Only "several hundred" Google Nexus 9 tablets were sold yesterday at half the price, more might be offered soon
Yesterday, HTC launched a promotion called Hot Deals, which offered US customers the chance to buy the brand new Nexus 9 tablet for only $199 (a 50% discount from the regular $399 price). Unfortunately, only a relatively small number of customers managed to snag a Nexus 9 at that price, and we now know why.

Today, HTC America President Jason Mackenzie said that only “several hundred” Nexus 9 units were included in the offer. Moreover, he acknowledged that the HTC website (where the promotion was hosted) “did not function properly”, thus frustrating many of those who wanted to buy a $199 Nexus 9. HTC is currently fixing the issues, and is committed to offering a seamless experience in the future. Speaking of which, the Hot Deals promotion will continue each Tuesday in the weeks to come (eight weeks in total). The Nexus 9 may be part of the deal again, but, if not, there will surely be other HTC devices offered at discounted prices.

Here’s Jason Mackenzie full letter regarding yesterday’s misadventures:
