Along with the Nexus Player, which disappointed, Google’s Nexus 9 was also recently released and reviewed. It’s been described as having an OK display; good but not jaw dropping performance; above average speakers; nice feel but with small, noticeable flaws; and generally not something that beats the iPad given its $400 price. Lollipop is awesome as expected.
That’s all well and good, but there are two things about the Nexus 9 I was particularly interested in from an industry point of view:
- The Nexus 9’s size and weight
- Its dedicated keyboard cover
Is the 9-inch display the best of two worlds, or the worst? Is the Nexus 9 an appreciably good productivity device?
