Nexus 9 LTE will land on T-Mobile first, Google Play later

Looking for a Nexus 9 LTE? If you’re going to Google Play, you might be out of luck. The tablet is currently listed as “coming soon” via Google’s official device sales portal, but T-Mobile is here to rescue us from a tablet-less world. Starting today, T-Mobile will be selling the Nexus 9 LTE from their online “deals” site, The Underground. The Nexus 9 LTE isn’t cheap — it starts at $599 — but it’s really your only option if you want the connected Nexus tablet in time for the holidays.

T-Mobile delays Nexus 9 launch indefinitely

T-Mobile sure does love Google. Even their outspoken CEO John Legere is hard-pressed to find something bad to say about the search giant, especially when it comes to their Nexus products. After being forced to push back the launch of Google’s Nexus 6 by a week, T-Mobile is once again having issues getting Nexus devices.

Cyber Monday is a day meant for online deals from around the Internet. A day when you can shop without ever leaving home, and get things not available in stores at a discount. Like they did last week, IBM has released their user stats for Cyber Monday shopping. Unlike black Friday, the disparity between Android and iOS wasn’t even close, with iOS users outpacing Android owner purchases 4:1. Online sales were up 8.5% over 2013, too, with mobile traffic accounting for nearly half of all online browsing.

A Motorola tablet is coming, says Lenovo CEO

A Motorola tablet is coming, says Lenovo CEO

Did you own a Motorola Xyboard? the DROID tablets were among the early contenders for Android in the larger screen realm, and like most other Android tablets of the time, were fairly terrible. That was more an Android failure (this was pre Honeycomb, so Gingerbread. Gross.) than Motorola’s, and based on pure hardware, the Xyboard wasn’t so bad.

Google to announce Nexus 9 tomorrow, launch in November

Hey, how about that Nexus 9, huh? Sounds exciting, right? A Nexus tablet, 8.9-inch screen, and running the latest and greatest version of Android. Codenamed Volantis (which might just be some Game of Thrones stuff for you!), the Nexus 9 is set for release very soon. If the latest report from Forbes is to be believed, we’ll see that big, bad Nexus tablet tomorrow, maybe even alongside the Nexus 6. If a 6-inch phone and/or 9-inch tablet don’t excite you, you might want to rush to the Play Store now before existing products disappear.

HTC “Flounder”, possibly the Nexus 9, passes WiFi certification

The Android tablet fans have been waiting for may have just cleared WiFi certification. An HTC tablet, going by the codename “Flounder”, quietly passed through the WiFi certification board earlier this month. Though we don’t get a glimpse of what specs this one has under the screen, it tells us enough to make us believe even more your Nexus 10 replacement is an HTC device — and won’t have a 10-inch screen.
