    Way too expensive. Is google trying to match ipad prices? 80 bucks more for the 32GB version. U gotta be kidding. That´s only a couple of bucks more in the real world. And were are the 64GB and 128GB versions since there isn´t a card slot? Why no card slot with such meagre storage space. I don´t get it.

  • I’m sure the Nexus 9 tablet has some great features but I fail to understand why Google is in love with such wide bezels – as they were with the Nexus 7. They make the tablet look ugly and cumbersome, old fashioned – next to tablets with narrow bezels. Maybe there is some advantage to wide bezels but i fail to see what it could be.
