HTC is selling the Nexus 9 at crazy low prices
posted by Michael H. / Nov 03, 2015, 9:11 AM
It should be noted right off the bat that supplies seem to be going quickly. HTC is already listing the 16GB variants of the Nexus 9 as "Out of Stock" (they had been selling for $239.40). So, that means, you'll have the choice between $287.40 for a 32GB Wi-Fi only model or $359.40 for a 32GB LTE model. The Wi-Fi only is a choice between black or white, but the LTE only comes in white.
These are still some killer prices, because the 32GB Wi-Fi model sells for $479 in the Google Store or $370 through Amazon, while the LTE model would normally run you $599 through Google or $499 through Amazon. Of course, as noted, stock is already disappearing, so while the sale technically runs until 11:59 PM PT on Wednesday, November 4 (tomorrow), there's no guarantee supplies will last that long.

It's not selling, wrong screen ratio, boring design, not enough internal storage. Google made a mistake going with HTC. The Nexus 9 seems to be on sale somewhere every other week.

All the complaints you listed are Google's fault, not HTCs.

If the Nexus 9 had had either a bigger (10" or more) or smaller (8.4" or less) screen and either expandable storage or a 128GB option, I would have purchased one in a heartbeat. But the odd size and limited storage just wouldn't work for me, despite my strong inclination towards Nexus devices. At one point I had a Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10, but I transitioned to a Note 4, Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5 in part because they allow expandable storage in addition to best in class displays. Google's decision to shun expandable storage and at the same time not offer larger storage options is costing them customers. Cloud access just isn't reliable enough yet.

Nothing but a scam. They put 3 on sale and when those sell they say they're out of stock... After the sale is over they suddenly have stock again.

It was and is a crap. The benchmark scores cannot be trusted at all since the K1 Denver is in fact an emulator, not a native ARM chip, hence the compatibility issues steadily crashing the system in addition to the annoying lags here and there. You can google for "Transmeta" for further details of a cheating company going down and reincarnated as K1 Denver by nVidia. No one makes money with Android™

I'd consider it if Android wasn't hiccuping this week and last, to the point I just copied everything from Drive's Docs (which is the Titanic right now) to Word and Dropbox (sigh). Google is so stretched thin from Alphabet to new phones and marshmallow, it seems like everything is fraying at its seams.

Google should definitely consider using micro sd again with the Nexus, this is what's keeping me away for considering a nexus tablet, it's great and all but storage expansion is a necessity for me, and now that marshmallow has this ability to use micro sd for app installation they should definitely use it on the next generation of Nexus
