Carriers haven’t typically carried Nexus tablets. However, T-Mobile has. In fact, they carry the Nexus 7 2013 right now. But Sprint, AT&T and Verizon typically haven’t. Verizon does carry the Nexus 7 2013 right now, but it’s a bit tough to actually get it from them. As they’d rather push other tablets, that they’ll actually make money off of. Which from a business standpoint, that makes plenty of sense.
So where will the Google Nexus 9 be sold? Well in the US, likely T-Mobile and maybe Verizon. While you don’t actually need T-Mobile or AT&T to carry it, to use it on their network, it’s still nice to walk into a T-Mobile or AT&T store and pick one up instead of waiting for Google to ship it out to you. The Nexus 7 has always been available unlocked, so I’d be shocked if the same weren’t true about the Nexus 9. Additionally, the Nexus 9 is going to be available from O2 in the UK, which we saw that leak earlier this week as well, it appears to be hitting O2 in November. Which sounds about right.
