    Am I missing something or is there no wireless charging on this?

    Hoping for more info on it. Would like wireless charging for it is so convenient. But not a deal breaker for me.

    I noticed that they've done away with the 7 inch model. Unless I'm missing something. Pretty disappointing. $399? I'll go ahead and grab an 8 inch Samsung for 1/2 the price. Weird change in the business model.

    There is a specs page on the info page that you can expand. Not sure if you saw that.

    I've always thought the 7 was too small. Now with the Nexus 6 it is even smaller relatively speaking.

    The size is what I liked. I'll never go back to a tablet I have to hold with two hands. I started with the Motorola Xoom, then purchased a Nexus 7, then a 7 2. The Nexus moved on, so I will move on from Nexus. Stock Android has its downsides also. I've become a much bigger fan of Samsung's tweaks to android over the years.

    On Samsung's tweaks, we're the opposite. I am tiring of Samsung. However, on the size, we agree. I loved that my N7 was compact. I passed my Thrive 10 to my wife in order to get the N7 (2012) and then I got the N7 2013. I will have to look at the N9 to see if I think it is too big for me. If there is such a camp, 8 inches is probably where I would have fallen. I think that is as big as I would have gone.

    I'm currently using a Dell Venue 8, I think from 2013. The size is great. Swyping is difficult, but I think that would be the case for any tablet. Still undecided if I will get a Nexus 9. If anything it would be the LTE version. Not sure if I'm ready to drop that kind of cheese on it.

    Where did you order it from? It looks like the options at the google site are still greyed out: Nexus 9 ? Google

    I'm still on the fence about whether I want to get it. Maybe you are in Europe and they have already started selling there?

    Why are the memory options so limited given that there is no SD Card slot?

    It's always been this way with Nexus devices since the Nexus 4. Google is trying to get us away from the extra SD card. I'm not sure if there is a way around it, but I'm not sure if SD cards work with Android 4.4.2+.

    SD cards do work with 4.4.2+, but Google are not fans.

    As for why no option bigger than 32GB, Google have always assumed people don't need much storage. The Nexus 5 was the first Nexus phone to even offer 32GB (apart IIRC from a CDMA N4 variant, which wouldn't work in most of the world). I think they assume that everyone streams everything (a bias from being a web company? ).

    Thanks. I think if anything will wait for it to show up in the Play Store as I think best aftermarket support is through them, which I don't think you get from buying from other places.

    Hmm. Not sure what the issue is, but with my Dell Venue 8 when I specify that my netcasts be saved to the SD card it always saves it internally. Maybe it is an issue with the program am I using.

    This tablet looks awesome but I'm leaning for the Nexus 6 I think. Size easy to carry on me. Pants and jacket. Then who knows maybe I will go for both. maybe the Nexus 9 will be a Xmas gift to self. Both look so good. :)

    Any one know if the Nexus 9 has USB-To-Go. I assume rooting plus stickmount or a ROM would address it if not, so not really worried, but just curious if it popped up in the specs anywhere?
