Amazon has already begun taking pre-orders for Google’s new Nexus 9 tablet ahead of its November 3 launch, revealing for the first time the price structure for those in the United Kingdom. As expected, the device isn’t as cheap as the Nexus 7, but it’s certainly not bad at £319 (approx. $513).
Of course, that price applies to the 16GB Wi-Fi model. There’s also a 32GB Wi-Fi model that will cost you £399 (approx. $642), and a 32GB Wi-Fi + LTE model that will cost you £459 (approx. $738). All three are available to pre-order now, and shipping starts on launch day.
Amazon U.K. — like Amazon U.S. — is currently offering the Nexus 9 in black and white only, with no sign of the sand model for the time being. That’s likely to change at some point, but it may not happen before the device goes on sale next month, so that’s worth bearing in mind if you’re adamant you want that unique color scheme.
Aside from their storage and connectivity differences, all three Nexus 9 tablets feature 8.9-inch displays with a 2048×1440 resolution, 2GB of RAM, and NVIDIA’s latest Tegra K1 processor. Like previous Nexus devices, however, there is no microSD card slot, so be sure you choose enough storage when buying the device because you cannot add to it later.
Will you be picking up a Nexus 9 or one of Apple’s new iPads instead?
