First Nexus 9 (with keyboard cover) hands-on photos appear
Google unveiled its 2014 addition to the Nexus tablet family - the Nexus 9, a device made in collaboration with HTC, and boasting the signature BoomSound dual front speakers. 

The Nexus 9 is also the first Android Lollipop device to go on sale, and it also scores a first with the 64-bit Nvidia Tegra K1 chip.

However, we still haven’t seen any real-life images of the Nexus 9. Google quietly unveiled the tablet via a blog post yesterday, without holding an event for the press to see the new devices.

Luckily, some have already gotten their hands on the an early version of the Nexus 9, and hands-on images of Google’s new tablet have surfaced. You can get to see the fairly slim profile, the metal frame and matte plastic back cover with a Nexus 5-like look, and the large logo of the series right in the middle.

The Nexus 9 goes on pre-order on October 17th on the Google Play Store, and you’ll be able to buy it in retail stores on November 3rd. Are you getting one?

Leave your card number and PIN here. I'll safely pass on your details to Google.

Like it or not 4:3 ratio is better as it's apps friendly and better browsing experience. Differentiate more apart from big phablet to avoid any cannibalize

The audio jack, camera, LED flash and microphone holes all bunched up on one corner is messy. Not liking that.
