Nexus 9 is in fact built in collaboration with HTC, where Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is responsible for the marketing of the product, which is running on its famous Operating System for mobile devices, while HTC is the original equipment manufacturer (OEP) partner.

With a 7.95 mm thickness, 153.68mm width, and an 8.9 inch screen, the device is pretty portable. As far as the battery life is concerned, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Nexus 9 runs on Wi-Fi for 9.5 hours, on LTE for 8.5 hours and runs videos for 9.5 hours. The Wi-Fi version is 11 grams lighter than the LTE version and weighs 425 grams. The device is equipped with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Moving on to the crux of the matter, the price tag that comes with the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s new device. The cheapest one stands at $399 and has 16GB memory. The 32GB tablet without LTE costs $479 while the one equipped with LTE costs $599.

Although tablets have gained considerable popularity, they are still nowhere near smart phone sales in terms of both revenue and number of units. Moreover, tablets face competition from the larger sized smart phones, called phablets, as well. The point is that Nexus 9 is not going to solve Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s troubles, at least those in the short run which seem to centred around ‘paid clicks’ and ‘cost per click’, and were also the reason why the tech giant missed the expected earnings mark for the 3rd Quarter Earnings.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) was trading at $563.77, down about 0.72% for the day, when the closing bell rang.
