The day some, or even a lot of you are looking forward to has come. The Nexus 9 is now on sale within the Google Play store. Unfortunately, it's a "select markets only" affair as usual, with all the markets in question being Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, India, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and also the United States. Lucky you!
Currently, the tablet love-child of Google and HTC is purchased from White and Black Wi-Fi only models available in 16GB and 32GB versions, priced at $399 and $479, respectively. A third color, "Tan", will certainly be coming with a later date, together with cellular versions that do not use a price and release date yet.
The Nexus 9 packs a 8.9-inch 1536x2048 display driven using a 2.3GHz 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor paired with 2GB of RAM and powered using a 6700mAh battery. An 8-megapixel main camera, 1.6MP front cam, and front-firing stereo BoomSound speakers complete the package.
