When Google announced the Nexus 9 alongside the Nexus 6 and the Nexus Player, there was one crucial element that we didn’t know about; how much it would cost across the pond. As a UK resident, I was surprised that Google neglected to tell us how much it was going to cost in the UK, but we haven’t exactly had to wait for long to find out. Just as it did in the US, the Nexus 9 has appeared on Amazon in the UK, starting at £319 which is actually a little less than I thought it would retail for, especially given the high US price tag.

We spotted the Nexus 9 on Amazon this morning, and it starts at £319 for the 16GB version, jumping a bizarrely high amount to £399 for 32GB of storage and a whopping £459 for 32GB of storage and 4G LTE connectivity. These prices are pretty far north of last year’s Nexus 7 which retailed for £199.99, and while the internals and build here appear to be quite large upgrades, for some £319 might just be too much for a Nexus tablet, but considering how much has gone into the Nexus 9 it’s not too bad a price. With an 8.9-inch 2048 x 1440 display, the Nexus 9 is one good-looking tablet, but it’s also something that has some serious internals to back it up, with the Tegra K1 sporting a 2.3 Ghz dual-core 64-bit CPU and a dizzying 192-core GPU.

With Android 5.0, now known to be called Android Lollipop also launching pre-installed on the tablet, this is the best way to get some fresh Android goodness into your life. Built by HTC, this guy also features some impressive speakers utilizing the same BoomSound technology found in the HTC One line of devices. You can pre-order a Nexus 9 by hitting the links below and they’re listed to ship from November 3rd, just as it is in the US. Speaking of which, those in the US can pre-order their Nexus 9 in the US from Amazon, too.
