Here's how you can purchase the Nexus 9 for $30 off
posted by Alan F. / Dec 28, 2014, 11:20 AM
Best Buy still has a small number of tablets available for online ordering, and shipping is free. So you can order the Nexus 9 from the warmth of your home, and still take advantage of the discount.
If you live in Canada, or around the Canadian border, Best Buy will sell you the tablet with the same discount, inside its physical stores. Or, you can try the Future Shop. The latter also has a $30 discount on the HTC produced slabs, although it is no longer offering the deal online.

Yikes, it sucks. What do I expect from nVidia? Their chips are only good on paper and this time in synthetic benchmarks. While the overall performance isn't that bad, it just doesn't live up to what the benchmark results suggest, and it's extremely sluggish from time to time which was the deal breaker for me. Glad I returned mine not so long ago. Stay away people. The K1 Denver isn't native to ARM, but runs an emulator that occasionally causes huge hiccups that seriously harm the UX. Remember Transmeta's Crusoe? Denver is a reincarnation of this cursed design that miserably failed. nVidia will go bust just like Transmeta did, and you won't get any update just like the GNex.

Geekbench puts it on par with i5 520 roughly, I don't see any other non x86 chip there at all. I just benched my Shield, similar result, no other Arm product even close. Gfx bench puts it into high end iPads an Surface Pro 3 heels. After update to 501, it smokes all else on market on Android side of things period. Nvidia may a couple software bugs to iron out with google but its top dog right now. You speak an blame hardware when software was issue, troll away.

i have a windows 8.1 tablet, nexus 7, ipad mini3 retna. I played with the nexus 9, its not worth $400. Its nice but should be priced in the range of $300. FYI, the nexus 7 cost $219 Dell Venue Pro 8.1 cost $199 Ipad Mini 3 retna, free from work. My iPad is a toy, the dell hardly gets used, but its a great win8.1 tablet, and i use the f out of my nexus 7. There is a reason htc had a fire sale on the nexus 9, three weeks ago for $100 off, they priced themselves out of the market. AND DONT GET ME STARTED ON THE NEXUS 6... Thanks for the non-existant google phone, that has been out of stock on googles site for over a month.

Don't trash k1. If you don't like nexus 9,that's ok. But also try nvidia shield. It is much worth it than nexus 9.

Why are there so many people among Android users who simply cannot remain silent and absolutely have to prove their ignorance? The K1 on Shield is a completely different architecture to the K1 on Nexus 9.

This was a terrible tablet. It was fat and heavy and the buttons were flushed. Really poor blacks a contrast. I would have loved a Nexus 10 with an upgraded GPU and CPU but Google and/or HTC screwed this up in so many ways. Probably HTC.
