If you crave this week’s biggest Android announcement, the HTC Nexus 9 tablet, you may as well preorder it through Google Play. The product has already gone up for preorder on Amazon.com and now you can get it from the Play Store with configuration limits.

HTC-Nexus-9-3

You can only find the 16 GB WiFi model in black and white and the 32 GB WiFi model in black and white. The Sand model and LTE models are only shown as “Coming Soon”. As far as prices go, there’s a tag of $399 for the 16 GB Nexus 9, while the 32 GB unit goes for $479. The product is scheduled for in store release and shipping on November 3rd, so there’s a bit of waiting to do here.

For the money mentioned above you get a 425 gram slate, with an 8.9 inch 2048 x 1536 pixel display and the 64 bit dual core 2.3 GHz Nvidia Tegra K1 processor. There’s Android 5.0 Lollipop as the OS, 16 or 32 GB of storage, 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and HSPA+/LTE connectivity in the cellular version. At the back there’s an 8 MP camera and upfront a 1.6 MP one. This device also stands out through BoomSound speakers at the front and it has a 6700 mAh battery.
