The Nexus 9 is due to go up for pre-order on Google Play in the early hours of tomorrow morning, in the US at least, we’re still unsure about Australian availability. If you’re really wanting to be sure of securing a Nexus 9 tablet as soon as possible then you may want to head over to Amazon where pre-orders for the Nexus 9 are now being accepted and they ship directly to Australia.
Amazon US is offering both the 16GB and 32GB models of the Nexus 9 in Wi-Fi only at this stage. Colour options are Indigo Black, and Lunar White, but there’s no sign of the ‘Sand’ coloured tablet which Google advised would come along later this year. Nor is there any sign of the 32GB LTE version of the tablet on the US site, it is however up on the Amazon Germany page. At this stage, it may be wise to put the brakes on any orders as LTE bands for the tablet have not been confirmed and the specs on the Amazon site do not include them.
Pricing wise, the tablet is listed at the prices we saw listed yesterday (except the LTE which is selling for €569,00:
|Nexus 9||Variant||US Price||Est. AU price|
These prices of course do not include shipping and coming from the US it will be a fair addition. There’s three options being offered for shipping on the Nexus 9:
|Shipping type||US$||Est. AU price|
|AmazonGlobal Standard Shipping (averages 9-12 days)||$7.98||$9.09|
|AmazonGlobal Expedited Shipping (averages 7-11 business days)||$10.98||$12.51|
|AmazonGlobal Priority Shipping (averages 2-5 days)||$35.98||$40.99|
With Amazon beginning shipping the tablets out on the 3rd of November, if you’re willing to pay extra you may get your tablet by around the 5-10th of November. Of course the best option will be to wait and see if the Nexus 9 appears on the Google Play store here in Australia overnight.
Are you ordering the Nexus 9 in Wi-Fi or waiting for the LTE version?
