HTC And Google Introduce Nexus 9
HTC today announces the launch of the very first Android Lollipop tablet, the Nexus 9. The result of a close collaboration between HTC and Google, the Nexus 9 fuses HTC’s cutting-edge technology and innovation heritage in premium design with Google’s excellence in intuitive software, for a premium tablet experience.
“Today, HTC is once again changing the way that people think about technology,” said Peter Chou, CEO, HTC Corporation. “Back in 1997, we allowed people to leave their laptops at home in favor of powerful, pocket-sized smartphone computing. Today we are taking a similar leap forward. Combining incredible hardware with unrivaled software, HTC is reinventing the way we think about imaging. We are taking you out from behind the viewfinder and putting you back where you belong, at the heart of the action.”

Precision Design And Performance
Encased in a brushed aluminum frame that seamlessly connects the screen to a soft-grip back, the Nexus 9 is both sleek and polished, showcasing HTC’s expertise in precision metal work. The Nexus 9 tablet also has an 8.9” display with 4:3" viewing ratio that is large enough to master any task, yet small enough to hold comfortably in one hand. Weighing just 436g, it is also lightweight and easily portable.
At its heart, this easy to use, powerful tablet boasts an Nvidia Tegra K1 64-bit dual-core processor that makes switching between tasks both simple and fast, while its Keppler GPU delivers desktop grade performance and graphics in tablet form.
Front (1.6MP) and rear (8MP) cameras allow key moments to be captured as they happen, with the Nexus 9 tablet’s 2K screen (2048x1536) resolution delivering sharp detail and vibrant colors when viewing photos, browsing the web or watching videos. Dual front facing speakers feature a dedicated smart amp and HTC BoomSound profile for speaker mode, to enable stereo sound from the front of the device - perfect for music and gaming fans.
First Tablet To Run On Android Lollipop
Designed to make the most of the very latest Android Lollipop operating system, the Nexus 9 comes packed with features that make multi-tasking a breeze, while allowing for a high level of personalization and security through a range of secure login functions. Its extended battery life means you can spend more time playing and less time charging.
“The Nexus 9 is a great example of what can be achieved when two companies, united in their passion for innovative technology, come together to create a product with the user experience at the very center of the design process,” said Peter Chou, CEO, HTC. “HTC’s unrivaled design language combines with the very latest software advancements to deliver a premium tablet, inside and out. We are thrilled to be able to bring this product to market.”
