The Google Nexus 9 Wi-Fi + LTE 32 GB variant, which was announced along with the other variant of Nexus 9 in October last year, was finally launched in India today and will be available online at Amazon for a price of Rs. 43, 073. The company had only launched the 16 GB Wi-fi model in India up until now, which is selling at Rs. 28,699 on Amazon. Nexus 9 is being manufactured by HTC.
As of now, the 32GB variant comes in only Indigo black colour. It is interesting to note that the specific Tablet is available only on Amazon and the Indian website of Google Play still lists the device as coming soon.
Nexus 9 runs on Android OS, v5.0 (Lollipop) and is powered by a Dual Core 2.3Ghz Denver processor. It consists of a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 chipset and Kepler DX1 GPU for better performance. It has 2 GB of RAM, an 8MP rear and a 1.6 MP front camera. Nexus 9 is one of the first tablets running on Android Lolipop and since Google is behind the Nexus 9, be rest assured that it will be receiving updates before any other tablet in the market.
The 16 GB variant has received favorable reviews from the market and there’s no doubt that people will be eagerly waiting to get their hands on the 32 GB version too. Although it remains to be seen, how the LTE compatible feature will be received in India considering that only two mobile operators, Airtel and Aircel, have started providing 4G services in limited circles highlighting that 4G connectivity is still in a very nascent stage in the country.
