The Google Nexus 9 is hailed to be one of the best tablets of 2014 with its high-end specs and even made it into CNET’s list of the best tablets of 2014. The 8.9 inch Nexus 9 depends on its powerful mobile processor and the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system to impress users instead of other not-quite-necessary fancy features such as fingerprint sensors, swiveling cameras, and docked keyboards.
Marques Brownless checks out the Android tablet and lets you in on the highs and the lows of the tablet.
Co-developed by Google and HTC, Marques explained that the pricing of the Nexus 9 (US$399 for the 16GB tablet) seemed a bit too pricey because it just feels like a “slightly larger Nexus 7” and the Nexus 7 is known for its affordable price (currently about US$229).
However, he does recommend it for people who wants to buy it for the software experience. And as he puts it, “If you gotta have a Nexus, you gotta have a Nexus.”
