sold only in the black color variant unfortunately, and has the larger 32GB capacity storage.
