Amazon added two official Nexus 9 accessories to its line-up last night, the Keyboard Folio and “Magic” Cover. They are priced at $129 and $39, respectively, just like they are on Google Play. If you were looking to fit your pre-ordered Nexus 9 with some protection or productivity add-ons, now would be the time to get your order in. Amazon expects to “release” both by November 3.
There is always a chance that Google will ship pre-orders of the HTC Nexus 9 placed through Google Play a day early and those who purchased the new Nexus tablet will celebrate. However, at this point if you are an Amazon Prime member, Amazon is still looking like the best place to order the Nexus 9, assuming Amazon can ship out orders right on time. With free 2-day or super cheap 1-day shipping, I’m not sure you will get the device faster from any other retailer. Both of these accessories fall under Prime as well.

If you needed another storefront from which to order a shiny new Nexus 9, HTC itself should do you quite well. The manufacturer began accepting pre-orders for the 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi variants earlier today, with the choice of either black or white outer casing.
Interestingly, HTC is the only retailer so far to offer a ship date of October 31. That is not to say it is the best place to buy the Nexus 9, as Best Buy might suit your fancy, and Prime members will probably favor Amazon, but given how inconsistent Play Store deliveries can be, HTC might prove to be a little more reliable than some of the competition.

Two official accessories for the HTC Nexus 9 showed up on Google Play today, along with pre-orders for the device.
First, we have the Keyboard Folio, an attachable case that protects your Nexus 9 when traveling, but opens up as a full-blown keyboard. It runs $129.
Second, we have the official Cover case for the newest Nexus tablet, a case that folds in multiple ways to provide you with different viewing angles. The Cover will be available in four different colors schemes for $39.99. (more…)
Pre-orders for the new HTC Nexus 9 went up at Amazon last night and Best Buy this morning, but if you were holding out for the official Google Play pre-orders to open, that time is now.
You can buy it with 16GB and WiFi-only connectivity in white or black ($399), or with 32GB and WiFi-only in black or white ($479). The tan 32GB WiFi-only model is showing as “coming soon,” as is the black 32GB LTE model. (more…)
Best Buy pre-orders for the HTC Nexus 9 are now open as well! You can choose between all three models – 16GB WiFi ($399), 32GB WiFI ($479), or 32GB LTE ($599). You also have color choices of white or black.
Get after it! (more…)
Pre-orders for the HTC Nexus 9 may not open at Google Play until tomorrow, but Amazon has it available already. For $399, you can have the 16GB version, or for $80 more you can double that to 32GB. The device is available with Prime shipping and says it will be released by November 3.
I hate to say this, but you may get your Nexus 9 faster through Amazon than Google Play, with free or super cheap Prime shipping.
The recently announced Nexus 9 may not go up for pre-order until tomorrow, but picture and videos of the HTC-made tablet in action have already begun to emerge online.
SChannel, the Vietnamese YouTube channel of Sforum, published an overview of the device this morning. The narrator compares several aspects of the Nexus 9 to the 1st generation iPad Air, saying the body is similar in heft, but more compact and lighter than Apple’s offering. (more…)
