It's been a little over four months since the Google Nexus 9 Wi-Fi only model set foot in India. Now the cellular model has finally made its way into the market.
Amazon India has begun selling HTC's Google Nexus 9 LTE model (with 32GB memory) for ₹43,073. Even the official Google Play store has listed the device for ₹44,900 with a 'Coming soon' tag with no mention of any specific release date time-frame.
To refresh the mind, Nexus 9 sports an 8.9-inch QXGA (2048x1536p) IPS LCD screen and comes packed with 64-bit class Nvidia Tegra K1 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB inbuilt memory, 8.0-megapixel main camera, a 1.6-megapixel front-camera, and a 6700 mAh battery.
HTC's Google Nexus 9 is a premium device and it will be competing with the popular metal-clad Apple iPad Air 2 series and Samsung's flagship Tab S series slates in the Indian market.
