It's been almost a month since Google Nexus 9 pre-order service went live in India and now a report has surfaced online that the delivery of the HTC device will soon begin in the Subcontinent.
Technology website, MakTechBlog while leafing through Zauba.com, an Indian based export-import logistic database has stumbled upon the manifests of Nexus 9 import details.
According to the archives, HTC Nexus 9 shipments numbering more than 2000 units have arrived in New Delhi (India) from Taiwan on 15 November, hinting that the flagship Google slate will soon be delivered to the consumers, who booked the device last month.
This report comes as a relief to many Indian fans as Nexus 9 was supposed to be released last week, but got delayed for unknown reasons.
Earlier today (18 November), flagship Nexus 6 pre-order service went live in India. Motorola's exclusive e-commerce partner, Flipkart is offering exclusive launch day offers worth ₹13,600 including smartphone exchange deals, gift vouchers on e-books and cash-back on EMI schemes.
For the uninitiated, HTC Nexus 9 flaunts 8.9-inch QXGA (2048x1536p) IPS LCD screen and comes packed with 64-bit 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.
