Google also announces new Nexus 9 by HTC

Nexus 9

HTC hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to tablets – remember the HTC EVO View 4G? Just barely? No? Didn’t think so.

But HTC has been a key partner for Google, starting with the first Android device, the G1, and the first Nexus device, the Nexus One. Google and HTC are hoping to rekindle their previous Android successes with the new Nexus 9, a tablet that will start at $399 and come with LTE bands that work with all major US carriers, just like the 2013 Nexus 7 by ASUS.

Here are the key specs so far:

  • 8.9-inch IPS display at 2048×1536
  • 8MP rear camera/1.6MP front
  • 64-bit Tegra K1 processor at 2.3GHz
  • 16GB or 32GB storage
  • 2GB RAM
  • 6700mAh battery
  • 153.68×228.25×7.95mm

Notably, the Nexus 9 is the first widely available 64-bit device, thanks to the chipset inside, and it also keeps HTC’s trademark BoomSound speakers.

This one will be available for pre-order starting this Friday, October 17. Any of you planning on picking one up?
