BGR reviewed the brand new Nexus 9 tablet on Monday and we didn’t beat around the bush. While we recommend you read the full review for a closer look at the good and bad aspects of Google’s new Nexus 9, we basically called it the best Android on the market for a number of key reasons. Google and HTC did a tremendous job of building a premium tablet with solid materials, great specs and the perfect size to make it both portable but still great for watching videos and being productive.
And now, despite the fact that the Nexus 9 was released just yesterday, you can already buy a brand new one for just $199 — which is an incredible half off the tablet’s regular price.
HTC announced on Tuesday that it is turning the heat up ahead of the holidays this year, offering one big 12-hour sale every Tuesday for nine weeks beginning on November 4th. And the first sale HTC has lined up is a huge one.
Beginning today at 12:00 p.m. EST / 9:00 a.m. PST, HTC is selling the 16GB Wi-Fi version of the Nexus 9 tablet for just $199. That’s a crazy 50% off the tablet’s normal price of $399.
Of course, there’s a big caveat: this particular deal is a limited-quantity sale and HTC isn’t saying how many units it’s selling at 50% off.
Once the half-price Nexus 9 tablets run out, however, there’s still a great deal to be had. Until the sale is over at midnight EST / 9:00 p.m. PST tonight, everyone who purchases a Nexus 9 through HTC’s deal site will get a $50 discount on the tablet’s price. That makes the 16GB Wi-Fi model $249 and the 32GB Wi-Fi model will cost $429 instead of $479.
After this sale is over, a new sale will begin next Tuesday, November 11th, at 12:00 p.m. EST, 9:00 a.m. PST.
