Nexus 9 is here, running Lollipop and it’s built by HTC

Google and HTC have officially announced their newest line of Nexus devices after months of speculation that the Nexus was no more.

With pretty impressive specifications, form factor and screen size to rival the iPad, the Nexus 9 comes with brand new 64bit Tegra K1 processor, Android 5.0 Lollipop and optional magnetic connect keyboard. Along with HTC’s much vaunted Boomsound™ front mounted stereo speakers, this could be the device that HTC has been waiting for to claw back some market share for it’s old rivals.

HTC was responsible for launching the Nexus range with Nexus One back in 2010, but since then has conceded to standing back and watching Samsung, LG and Asus steadily produce Google’s products. However it looks like the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 have been removed from Google’s Play Store. Leaving the Nexus 5 (from LG), the brand new Nexus 6 (from Motorola, lets hope Philip K Dick’s estate have given the OK for this naming).

Full specs can be found here, the tablet is priced at £319 for the 16gb version and £399 for the 32gb model. Available in Lunar White and Indigo Black with an interesting Sand coloured model ‘available soon’. You can pre-order now, with shipping in 2-3 weeks.
