The Google Nexus 9 tablet is now available with 4G LTE. Last month Google and HTC began offering WiFi-only models for $499 and up. Now you can pick up a Nexus 9 with 32GB of storage and 4G wireless from T-Mobile for $600 (spread out over 24 monthly payments of $25 each).
The Nexus 9 features an NVIDIA Tegra K1 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, stereo front-facing speakers, and a 6700mAh battery. It’s also one of the first devices to ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop software.
T-Mobile is selling the 4G model for $120 more than the price of a WiFi-only Nexus 9 with the same amount of storage.
Of course you could also just get a WiFi tablet and tether it to your smartphone, but T-Mobile offers up to 200MB of free data per month when you use a tablet on its network. You can also add a tablet to your Simple Choice Plan for as little as $10 per month.
You’ll eventually be able to buy a 4G model from the Google Play Store for $599 as well. But it’s not yet available.
Update: Google is also now selling the Nexus 9 with 32GB and 4G LTE for $599 and it’s compatible with AT&T as well as T-Mobile.
I don’t see why anyone would want a 4G device that doesn’t have GPS. Someone without a wireless router?
The Nexus 9 does have GPS doesn’t it?
I didn’t see it mentioned in either the article or the Google Play page. I looked, but maybe I missed it????
Click right in the technical specs on the play store page.
Thanks, but for others it’s left click on the right arrow button.
That has to be one of the most stupid webpage designs I’ve ever seen. I totally didn’t see those arrows. I can’t imagine why they would want to hide some of the specs off the screen so that the page is shorter, after making the page very lengthy with sales pitches? The difference in length would have been nominal.
My “click right” meant to left click on the right arrow…
Well its not really a stupid page design since many websites have been using this slideshow style pagination. Also the arrow is pretty damn visible too.
It may be visible, but I missed it because I was scanning for words. Also, at least in Chrome Ctrl-F won’t display it (it will find it as part of the count, but not display it when you kick through).
But yes it is stupid because the specs are the most important thing, so they should be prominently displayed, not hidden. Most of the rest of the page is sales fluff and could be omitted entirely.
But I guess it depends on what type of person you are. I remember when Samsung announced the S4 I watched the presentation. The 5 minutes they took to go over the specs was very impressive and then it got embarrassingly stupid thereafter. Many in the tech press were impressed with the entire show, and it wasn’t until almost a year later that there was finally discussion that the sales pitch was over the top.
Well if it helps I usually never look at official manufacturer pages for specs. Its much easier to go to sites like gsmarena and get a table view of the specs rather than trying to navigate a manufacturer advertising with a bunch of pictures and marketing gloss all over their webpage. Also GSMarena shows more information that manufacturers website sometimes don’t show. Like USB OTG support..
who the f888 would buy this..LMFAO
