T-Mobile Nexus 9 launch apparently delayed indefinitely
T-Mobile has reportedly decided to push back the launch of the Google Nexus 9 tablet indefinitely, according to a leaked internal memo.
Google's latest generation of Nexus devices seems to be off to a rather rocky start, as the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 have been quite hard to come by so far. With the Nexus 6, T-Mobile originally planned a launch for Nov. 12, but ultimately pushed that date back to Nov. 19. It now seems that the Uncarrier is again having some issues with Nexus products, this time affecting the launch of the Nexus 9 tablet made in collaboration with HTC.
Just a couple of weeks ago, T-Mobile listed the 32GB Google Nexus 9 LTE tablet on its Underground website, which serves as an online "backroom," suggesting that a launch was imminent. The listing also indicated that the Nexus 9 may launch in limited supply in December, but it remained unclear at that point.
According to the latest info, however, T-Mobile has been forced to delay the Nexus 9 launch indefinitely. The information comes from TmoNews, which got its hands on an alleged internal memo. Aside from stating that the Nexus 9 launch will suffer delays, the memo offers little information otherwise:
"Updated: Google Nexus 9 Launch Postponed (Retail, TPR, TPRi, EDPC)
Update: The launch of the Google Nexus 9 has been postponed. This article will be updated with the launch date once it is confirmed.
T-Mobile will launch the Google Nexus 9 on a date to be determined, which will be available on the web or through Ship-to (Direct Fulfillment) in HSO. This HTC device features a beautiful 8.9" screen and a 64-bit 2.3GHz dual processor," reads the leaked internal memo, according to TmoNews.
While the Nexus 6 suffered launch delays as well, at least that time T-Mobile clearly stated that it pushed back the release by a week. In this case, however, it remains unknown just when the Nexus 9 will hit the Uncarrier's lineup.
T-Mobile continues to show the Nexus 9 as "coming soon," with no preorder or preregistration option to receive subsequent notifications regarding the Nexus 9's availability.
By the look of things, it seems that T-Mobile may not be able to launch the Nexus 9 in time for the holidays. On the other hand, things could still change and this leaked internal memo should be taken with a grain of salt. We'll keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available, so stay tuned.
