This is the Nexus 9 keyboard cover

Nexus 9 keyboard cover

The new Nexus 9 comes with with a couple of covers available. There's a fairly standard basic cover, which protects just the front of the 8.9-inch tablet and stays put with thanks to the magic of magnets. But the one that's definitely piqued our interest is the keyboard cover. With it you'll get five rows of keys, including a dedicated number row.

And, yes, those are dedicated home (kind of looks like an @ symbol if you're blind like me) and emoji buttons on the bottom row, next to the arrow keys.

Google announces the new Nexus 9 tablet from HTC!

Nexus 9

Google today officially announced the Nexus 9 tablet, and along with it the return of manufacturer HTC to the Nexus fold. This is the Taiwanese manufacturer's first Nexus device since the Nexus One started things in January 2010, and it's HTC's first tablet since the failed 7-inch Flyer in early 2011, and the even more failed Jet after that.

Along with the new Nexus 6 smartphone, the Nexus 9 will be among the first devices to run production builds of Android 5.0 Lollipop, which has been in developer preview status since this summer. (And it'll have the double-tap-to-wake feature, which is interesting.)

More: See our full Nexus 9 specs!

As was widely expected, and teased in a bit of a leak recently, we're looking at a larger, more square design this time around. Same Nexus logo on the back, and with the camera and flash tucked up in the top-left corner. The front-facing camera is centered on the front of the display. There's a microUSB port on the bottom for charging.

Also of note is that the Nexus 9 marks a return to the NVIDIA Tegra chipset, with a the powerful K1 on the inside. It's got either 16 or 32GB of on-board storage for the Wifi-only model and the LTE model comes with 32GB standard.

The Nexus 9 starts at $399 and will be available for perorder Oct. 17, and in stores Nov. 3.

We've got lots more on the Nexus 9 on the way. Stay tuned.

Hands-on with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2

Another multi-mode tablet in two different sizes from Lenovo

Alongside the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, Lenovo today also announced the Yoga Tablet 2 in both 8- and 10-inch sizes. Despite losing the Pro from the name, the Tablet 2 actually shares a lot in common with its bigger brother. The overall design is identical, with the same kickstand here with the same, new, hang mode.

The internals are also pretty well matched to the Pro, with the same CPU and same amount of RAM, though onboard storage is less at 16GB on both the 8- and 10-inch versions. The displays aren't quite as high-resolution, but they are still pretty nice. Both have a 1920x1200 display, which on the 8-inch in particular looks pretty sharp.
