The Nexus 9 has just gone live on the Australian Google Play store. The tablet has replaced both the Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 tablets which are no longer available.
The Nexus 9 is available in available in 16GB or 32GB options but only in Wi-Fi, with the LTE option still greyed out. There are two colour options available as expected – Indigo Black and Lunar White, with the Sand coloured option expected to arrive later this year.
Pricing wise the Nexus 9 isn’t cheap
The LTE Version of the Nexus 9 is now showing pricing on the Google Play Australia page, although it’s still not available to pre-order with the tablet expected to go on-sale later this year. The LTE version is only available in Black and will cost $719 + shipping.
The tablet is due to leave the warehouse in 2-3 weeks, with only one option available for delivery – International Priority (2-7 business days) – which will cost an additional $19.95 on top.
The Nexus 9 lists only one accessory, the Nexus 9 Cover – but it’s not yet available to order, with the status listed as ‘Coming Soon’ The Polyurethane cover will be available in three colours – Mint Indigo, Lime Stone and standard Black.
The case has an ‘Origami style’ to it allowing you to fold it in to position and prop up your tablet to watch videos, or flatter to allow for typing. It can even fold a corner down to allow for quick access to the camera.
Curiously a fourth Nexus 9 Polyurethane cover option is mentioned in the description: Coral Amethyst in the description but there’s no sign of it on the site. The Google Play description also mentions leather cover options – Black Leather and Natural Leather – but again, there’s no sign of them.
