Google Nexus 9 LTE Android tablet hits T-Mobile

After a very short delay T-Mobile launches this slate, thus becoming the first U.S. carrier to offer the HTC-built LTE Nexus 9.

T-Mobile had plans to launch the Nexus 9 tablet in early December, but they announced a delay. While the carrier's message revealed that this 9-inch Android slate would go on sale "on a date to be determined," it seems T-Mobile users are quite lucky after all. Google Nexus 9 arrives just a few days off schedule and makes T-Mobile the first US carrier to add it to the portfolio.

This slate is made by HTC and has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: 2.3 GHz 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage
  • Display: 8.9-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen with 1,536X2,048 pixels and 281 ppi
  • Cameras: 1.6 MP front, 8 MP back with autofocus, HDR, geotagging, and LED flash
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n with WiFi Direct and hotspot, Bluetooth 4.1 with A2DP and apt-X, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, micro USB 2.0
  • Operating System: Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.96 pounds; 8.09X6.05X0.31 inches
  • Battery/Autonomy: Lithium-polymer 6700 mAh, non-removable; up to 8.5 hours mixed use

This 32 GB 4G LTE version of Nexus 9 has a full retail price of $599.76 USD, but can be acquired from T-Mobile for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $24.99 USD each. Various offers can be purchased with the tablet as well, such as Free Data for Life (200 MB of free data each month as long as the customer stays with T-Mobile) or the Simple Choice voice plan.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
