Nexus 9 video preview makes the tablet look even more stunning than the renders

The new Nexus 9 tablet, made by HTC, is shaping up to be Google's poster boy for Android Lollipop for a while, as it is currently the only device on the market with Android 5.0, and a 64-bit chipset, the Tegra K1, capable to take full advantage of the new compiler that comes with the latest iteration of Google's mobile OS. It is also clad in brushed metal, as any top-shelf flagship device made by HTC is, and sports the company's signature BoomSound stereo speakers, plus a gorgeous QXGA (2048x1536 pixels) display.

If you have been clamoring to see more of the newest Android tablet flagship, apart from the press renders, here's a short video preview below. Surprisingly, the tablet looks even better in person than the official renders do it justice. It looks sleek, elegant, and comfortable to use, which, adding to the great specs sheet could mean that your $399 would be well-spent on one, so we can't wait to get the slate, and put it through the review paces ourselves.

The Nexus 9 tablet will be available for preorder on October 17, and will hit the shelves very soon after that, on November 3rd. As for the pricing, Nexus 9 comes in a choice of three colors, and you can get one of the following versions: a 16 GB Wi-Fi model for $399, a 32 GB one for $479, and a 4G LTE-equipped 32 GB version for $599. In the US, you'll be able to buy the Nexus 9 on the Google Play Store, Amazon, Best Buy, Staples, Walmart, and others. T-Mobile will be selling the cellular version, with availability starting on November 12th.
