Google Nexus 9 LTE now available, Android 5.0.1 Lollipop factory image up for grabs
The LTE model of the Google Nexus 9 has finally become available, as interested customers can now grab it from T-Mobile or Google Play.
The Google Nexus 9 made its official debut back in mid-October and stirred lots of interest since the very beginning. The tablet marks the revival of Google's collaboration with HTC, and comes as the very first slate to rock the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop, serving as one of the launch vehicles for the new OS. Moreover, the tablet is already set to receive the updated Android 5.0.1 Lollipop.
The HTC-made Nexus 9 boasts high-end specs and features all around, as well as a neat design with a premium metal frame around its edges. It may not sport the aluminum unibody design of the HTC One series, as many hoped for, but it nonetheless looks and feels good.
In terms of specifications, the Google Nexus 9 rocks an 8.9-inch display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels at a 4:3 aspect ratio, which makes it the first non-widescreen Nexus tablet. Under the hood, the device features a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processing powerhouse, clocked at 2.3GHz and paired with 192-core Kepler graphics and 2GB of RAM.
Other specs of the HTC Nexus 9 include 16GB or 32GB of internal storage capacity, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 1.6-megapixel front shooter, NFC, and optional LTE. As previously mentioned, the slate rocks Android 5.0 Lollipop on board out of the box, which brings neat improvements to the UI, superior battery optimization, enhanced security and business features, Google's new Material Design, and more.
In fact, the Google Nexus 9 is also ready to receive the updated Android 5.0.1 Lollipop, with the factory image available at this link.
So far, only the Wi-Fi-only models of the Nexus 9 have been available for purchase, but the LTE variant finally made its debut as well, just in time for the holidays. T-Mobile is currently selling the LTE-enabled version of the Nexus 9 for $24.99 per month for 24 months or at the full retail price of $599. Alternately, the Nexus 9 is also available from Google Play for the same $599 full price. Only the 32GB model in Indigo Black is available at this point.
