New Google Chromecast passes through FCC, but you likely won't spot anything new

24

What appears to be a new model of Google's Chromecast has been spotted passing through FCC, but unfortunately it's a filing that will fail to excite many holding off for 5GHz Wi-Fi support and other features.

Nexus 9 goes up for pre-order on Amazon a day early, $399 and shipping Nov. 3

153
HTC Nexus 9

We knew the Nexus 9 would go up for pre-order starting tomorrow, but it seems Amazon has pushed the button early and opened up pre-orders today at $399. That'll get you the Wifi model with 16GB of storage in either black or white, and you bump up to 32GB of storage for a total of $479. That of course leaves the LTE model and "sand" color options yet to be released, at least on Amazon.

The Nexus 9s pre-ordered from Amazon will be shipped out on November 3rd, sadly, but knowing that you have your money down on one so you can get it as soon as possible can be a nice feeling to have. If you want to pull the trigger, hit the Amazon link below. You can always wait for the "official" pre-order day tomorrow when it's set to hit the Play Store as well.
