Nexus 9 – Google’s latest android tablet

Earlier today Google released their new Nexus branded devices. They released their Nexus 9 along with the Nexus 6 phone and the first device with Android TV, the Nexus Player! The next update to the Android operating system, Android “L” has been confirmed to be “Lollipop”.

Just like the Nexus 6, The Nexus 9 is nothing like it’s predecessor. Has rumored the Nexus 9 will be manufactured by HTC!  The tablet has a  almost 9″ (8.9″) display with a 2048 by 1536 QXGA  display with a 4:3 aspect ratio and Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3. The Nexus 9 is rocking an NVIDIA Tegra K1 Dual Denver at 2.3GHz, the Tegra K1 is a 64-bit ready processor and along with Android “L” or “Lollipop” which now also supports 64-bit makes the Nexus 9 the first Android device to come with both hardware and software supporting 64-bit. Nexus 9 is still not a “true” 64-bit device because, It needs a least 3GBs of R.A.M. to be considered 64-bit device.  The GPU on the Nexus 9 is also impressive with a 192-core Kepler GPU! Even though you should never take pictures on your tablet the Nexus 9 has a 8 Megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and LED flash. The front facing camera is only 1.6 Megapixels. The Nexus 9 supports 802.11ac 2×2 (MIMO) Wi-Fi along with NFC and Bluetooth 4.1. The LTE version of the Nexus 9 supports the following bands:

Quad-band GSM, CDMA, Penta-band HSPA, LTE
