    Planned on waiting for some reviews but once again my lack of any patience won and I pre-ordered through Best Buy. I justified in my head I didn't need to wait since I had some Best Buy Reward Point and hell that's just a deal I can't wait on. Ordered the 32 GB White after seeing it on a video on youtube and my only concern will be keeping it clean.

    Ordered mine on Saturday the 18th. 16GB white. I wanted to get the cover but wasn't available yet. I don't plan to game much on it, that's what my Shield Portable is for. I have some google Play movies but not too many and they are mostly SD so I don't think I'll need that much storage. Mostly just going to read on it, surf and YouTube... Plus the usual: email, calendar and probably evernote... It looks like its gonna be a beast though! Probably overkill for my use case but hey...

    Ouf, at first I thought, "yes". Then I was hesitating because there's only charging by the USB cable. But now I am seeing the way I am looking at this thing, and more and more it's looking like I will certainly get one.

    I own a Nexus 10. I looked a lot at the Nexus 7, version 2013. Not because I needed one, but just because I was so tempted. But I never bought the Nexus 7. And even though the Nexus 7 is a fine tablet, I am happy that I resisted a pointless (for me) purchase.

    But this Nexus 9 ? No, this time around I will just give in, and get one. The Nexus 10 will freeze up on me, once a day, since I installed Kit Kat. Once a day is not a big problem, but maybe the 9 will not do that.

    In any case, I am getting one, a Nexus 9, simply because it looks fast and I want one.

    I'm awaiting the Black Friday ads. I'm anticipating Best Buy will have about a $50 discount on the Nexus 9 and will not be a must-have line-up item. The iPad Air had that discount in 2013 when it was released on Nov. 1st, 2013.

    $429.99 for the 32GB
    • - $145 in Best Buy Gift Cards from trade-in events
    • - 10% off in-store coupon (or Discover cash back)
    • + 6.5% sales tax

    Total: $273.16

    It would be nicer if we could agree, but quite frankly, I have doubts about all that. I'd "anticipate" that it will be out of stock, but that might be wrong too. But the most likely scenario is that it won't be out of stock, and it won't be selling at a discount either, until at least February.

    I'd pre-ordered mine from Amazon UK (32GB white one via Prime to negate the carriage charge from the Play Store) and just received an email to say I wouldn't receive it before the 16th December...

    To quote Amazon:

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below was changed by the supplier, and we need to provide you with a new estimated delivery date based on the new release date:

    "HTC 8.9 inch Nexus 9 Tablet - (White) (ARM 2.5GHz, 2GB RAM, 32GB Memory, Wi-Fi, Android v5.0)"
    Estimated arrival date: December 16 2014

    One of our aims is to provide a convenient and efficient service but in this case, we've fallen short. Please accept our sincere apologies.

    You haven't been charged for these items. We don't charge your payment card until just before your parcel is dispatched, at which time we'll send you an e-mail to confirm the payment details, estimated delivery date, contents and method of delivery.

    If the order won't arrive by the time you need it, you can cancel the order or an individual item from your order by visiting Your Account, and viewing the order details. As long as the item hasn't entered the dispatch process, you'll be able to cancel it.

    We hope to see you again soon.

    Regards,

    Customer Service Department


    My guess is Play Store demand may have outstripped pre-orders from elsewhere, so would assume Google are actually making sure Play customers get theirs first... So have ordered one from the Play Store too. Fingers crossed.

    UK person here...

    I cancelled my Amazon order because of the delay until December, but Google don't have a release date for the LTE version. Bit annoying. I don't absolutely need the LTE but as I expect I'll use this for a while I'd rather get the bells and whistles version just in case.

    I ordered 16g white of amazon. Says I will have it the 4th. Really looking forward for the larger size. Hoping it doesn't seem to big as I'm not a fan of 10" tablets. Now for a case. I have the nexus 7 from 2012. And it is just starting to feel sluggish

    I'm anxiously waiting to preorder it, but until the "sand" version is available, I'm holding off. I wish Google or HTC would let us know when the sand color and LTE models will be available... And not, "Coming Soon".

    I'm not hard-pressed to pre order. My N7 (2013) is doing just great running the Lollipop preview, and I'd like to get a hands-on of the N9 at Best Buy before I decide whether to take the plunge. I'm actually liking the idea of the 4:3 aspect ratio, though, because I mostly read and browse from the N7 now; very rarely do I watch video on it.

    I just preordered from Best Buy, 32 GB Black. Sold my Nexus 7 on Craigslist for $140. Best Buy claims I'll get it on 11/4, we'll see.

    I want to get one so bad and trade in my iPad mini 2. But I didn't like the chrome browser on my nexus 7 2013. I'm waiting for this to show in stores so I can see if the browser is better

    Is it possible to pre order the nexus 9 at a best buy store or is it online only?

    Apparently you can preorder in-store, but they'll still ship it to your house.

    I preordered a white one with 32GB. I was told I would get if by 11\5 but I never got a shipment email today, 11\3, so I called Best Buy to check on it. At first they couldn't find my order and then they found it but told me I wouldn't get it until 11\13 to 11\26.
    I notice they're saying sold out online now.

    Alas. Maybe these stores like to write Dear John Letters to guys named Ollie

    Best Buy, this morning:
    We're sorry. The item listed below is unavailable at the moment. We expect that it will be ready for delivery between November 13 and November 25.

    Google Nexus 9 8934 16GB Lunar White
    I opened the email thinking it was my package tracking notice. The tablet had gone from waiting, to Processing, even charging my credit card, but never said "shipped".

    So much for Christmas in November.
