The tablet runs Google’s latest version of Android, called Lollipop. This version has a sleek new design and great new features compared to previous versions. The performance of the Nexus 9 are somewhat volatile, and despite powerful hardware it sometimes slows while. Most of the time, however, it works fine. Compared previous Nexus tablet price of 399 euros is more in line with those of other manufacturers, so the competition is quite fast and we 16GB non-expandable storage memory to find the meager side.

Google’s Nexus devices have always had two goals: to inspire other manufacturers to make better products and provide developers a device on which they can test their latest software. Because of that second objective Nexus devices always been relatively inexpensive, so far as possible, interested parties could get to work.

This year, Google does it differently. The new Nexus smartphone and Nexus 6 9 tablet still run stock-Android and the bootloaders are still easy to unlock, so you can flash whatever you want on it, but they are not cheap. The Nexus 6, later to be released this year in the Netherlands, costs as much as many other high-end phones and the Nexus 9 comes with its retail price of 399 euros on the side of tablets like the iPad Mini 3 from Apple.

There is still more different on the new Nexus tablet. He is with a screen of 8.9 “considerably larger than the two generations Nexus 7 we were presented with in recent years, and in addition, Google has chosen a. 4: 3 ratio, as with the iPad is Under the Hood it even more interesting, with the 64bit version of the Nvidia Tegra K1, the first high-end 64bit processor in an Android device.

The Nexus 9 created by Google and HTC, and of the latter, we recently received a test sample. Since then we have been busy trying to see if this Nexus 9 is good enough to justify Google’s new pricing strategy.
