Back in December Google announced the Nexus 9 with Android 5.0 Lollipop, and since then users have patiently been waiting to get their hands on the 32GB LTE variant of the device.
Today, the 32GB LTE variant of the Google Nexus 9 has been made available in India. The tablet comes in at a hefty price of Rs. 43,073, and you can pick up the device directly from Amazon.in.
The 8.9-inch LCD screen packs 2048 x 1536 pixels which provides 287 pixels per inch. The device is stuffed with a heavy 6,700mAh li-ion battery and ships in two storage options - 16GB or 32GB.
The tablet is powered by Nvidia's new monster Tegra K1 chip. It's running off 64-bit architecture and clocks in at 2.3GHz. Also on-board is a Kepler DX1 GPU for added graphical heft, with 2GB of RAM in tow. It also ships with Android Lollipop out of the box.
At 8.9in it's almost exactly half way between the 7.9in iPad mini and 9.7in iPad Air. More than that, it has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which deviates from the 16:9 form factor of previous Nexus tablets.
The premium tablet even comes with an 8MP rear-facing camera, with a 1.6MP selfie shooter. The Nexus 9 also comes with HTC's award winning front-facing BoomSound speakers.
The Google Nexus 9 is a premium device, but the question is whether this monster Android tablet is a better choice than an iPad Air 2.
