Nexus devices are designed to showcase new versions of the Android operating system (OS), and the HTC Nexus 9 tablet is no different.
Made specifically for Android 5.0 – a.k.a. Lollipop – the Nexus 9 is the perfect size, shape and style to make the most of Google's latest operating system, and packs desktop-like processing power to run it. Plus, it'll always be the first device to receive Lollipop updates, keeping you on the cutting edge of Android.
Like the Nexus 7 before it, HTC's Nexus 9 is the new must-have tablet for Google fans, whether they plan to use it for work, play or anything in between.
The perfect size for pretty much everything
Mid-size tablets are often too big for some tasks and too small for others, but the Nexus 9 is just right for just about everything. Less than 8 mm thick and weighing not even a pound, it's surprisingly light and easy to hold with just one hand. Yet its capacious 8.9-inch IPS LCD offers loads of space for work and play, whether you’re watching movies, browsing media-rich Web pages or editing a document.
Living la vida Lollipop
Google's latest OS is loaded with tantalizing interface enhancements, including beautiful 3D ripple effects and intuitive voice commands. It also packs loads of energy-saving upgrades to conserve juice for apps that really need it, yet the smart new always-on display (while in low-power state) means you can still see notifications at a glance. You can even set up your new Lollipop tablet via NFC simply by tapping it against another Lollipop device.
Phenomenal desktop power in an itty-bitty processor
The Nexus 9's small but mighty 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor gives you all the power of the tower sitting on the desk in your den. You can whip through email and explore the Web as quickly as you can tap out terms, then seamlessly switch to processor-intensive entertainment – such as console-quality games and high-definition movies – without missing a beat.
Complete your Nexus 9 with a clever cover
The Nexus 9's multi-segmented magnetic cover is as smart as they come. Fold back one corner to reveal the 8-MP rear-camera lens and automatically trigger the camera app, giving you a better chance of capitalizing on short-lived photo opportunities. Fold back two corners and you have a stand that can be easily adjusted to two different viewing angles.
No portable speakers? No problem!
HTC BoomSound speaker technology pumps out surprisingly powerful and detailed two-channel sound from a pair of front-facing drivers. Smooth and distortion-free, BoomSound stereo delivers such a rich listening experience that you may no longer need your portable speakers.
