Check your calendars, folks — it’s November 3rd! That means today is the day Google is set to ship out all those Nexus 9 pre-orders they received late last month. Your email should be loaded with shipping information and your doorstep will soon be loaded with the 9-inch pure Android tablet.
For those who didn’t get a chance to pre-order? Well, Google has more units in stock right now. You can order a 16GB ($399) or 32GB ($479) WiFi-only model today (in black or white, but not tan) and have it leave the warehouse within two business days. Unfortunately the LTE model is still unavailable so if you were planning to order that one then you’ll have to wait a while longer.
The Nexus 9 is the biggest tablet Google has launched since the Samsung-made Nexus 10. Its 8.9-inch display boasts a 2048 x 1536 resolution and is actually situated in the 4:3 aspect ratio. That’s somewhat atypical for a non-Apple tablet these days, but it shouldn’t be much of an issue to get used to.
Under the hood is NVIDIA’s 64-bit Tegra K1 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz, an 8 megapixel camera, a 6,700mAh battery and more. It’ll be the first device to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box so you’ll have immediate access to all the goodness that comes with. Let us know if you’re expecting a shipment to arrive today, and if not then let us know if you’ll be ordering a Nexus 9 in the near future!
