Rogers is About to Add Nexus 9 to its Devices for $670


For those of you that would like to get your hands on a new Nexus 9, complete with LTE-enabled, your wait is over.  The Nexus 9 tablet, with 32GB of storage and in black, will soon be coming to Rogers' tablet lineup for only $.99 more that they are selling it through the Google Play Store, for a total of $669.99.  Rogers is also set to roll out its Easy Pay – a new payment plan for tablets to make it easier for a customer to purchase the normally unsubsidized prices of tablet.  We are assuming it will be similar to TELUS plan where they will finance up $480 of the device and the customer pays back $20 a month over the two-year contract…in addition to the tablet's data plan.  It would be a great idea if these two items – availability of the Nexus 9 and Easy Pay – would occur at the same time…are you listening Rogers?

The Google Nexus 9 is a great tablet, made for Google by HTC.  It retains the soft rubber-grip backing we have come to love on Nexus tablets.  Google forgoing the popular 7-inch size surprised many, but phablets have pretty much taken care of need for a tablet that size, so they decided to concentrate on the larger 9-inch display – or should I say 8.9-inch.

The display is of the QXGA variety with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, and that works out to about 288 pixels-per-inch (PPI).  Google tapped Nvidia for their Tegra K1 64-bit dual-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz.  It has 2GB of RAM and comes in either a 16GB or 32GB configuration for internal storage with no means to expand.  The main camera is a nice 8MP with autofocus and even an LED flash…a rarity for a tablet.  It uses a small 1.6MP sensor for the front-facing camera (FFC) to handle those social media selfies or the occasional video chat.  It comes with a large 6700mAh battery and even offers built-in NFC.  It comes with HTC's infamous dual front-facing stereo speakers with BoomSound and is running the newest Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
