Nexus 9 review

Nexus 9 review

Meet Google's new "premium" tablet — the HTC-built, NVIDIA-powered Nexus 9. We've been waiting for a new tablet as a replacement for the Nexus 10 for quite a while, and with the removal of all traces of the Nexus 7 from Google's online store, it appears that the Nexus 9 is the reference tablet, consumer tablet, and tinkerer's tablet that Google wants to deliver.

We've had it here for a bit. We hesitated to run a review right away, as Google dropped quite the update on everyone at the last minute. We knew it would change some of the things we were seeing, so we gave it a few extra days. That's how we do things here, and in this case it makes a *really* big difference.
