Being the year’s most anticipated Android tablet isn’t exactly an honor these days since, well, can you think of any Android tablets that have been released this year that have really gained a lot of traction? Nonetheless, we’ve really been looking forward to checking out the new Google Nexus 9, an HTC-manufactured tablet that features an 8.9-inch display with a resolution of 2048 x 1440 pixels, a 64-bit dual-core processor, a Nvidia Kepler GPU, an 8MP rear-facing camera and 3MP front-facing camera, among many other great features.
In addition to specs, the tablet is also meant to showcase Android 5.0, which Google also officially released on Wednesday. Google’s newest mobile platform has several terrific new features including Google’s new Material Design user interface that incorporates fluid physics-based animations, new actionable notifications that can be accessed directly from the lock screen, battery-saving features courtesy of Google’s Project Volta, and support for 64-bit architecture.
