You’ve been waiting for it, and now it’s here. The Nexus 9 has arrived, and is branded with a very small HTC logo at the bottom. All the rumors, all the chatter, it was all true. In addition to the Nexus 9, we are also getting the Nexus 6, a VERY Motorola product. In fact, it looks like a bigger Moto X, which is exactly what we’d heard it would be. As if that weren’t enough, a Nexus set-top box is also seeing the light of day.
The Nexus 9 has brushed metal sides and that 8.9-inch screen we previously heard would come with it. There’s nothing new, spec-wise, from what has been reported prior to today.
The Nexus 6 is a Google collaboration with Motorola, and as we said — looks like a big-‘ol Moto X. You’re looking for specs, but we’ve already told you about them. A 6-inch screen and 13MP camera rule the day, here (see? A big Moto X!).
The Nexus Player is a bit of a shock, though. In collaboration with Asus, Google is releasing the first official Android TV box. Google says it will offer streaming movies, music, and videos — just as you’d expect it would. The coolest part here is that you can stream your phone or tablet games to the TV. Google is cobbling in a gamepad, and if you don’t have a Chromecast, it’s Google Cast ready.
The Nexus 6 and 9 come with Android L, too. The Nexus 9 tablet and Nexus Player will be available for pre-order October 17, and will arrive in-store November 3. The Nexus 6 comes available for pre-order later this month.
The Nexus 6 will come unlocked via the Play Store, but will also be made available on all four major carriers stateside. Google isn’t yet sharing when the carriers will have the device.
