Together with the launch of the new Nexus 6 on its network, T-Mobile promised its subscribers that an LTE version of the Nexus 9 tablet would go on sale in early December. While no exact date was given, we all assumed that “early” meant the first few days of this month. However, nothing happened within the first week and the most part of the second week of December. Until today when T-Mobile announced the availability of the Google Nexus 9 4G LTE. The tablet is now for sale in carrier’s online store.

If you want to grab the slate, T-Mobile will offer you two payment options. First, you can pay full retail price of $599.76 at checkout and walk away with the brand new Nexus 9 with no further obligations. Or you can take advantage of T-Mobile installment plan and have the tablet for $24.99 per month for the next 24 months.
One more thing you should know – the Nexus 9 most like won’t be offered in-store and the only option to buy the device is T-Mobile’s Underground store. You can add the tablet to your shared data plan for only $10 per month and you will get 200MB of free data per month.
The Nexus 9 features a 8.9-inch IPS display adorned with dual front-facing HTC BoomSound speakers (the same HTC used in its flagship One smartphone). Under the hood it has a 64-bit NVIDIA K1 processor paired with 2GB of RAM and comes with 32GB of internal memory. The device is also equipped with an advanced camera offering built-in flash, HDR, geo-tagging and face detection. In addition to Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, other connectivity features include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS with navigation capability. The slate runs on the latest edition Android 5.0 Lollipop and is powered by a 6,700 mAh battery which should give you up to 8 hours of usage time.
T-Mobile’s version of the Nexus 9 is basically identical to the one offered by Google Store, the only difference being LTE radio. The Wi-Fi connectivity is very popular method of accessing the internet; however, cellular connectivity is always a bonus, especially if you are on the go in an area where Wi-Fi hotspot signals are not very strong. Are you planning to get the tablet anytime soon?
