LTE connected and unlocked Nexus 9 available in Google Play, 32GB, $599
While Google’s newest pure Android powered slate has been available for a little while now, we have been waiting to see when an LTE enabled Nexus 9 would land, and where it would land. Not surprisingly, T-Mobile is out of the gate with a connected Nexus 9, and it can be ordered now on an installment plan or for the retail price of $599.

If you do not mind waiting a few days, you can order the Nexus 9 through Google Play directly now, sans any T-Mobile SIM starter kit, for the same retail price, $599.

Orders placed on Google Play will ship by December 19, which cuts things really close if you want it as a Christmas present. The LTE connected tablet is available in 32GB and black only. The tablet is unlocked, so you can insert your SIM from another carrier if you wish. Based on the FCC filing we told you about last month, and the Qualcomm Gobi modem inside, this connected Nexus 9 should work on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint as well.

According to Google’s specifications, the LTE connected Nexus 9 still makes good use of its battery capacity, claiming a full 8.5 hours of LTE browsing, only one hour less than on Wi-Fi, and it has the same 30 day standby time. The LTE model only adds 10 grams of weight over the original spec.

The Nexus 9 is worth considering if you have been thinking about a semi-compact, but not necessarily mini-sized tablet. With 32GB, LTE, and a cost of $599, the Nexus 9 is priced below a 16GB data connected iPad Air 2, but a little more than a 16GB connected iPad mini 3. Packing Android Lollipop 5.0, solid internals, and great battery life, the Nexus 9 is worthy to have on a holiday shopping list.
