Nexus 9 due October 15, report says

As we get closer to the time Google announces Android L, more and more rumors and reports come out about the upcoming Nexus devices, or the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. Earlier this morning we reported about an article from WSJ confirming rumors of the Nexus 6. A couple of days ago, an HTC rep confirmed that the Nexus 9 exists and is coming. Now, we seem to have some details about a possible announcement and launch date for the Nexus 9 (and presumably the Nexus 6 and Android L as well).

Bright side of news on Thursday reported that their sources confirm that the Nexus 9 will be announced this month, available for pre-order on October 15th, and then available (and most likely shipped) on November 3. They also confirm (as previously thought) that it will be using a NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC. However, it isn’t clear if they will use the regular chip seen in other devices, or if it will be a new 64-bit version.

They also confirm that it will cost $399, which they say makes it a more premium device since the Nexus 7 is cheaper at $229. However, if you recall the Nexus 10 released starting at $399, and was considered cheap for its size and features. Considering a Nexus 9 would be closer to that, it makes sense to me. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.

The other interesting part of the report is it claims that the Nexus 9 will not be exclusive to the Play Store, but will be sold to many other retailers. This indeed would be an interesting move on Google’s part, and would mean they are more serious about selling devices this time around.

Stay tuned for more updates about the Nexus devices.

What do you think about a $399 price tag on a 9″ tablet? Too much for a Nexus device, or just about right?
