Android tablets are a dime a dozen these days, but there are only a few that are really worth your time and money. Google is hoping that the new Nexus 9 is one of them. The $400 Android tablet has an unconventional 8.9-inch 1536 x 2048 display with a 4:3 aspect ratio that’s closer to that of an iPad than the 16:9 aspect ratio we’ve traditionally seen on Nexus tablets. Google is also testing the water with a Nvidia’s 64-bit Tegra K1 chip since Android 5.0 includes native 64-bit support.
The Nexus 9 will make its official retail debut on November 3, but our review unit showed up a few days early. The software build on the Nexus 9 we have still isn’t final, so we thought we’d share a quick unboxing video for now. Expect our full review in the next week or two.
