The HTC Nexus 9 hands-on First look Price Specs Features Complete – HTC hasn’t made a tablet since 2011’s Jetstream and we have to say we’ve missed it. The company’s well-known premium touch has been carried over to the Nexus lineup, which in recent years focused solely on mass market affordability. The new Nexus 6 (by Motorola) smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet (by HTC) show Google has enough confidence in its home brand to push for the higher segments of the market.
The Nexus 9 has a metal rim around the device, both for rigidity and a more premium feel. It’s a 4:3 tablet similar to the iPads and is the first tablet to feature HTC’s BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers. Pre-orders will ship soon – currently available in 16GB and 32GB – and an LTE version is expected shortly after that.
